Avionics company uAvionix has release a new Detect and Avoid (DAA) ADS-B receiver for commercial Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) called pingRX Pro. The receiver detects private and commercial aircraft operating on 978MHz and 1090MHz. The received aircraft identity, position, and altitude are visualized on a moving map in real-time allowing the UAS operator or autopilot to remain well clear.
According to the uAvionix press release, the new pingRX Pro continues uAvionix’s lineage of easy to integrate receivers with direct support for Ardupilot-based autopilot systems. By adding the protection of an aircraft-grade aluminum case and detachable remote mount antenna, pingRX Pro ADS-B receiver is suited to professional UAS operators who need flexibility for limitless UAS applications.
Weighing less than 8 grams, pingRX Pro features uAvionix ping ADS-B, installed in over a half-million ADS-B solutions worldwide, from UAS to airport vehicles to certified General Aviation solutions. pingRX Pro offers an external antenna allowing operators to install the pingRX Pro anywhere on the airframe. UAS are often designed from materials that can block radio frequencies and impair radio performance. By providing an external remote mounted antenna, performance can be maximized while providing critical protection of the receiver mounted inside the fuselage.
uAvinoix pingRX Pro is expected to be available in Q4 2020 for the retail price of USD349.
