NextGen avionics leader FreeFlight Systems and digital avionics leader, Becker Avionics have partnered to offer a complete ADS-B Solution for business and commercial class aircraft. By combining the strength and integrity of the Becker Avionics BXT6513 Mode S transponder with FreeFlight Systems 1203C SBAS/GNSS sensor, and RANGR-RX ADS-B Receiver, these remote mounted solutions will provide turbo prop and turbo jet business aircraft a complete and cost effective way to equip with ADS-B In and Out for the upcoming January 2020 mandate.
“With less than three years remaining to meet the ADS-B Rule, there is a lack of cost effective, high quality options for the business aircraft market.” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Pete Ring. “By partnering with Becker Avionics, we are offering aircraft operators a cost-effective option to equip without the need to completely overhaul their panel and avionics systems. This is an ideal solution for many of our customers where a non-disruptive remote mounted option is preferred.”
“Becker Avionics has a long history of offering high quality cost-effective avionics for both commercial and mission aircraft, providing a good value proposition for operators of business aircraft seeking compliance with the 2020 ADS-B rule.” said Director of Sales and Marketing, Thomas Terschlusen.
“We are pleased to team with FreeFlight Systems to offer a complete solution for these operators, including transponder, GNSS source and ADS-B In receiver certified as a package”.
The 1203C SBAS/GNSS meets TSO-C145C as the dedicated position source required for ADS-B and the BXT6513 transponder meets the ESTO-C112d and TSO-C166b for ADS-B OUT compliance. The complete system meets the requirements of AC20-165Bfor ADS-B rule compliance. The diversity capable system is suitable for installation on TCAS I and TCAS II equipped aircraft. A non-diversity option is also available. The system is compatible with a variety of common control heads and can be installed in either single or dual configurations.
