UAT ADS-B Out
skyBeacon features a UAT (978MHz) transmitter and specially designed blade antenna. The design minimizes installation error and antenna placement issues.
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.
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.
LED Position Lighting and Strobe
Extremely efficient LED position and anti-collision lighting complete the skyBeacon package.
The skyBeacon mobile application will automatically configure the ICAO address, emitter type, aircraft length, width and GPS offsets by accessing the aircraft registration information stored online.
