Kannad Aviation has obtained approval from Transport Canada and Industry Canada for the INTEGRA 406 GPS Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT). This certification means the INTEGRA 406 GPS ELT can now be sold, installed and certified on aircraft throughout Canada.
The new INTEGRA 406 GPS ELT is a major step forward in the development of ELT technology and aircraft safety equipment. It is the only ELT in the world which offers an internal GPS and a 406MHz integrated antenna.
This clever internal antenna offers a unique advantage in that, even if the aircraft suffers considerable damage through impact, the INTEGRA will activate automatically and still have the ability to transmit and send both aircraft identification data and GPS position. Thanks to the self-sufficient embedded GPS receiver, the INTEGRA will continue to transmit its lifesaving message even when the crew remove it from the aircraft.
The INTEGRA can also be installed where an ELT is exempted from mandation, and can be used without any external antenna subject to the fuselage construction; this offers great saving in procurement and installation costs.
As the smallest and lightest ELT on the market, the INTEGRA weighs just 26.6oz and has a standard installation dimension of 5.51” x 3.86” x 3.40”. The INTEGRA is available for immediate distribution throughout Canada.
