    How the COSPAS-SARSAT System Works

    Although it may seem like I am avoiding the issue, it is probably better that you go directly to the people that are the experts!

    The first link is for the COSPAS-SARSAT website which tells you in far more detail about the whole system than I ever could.  Click on the picture below to find out more.

    The second is a document from the UK CAA about testing of ELTs, but it does give some very useful information on how the doppler effect affects how the ELTs position is identified.  Click here.

    As I come across more, I will post them here.
