Dukane Seacom Inc. Receives FAA Certification for Underwater Locator Beacons


Dukane Seacom Inc., a HEICO company (NYSE: HEI.A and HEI) received FAA certification under TSO-C121b and TSO-C142a for its 90-day underwater locator beacon. The DK120/90 is certified to operate for a minimum of 90-days of continuous operation in water, giving search crews an extended amount of time to locate and recover the flight data and voice recorders in the event of an incident.

The DK120/90 90-day beacon has the identical external dimensions as the existing designs and is a drop in replacement for the DK100 and DK120 series part numbers. New units are available for immediate purchase and an exchange/upgrade program is being offered for in-service units through our authorized distribution partner Seal Dynamics.

“Dukane-Seacom is pleased to offer the industry’s first TSO’d 90-day underwater locator beacon. The extended operating life of the DK120/90 will give investigators the additional time they need to locate voice and data recorders in the event of an incident in water,” said Anish Patel, President of Dukane-Seacom and Radiant Power Corp.
