tailBeacon TSO LED Tail Position Light, from uAvionix
with ADS-B Out UAT & Integrated WAAS GPS

  • Features a UAT (978MHz) transmitter and specially designed blade antenna
  • A built-in WAAS GPS provides rule compliant position data for ADS-B transmission
  • No airframe modifications or additional antennas are required
  • Works with any Mode C or Mode S transponder
  • Transponder data is provided via the aircraft wiring system using the power transcoder
  • The installation requires 2 screws and reuses the existing power and ground to your current position light.

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

WAAS GPS
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, tailBeacon 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

Goof-Proof Configuration
Mechanically installing an ADS-B solution is only half the battle. The skyBeacon mobile application can also be used to configure tailBeacon. The intuitive, easy to use app guides you through setting the necessary values including the ICAO address, emitter type, aircraft length, width and GPS offsets. Since tailBeacon is self-contained there are no serial ports settings or protocols to configure. The skyBeacon mobile application is available for both Apple iOS and Android.
