I knew about the survival kit, flares and dye, but it seems like there would be something onboard the aircraft, using the aircraft radio / transponder
/ etc to confirm an ejection event. More power, bigger antenna, longer range communication. All the items you are describing are attached to parts
(seat, crew, parachute, etc.) which separate from the aircraft. What I'm suggesting is something which is attached to the aircraft and uses the
aircraft communications systems. As noted, it wouldn't get them to the exact location of the crew, but it would be close. This, in addition to the
equipment which separates from the aircraft.
Just seems like there should be some sort of a real-time automated link to ATC/command to annunciate that the crew has ejected and the aircraft has
been abandoned. I mean, it is a pretty irreversible event, and means that there's about a 100% the aircraft has been lost. So, it's about the single
most important event which could ever take place.
