Emergency Locator Transmitters are tracking transmitters which aid in the detection and location of boats, aircraft, and people in distress.Strictly, they are radio beacons that interface with Cospas-Sarsat, the international satellite system for search and rescue (SAR).When activated, such beacons send out a distress signal that, when detected by non-geostationary satellites (the old 121.5 ELT signal), can be located by triangulation. In the case of the new 406 MHz beacons which transmit digital signals, the beacons can be uniquely identified almost instantly via geostationary satellites, and furthermore, a GPS position can be encoded into the signal (thus providing both instantaneous identification and position). Often using the initial position provided via the satellite system, the distress signals from the beacons can be homed by SAR aircraft and ground search parties who can in turn come to the aid of the concerned boat, aircraft, or people. The Cospas-Sarsat system operates 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
