ARTEX ELT 1000 ACE BASE PACK
Whip Antenna Rod Antenna
The ARTEX ELT 1000 is a value-priced upgrade to standard 121.5 MHz transmitters, which are no longer monitored by the Cospas-Sarsat system. The 406 MHz transmitter produces a much more accurate position, typically 3 kilometers as compared with 15 to 20 kilometers for 121.5 MHz transmitters. When coupled to the aircraft navigation system via a navigation interface, the ELT 1000's accuracy improves to approximately 100 meters.

Q: If this Artex ELT 1000 has an internal GPS, why does it need to be connected to the aircrafts navigation system?
Per the supplier: The Artex ELT 1000 does not have an internal GPS. It runs off the aircraft GPS.
Q: What is the difference between the Artex ELT 1000 ACE and the Artex ELT 1000? I notice the price is significantly different but the specs appear to be the same.
The ACE is an ACK E-01 replacement kit. For a new install, you will want to order the ELT 1000.
