Fly Without Boundaries

tailBeaconX is the next era of global ADS-B. Compatible with surface and space-based ADS-B surveillance systems, tailBeaconX is a Mode S Extended Squitter ADS-B transponder and aviation GPS integrated into an LED rear position light. With global compliance, tailBeaconX is the key to limitless destinations.

Transponder Redefined

  • Mode S ADS-B OUT Transponder
    Mode S + ADS-B OUT Transponder meets airspace requirements worldwide.
  • Integrated Certified GPS Receiver
    tailBeaconX includes a certified SBAS GPS receiver and antenna. No additional GPS is required.
  • More than a Mandate
    The AV-20-E and AV-30 have been upgraded to include transponder control functionality! The tailBeaconX combined with the AV-30-E or AV-20-E multiplies your cockpit functionality while future-proofing your ADS-B system to meet current and inevitable mandates worldwide.
  • Aireon Compatible
    The tailBeaconX with integrated dipole antenna is specifically designed to maximize performance when tracked by the Aireon space-based ADS-B satellite constellation.
  • LED Lighting
    The integrated 20,000 hour rated LED position light ensures the tailBeaconX draws less power than your old incandescent bulb.

Think Outside the Airframe
tailBeaconX is the world’s first transponder designed as a rear position light replacement. The 1090MHz Mode S ADS-B OUT transponder satisfies the requirements for all existing and inevitable ADS-B regulations worldwide, especially those leveraging space-based ADS-B. Fly knowing no matter your destination, tailBeaconX will keep your aircraft connected.

World-Wide Coverage
tailBeaconX embraces the future, providing precision ADS-B data to the Aireon satellite network without the need for diversity antennas. When it comes to terra firma, tailBeaconX also exceeds the performance of traditional panel installed transponders that use belly mount antennas.

Less Ground Time / Easiest Install
tailBeaconX mounts in place of your existing rear position light. The GPS, space-based, and ground-based antennas are integrated in to the lens housing. No new holes or pentetration of pressure vessels are required making tailBeaconX the lowest-hassle easiest install period.

Looking to the Future
tailBeaconX is the first commercially available avionics solution developed with the needs of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) in mind. Electric Vertical Take Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft, powered by batteries and alternative fuels, require radically different solutions than those that exist today. tailBeaconX weighs only 90 grams, takes no critical volume from an internal avionics bay, incorporates its own antennas, and draws only 3 watts of power. This results in longer flight times and higher payload capacity for the next generation of airborne mobility.
