RESCU 406 Automatic Fixed Navigation (AFN2)

RESCU 406 Automatic Fixed Navigation (AFN2)

Honeywell’s RESCU 406 automatic fixed navigation (AFN2) delivers the next generation of emergency locator transmitter (ELT) with a smaller, lighter and easy-to-use interface.

Honeywell’s RESCU 406 automatic fixed navigation (AFN2) delivers the next generation of emergency locator transmitter (ELT) with a smaller, lighter and easy-to-use interface.

It’s available in a single or six-axis G-switch configuration and automatically activates upon impact in the event of a crash. The transmitter's internal navigation input (ARINC 429) module connects with the aircraft navigation database to reduce search time by transmitting the latitude/longitude information in the 406 MHz signal in the event of activation.

Our ELTs aid search and rescue operations by transmitting distress signals on the standard Guard frequency of 121.5 MHz, as well as the new 406 MHz developed to work with the COSPAS-SARSAT search and rescue system. 

A smaller lighter Aircraft Identification Module (AIM2) dongle replaces the larger AIM/NAIM used in some 406AF or 406AFN installations, and automatically reprograms the ELT, making it easy to move the ELT from one aircraft to another.
