ECT - DTS (Data Transmission System)


The Data Transmission System is a cockpit on-board tracking and data transmission device that transmits real-time GPS location, altitude, bearing, time and velocity information over the web, through a secure Internet connection using IE or Firefox or more. A self-contained device, the DTS only requires connecting one antenna and the power supply, making it very convenient for helicopters.

The pilot can use the friendly interface to send pre-recorded messages to the ground by simply rotating and clicking one push button. Installation and integration cost on aircraft are minimized.

Tracking history is available on the web as well as on a SD card directly accessible on the front panel. The DTS device is DO-160D approved and STCs are available on several aircrafts.
