UAT ADS-B Out
skyBeacon features a UAT (978MHz) transmitter and specially designed blade antenna. The design minimizes installation error and antenna placement issues.
UAT Transmitter: TSO-C154c Class B1S
A built-in WAAS GPS provides skyBeacon with rule compliant position data for ADS-B transmission. No additional wiring or external GPS antenna mounting is required.
WAAS GPS: TSO-C145d Class Beta 1
Altitude Encoder with Continuous Calibration™
The integrated altitude encoder does not require connection to the aircraft static pressure system. Instead, skyBeacon benefits from being mounted in an ideal altitude sensing location, and contains Continuous Calibration™ technology. This patent pending technology automatically and continuously calibrates the integrated altitude encoder for correspondence with the aircraft transponder’s altitude encoder, allowing compliant operations in remote and challenging environments.
Pressure Altitude Reporting Equipment: TSO-C88b
LED Position Lighting and Strobe
Extremely efficient LED position and anti-collision lighting complete the skyBeacon package.
Position Lighting: TSO-C30c
