McMurdo Group, a global leader in end-to-end search and rescue (SAR) and maritime domain awareness (MDA) solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Embraer to provide complete Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) shipsets for its E-Jets second generation of aircraft, the E-Jets E2. The contract will include McMurdo Group's award-winning Kannad Integra ELTs with its new ARINC GPS Interface fitted on the aircraft, and Kannad 406MHz Survival ELTs for use by crew members in the cabin. The ELTs will be installed in various Embraer E-Jets E2s, including the E175-E2, E190-E2 and E195-E2 versions, starting in 2018. Kannad Aviation ELTs are already integrated into Embraer's existing Phenom 100, Phenom 300, Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 business jet aircrafts, and are used by some of the world's largest aircraft and airline brands including Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Pilatus, British Airways, China Airlines and United Airlines.

“This key win at Embraer continues McMurdo Group's leadership in the aviation industry with our innovative Kannad ELT product family, recently enhanced by Kannad Integra's ARINC GPS interface option,” said Jean-Yves Courtois, CEO McMurdo Group. “For over 60 years Kannad Aviation has provided aircraft manufacturers, airlines and other leading aviation companies with high-performing and highly reliable search and rescue technologies.
