The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) established the Global Aeronautical Distress Safety System, (GADSS) and published Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) in an effort to improve global aircraft flight tracking and search and rescue (SAR).
The SARPs define aircraft tracking provisions including operator performance requirements for normal tracking and distress tracking capabilities, and operator data retention requirements.

Aircraft Tracking (AT);
Autonomous Distress Tracking (ADT); and
Post Flight Localization and Recovery (PFLR).
