KANNAD makes high quality, high performance distress Personal Locator Beacons selected by the world most famous aircraft builders and airlines companies.
The KANNAD XS-4 PLB with GPS is a compact and versatile 406 MHz emergency location beacon and is one of the smallest and lightest PLBs on the market today. It's so small that it will fit into your shirt pocket!
The Cospas-Sarsat System is the only system to provide distress alerts and location data of 406 MHz beacons activated anywhere in the world. The distress signal is relayed by the Cospas-Sarsat LEOSAR satellites to the ground stations (LUT) that calculate its position thanks to the Doppler Effect. With a built-in GPS, the GEOSAR satellites receive the signal and position within 5 minutes. The Mission Control Center (MCCs) network processes the information and informs the nearest Rescue Coordination Center (RCC) so that SAR authorities can organize rescue operations.
