As a result of this technological breakthrough the INTEGRA offers the international flying community a number of major benefits over the standard ELT models available on the market today.
"In case of a crash landing, distress beacon antennas can easily be cut or broken and thus unable to send signals. Thanks to this technological advancement, in case of the disrupted antenna located at the external part of the plane, the distress beacon INTEGRA will automatically detect the dysfunction, take over and will send the signal to the satellites" explains Jean-Yves Courtois, CEO of the Orolia group.
The INTEGRA ELT can also be installed on certain models of aircraft without having to fit an expensive external antenna (national authorities rules and regulations permitting) and additional external GPS interface. This will reduce cost and complexity for the aircraft owner when choosing to install the all-important life saving device.
Weighing in at just 850grammes and measuring just 175mm x 99mm x 86.4mm the INTEGRA boasts of a number of new and innovative features in a very small easy to install package. The INTEGRA transmits on both the international 406MHz satellite search and rescue system and on 121.5MHz for local direction finding. Fully TSO'd. Minimum operating temperature of the unit: -20°C.
The INTEGRA is available for installation on all types of aircraft, fixed wing (AF and AP versions) and helicopters (AF-H and AP-H versions). The INTEGRA is supplied as a kit and includes a universal mounting bracket, a remote control unit and additional connectors. The internal battery life of the INTEGRA is 6 years and the transmission on 406MHz when activated is a minimum of 24 hours.
