ADS-B Mandates Are Coming
ADS-B, or Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast, is an upcoming mandate put in place by the FAA to make the skies safer for everyone. Using GPS technology, which is far more reliable than radar, ADS-B will allow air traffic control to safely reduce separation minimums. By December 31, 2019, all aircraft will be required to transmit ADS-B to ground stations.
Seamless Garmin ADS-B Solutions
Elliott Aviation’s Garmin ADS-B STC’s replace existing Collins TDR-94-D transponders with dual remote mount Garmin GTX-3000 smart transponders. The system also installs a Garmin GDL-88, GA-36 and Flightstream 110 to provide WAAS/GPS to the GTX-3000 along with FIS-B and TIS-B to a Bluetooth compatible device
The STC provides a cost effective alternative to current solutions available. The STC is similar in design to the ADS-B solution Gulfstream provides for the G150 & G200 series aircraft. It incorporates the remote mount transponders from the latest Garmin G5000 FAA part 25 certified avionics suite. This design does not require additional modifications to the avionics and provides seamless integration to the existing cockpit controls.
Garmin’s Flight Stream adds additional benefits to the solution by providing an ADS-B IN capability that allows pilots to receive subscription-free flight information service-broadcast (FIS-B) weather information, including NEXRAD, METAR, TAF’s and NOTAMs. These can be displayed on a mobile in-cockpit device, negating the need for a cockpit display upgrade.
