The DK-406-DT is the latest in the AeroELT™ family of products designed and manufactured by Dukane Seacom in its Sarasota, FL. headquarters.

Dukane Seacom’s AeroELT™ product family consist of integrated ELT solutions designed and tested to the current and future requirements for worldwide ELT operations. With focus on safety and high reliability, the AeroELT™ product family provides improvements in automatic triggering as well as meeting DO-227A compliance for containment of a lithium battery thermal runaway event. They utilize multi-axis MEMS technology to automatically detect impact, improving trigger reliability over traditional “G-Switch” triggers. A self-contained GNSS receiver further enhances the ability of search and rescue to quickly locate an aircraft in distress worldwide.
