Abstract:

This report documents the first phase in the development of Emergency Radio Beacons ERBs for the marine environment. This first phase consisted of testing and analyzing existing Radio Beacons in order to prepare performance specifications for ERBs and associated DFHomers. This study answered the questions Are existing Emergency Locator Transmitters ELTs applicable in a marine environment. If they are not applicable what changes are required. Are there any technical limitations. What type of DFHoming equipment should be used. Appendices A and B contain the initial performance specifications for the ERBs and DFHomers. Author
