ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter) are not required in gliders, however highly encouraged and required at some US contests. ELT's are activated either manually by a switch or automatically in a crash. Some 406 ELT's are GPS compatible allowing for a more accurate location. ELT's are preferred over PLB or GPS tracking devices in an accident where the pilot may be incapacitated or unable to reach the device.
