ADS-B Solutions

By the end of 2019, the FAA will require all aircraft that fly in controlled airspace to be ADS-B compliant. Elliott Aviation’s avionics team is equipped to handle ADS-B solutions for most part 23, 25 and 91 aircraft to ensure you are not left grounded.

What is ADS-B?

The FAA mandates are all centered on ADS-B OUT. ADS-B OUT is a broadcast through the Mode S transponders of your aircraft position, vector, altitude and velocity to ADS-B ground stations. This broadcasted information is dependent on a highly accurate WAAS GPS position source to ensure safety. For the aviation community as a whole, this mandate will allow air traffic controllers more efficiently route traffic and reduce congestion and fuel consumption.

Your two equipment options are the dedicated 978 MHz Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) or a 1090 MHz Mode S “extended squitter” transponder with an approved WAAS GPS navigation source. If you have a WAAS GPS equipped in your aircraft, you may just need your transponders updated or replaced.

ADS-B In

In addition to ADS-B OUT, ADS-B IN gives you free datalink traffic and weather that can be shown on select displays and mobile devices. With a proper dual-link receiver, ADS-B IN allows you to see all ADS-B equipped aircraft in your vicinity because it receives signals from 978 UAT and 1090 MHz ES transponders. It also allows you see a traffic picture similar to what the air traffic controllers are seeing when you are in range of an ADS-B ground station.

Who is Affected?

All aircraft that fly in controlled airspace. This includes nearly 180,000 aircraft in the United States.
