PMV Engineering just received an EASA STC certificate for the installation of a TECHTEST survival ELT on Airbus A320 family aircraft. 

This STC dealt with the latest EASA requirements for embodiment of non-rechargeable Lithium Batteries, e.g compliance with ETSO C142A associated with a risk assessment at aircraft level in order to substantiate that a thermal runaway of the Lithium battery included in the ELT would not impair the safety of flight.

As a reminder, any installation of part or appliance including Lithium Battery is classified by EASA as a Major Change (STC) due to EASA Special Condition.
