(USGovernment-News.Com, July 14, 2017 ) “Digital technology plays a key role in the emergency beacon transmitter market”
Digital technology is primarily utilized in beacons operational at 406 MHz frequency. Whereas, analog technology is used in beacons operational at 121.5 MHz and 243.0 MHz frequencies. The digital technology segment commanded the highest market share, followed by the analog technology segment in 2015. This high share is mainly attributed to the fact that digital beacons provide more accurate results in comparison to analog beacons. Moreover, digital beacons possess microprocessors that are required to filter out unnecessary electromagnetic noise.
“Military aviation vertical holds the highest market share in the emergency beacon transmitter market”
The military aviation segment has registered the highest market share in 2015, due to the increasing adoption of emergency beacon transmitters in the military aviation sector and high expenditure made by governments across varied regions to enhance their defense ability. In situations pertaining to transferring of weapons, arms, and ammunitions, if any emergency situation arises, emergency beacon transmitters help military aircraft send signals about its exact location to the earth station; this information is further passed on to the search and rescue teams for necessary action.
“North America has emerged as the leading region with respect to adoption of emergency beacon transmitters”
The North America emergency beacon transmitter market is driven by technological advancements made in the field of emergency beacons, such as GPS-enabled personal beacons and GNSS-equipped beacons, which provide rescuers with accurate information in emergency situations. In 2008, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) mandated the installation of emergency locator transmitters in both civil and military aircraft in the U.S. Other countries such as Russia have passed stringent regulations owing to the usage of emergency locator transmitters in all types of aircraft. Over the past few years, the emergency beacon transmitter market recovered its growth due to the launch of highly reliable beacons operational at 406 MHz frequency, and its varied advantages such as global coverage, location accuracy, reliable signals, and faster response time.
Major players in the emergency beacon transmitter market include ACR Electronics, Inc., McMurdo Group, HR Smith, Emergency Beacon Corporation, Cobham Plc, and ACK Technologies, Inc.
