406 MHz ELT Tester (Test Set)

406 MHz / 243 MHz / 121.5 MHz ELT TESTER is designed to check the avionics emergency locator transmitters (ELT) operating via COSPAS-SARSAT system. It provides accurate testing in volume of annual or maintenance requirements or fast check after ELT's encoding or installation in accordance with USA (FAA Part 91.207), Canada (CAR 571 Appendix G), Europe (CAA/EuroCAE) requirements.

Airborne AIS Tester (Test Set)

Airborne AIS Test Set provide reliable testing of Airborne/Aircraft Automatic Identification System operation. The AIS Test Set is intended for verification of marine and avionics AIS installations. The AIS Tester is specified equipment for radio surveyors, classification societies and administrative authorities. AIS Tester allows to test all type of AIS transponders of any manufacturer.

BT-611M Beacon Tester (Pro Ver.)

BT-611M Beacon Tester is designed for high accuracy and resolution measurements of the full set of beacon signal parameters to check its compliance with the ones, specified in C/S doc. T.001, T.007. The tester is succesfully used for Cospas-Sarsat type approval certification process. It is professional specified test equipment for beacon manufacturers or test laboratories, service centers.

Sarsat Beacon Monitoring System

Cospas-Sarsat Distress Signal Homer Receiver is specially designed for 406MHz emergency radio beacon signals detection, reception, verifying, decoding and positioning. It is a wide range ground/mobile real-time COSPAS-SARSAT signal decoder designed to locate and verify emergency distress signals sent by any 406MHz ELT in local search area.

Aircraft Radio Test Set

The Aircraft Radio Test Set enables functional and verification testing of MF/HF/VHF airborne radio equipment, emergency locator transmitters as well as airborne AIS stations. Aircraft Radio Test Set is be used to diagnose faulty radio communications equipment while installed in the aircraft. Set fulfills the specific requirements for maintenance, repair and device verification after production.

Beacon Simulator BG-105

Beacon Simulator BG-105 is high-precision simulator of Cospas-Sarsat emergency beacon messages. BG-105 allows to simulate up to five simultaneously operating beacons with messages overlay in time. The generator is intended to operate under PC control to provide the customization of main parameters of each simulated beacon on every of five channels by means of terminal program.

Beacon Decoding Software on-line

If you would like to determine the beacon country code you need to obtain the 15 HEX id of the beacon and use the Beacon Message Decoding Program.

Just input the 15 HEX code to the appropriate field and press decode. Note the link to ITU List of MID Country Code Numbers if the country code displayed only in view of digits.

406 MHz beacons are identified by the content of the message that they transmit. Within the Cospas-Sarsat System beacon message content is identified using the hexadecimal representation of the binary bits encoded in the beacon, and are presented in either a 15, 22 or 30 hexadecimal character representation.

Distress Beacon Testing

Cospas-Sarsat 406 MHz distress beacons should only be activated when a ship, aircraft or person is in distress that is in grave and imminent danger and requiring immediate assistance. In between the manufacturers’ recommended maintenance and battery replacement cycles, the beacon can be tested by the owner using the self-test capability to ensure the continued functionality of the beacon.

There is normally no need for the beacon to be tested in an operational mode by a beacon owner.

The information provided in the following sections provides guidance on beacon testing and the procedures required in the unlikely and unusual event that an operational test of a beacon is required. The Maritime Safety Authority (MSA) does not grant approval for beacon operational tests unless the procedures outlined below have been adhered to.
