The emergency locator transmitter is a mostly self-contained device engineered both to survive most aircraft accidents and, when triggered by deceleration forces, to begin transmitting a "whoop, whoop" audio signal (homing beacon) on 121.5 (and formerly on 243.0 MHz) MHz.
It welcomes every audio signal found in today's broadcast plant.
The amplifiers in these and similar units use the Class-D topology (Figure 2), which is often likened to a switching power supply driven by an audio signal instead of a reference voltage.
Comparing to the human visual system (HVS), the human auditory system (HAS) is more sensitive and easy to perceive subtle changes in the audio signal. This is also why audio signal processing is more difficult than image and video signals.
In the first stage, the audio signal is processed with transposition cipher.

It supplies award-winning audio signal processing and audio-visual test and measurement products for the cinema and pro AV industries.
By processing an audio signal with Philips' echo cancellation, noise suppression, and/or beam-forming processors before passing it to Sensory's speech recognition engine, much of the unwanted ambient noise in signals can be filtered out, leaving the critical speech portion of the signals largely untouched.
