The information would be used by search and rescue personnel to identify the aircraft in distress and to select the proper rescue units and search methods. The information is used by NOAA to maintain a database used to provide information about the owner of an activated ELT of an aircraft in distress. If the collection were not conducted, NOAA would not have access to this information which would increase the time needed to complete a search and rescue operation.
