This paper deals with the problems faced by the current designs of aircraft-based emergency homing devices like ELTs (Emergency Locator Beacons) and ULBs (Underwater Locator Beacons). Particularly, it deals with issues like low battery life of the transmitters and remaining in a deactivated state even after a crash. Many alternative methods are proposed which can make the homing beacons more efficient.
