uAvionix tests skyBeacon X ADS-B transponder against space-based data

uAvionix is testing its skyBeacon X wingtip-mounted Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) transponder with signals transmitted from Aireon’s satellite-based global ADS-B network and reports early results which show the wingtip location operates well with both ground and satellite-based surveillance systems. It is an LED position light replacement with an integrated 1090MHz Mode S transponder, GPS position source, barometric altimeter, and LED position and anti-collision lights. uAvionix expects skyBeacon X to be certified and available in 2021 as an affordable solution capable of supporting requirements for all types of aircraft to be ADS-B equipped in controlled airspace, including airspace using space-based signals.
