The 406 ELT Beacon Monitor w/Ethernet & GPS Receive Capabilities from WS Technologies, Inc. provides real-time monitoring for all Cospas Sarsat 406 MHz beacon transmissions. This device displays and decodes 406 messages with the ability to automatically receive all past, present, and future Cospas Sarsat channels. All information is organized in an XML format for use in a database; additionally, information can be time-stamped and data logged. A GPS antenna and receiver allow the user to obtain precise geographical data which is then automatically mapped to Google Earth™, making it easy to view the GNSS location data with Google's detailed array of mapping features. Users can connect it to their PC via USB or Ethernet cables - the latter has the added benefit of allowing users remote management and diagnostics options.
