“Any pilot needs sound judgment, superior flight skills and the latest technologies to aviate, navigate and communicate. I trust McMurdo’s long history of aviation innovation to ensure the safety of our passengers and crew.”

– Airline Pilot


Today, McMurdo is shaping the future of aviation with a broad, state-of-the art range of ELTs for a variety of aviation markets.  The Kannad Integra ELT, for example, is the most innovative ELT in the aviation industry with a dual-antenna design and embedded GPS to ensure that distress signals and positioning data can be sent independent of the aircraft systems.

Leading aircraft manufacturers (including Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Embraer, Pilatus and others) and major airlines (such as British Airways, China Airlines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines and others) trust McMurdo products, technologies and innovations for their aviation-specific search and rescue needs.

For tomorrow, we are working closely with aviation industry standards bodies and aircraft manufacturers to design and develop the next-generation GADSS aviation system – aviation beacon, tracking and communications systems – all with McMurdo technology at its core.

So, fly with confidence knowing that you are backed by the global leader in emergency readiness and response with over 150 years of combined experience.
