SkyTrax Series ADS-B-capable Traffic Advisory Systems
Avidyne’s dual-antenna SkyTrax Series ADS-B-capable Traffic Advisory Systems, featuring VeriTAS™ bring affordable high-performance active-surveillance traffic detection to the flight decks of general aviation aircraft.
With the new dual-antenna SkyTrax Series, Avidyne offers three different TAS systems, tailored for the type of aircraft you fly. Fully TSO certified, surpassing the performance capabilities of many higher-cost traffic systems and setting a new standard for active-surveillance traffic capability and affordability.
Dual Antennas simply perform better
Avidyne’s dual-antenna SkyTrax Systems detect other aircraft sooner and more accurately, so you avoid surprises due to the shadowing effects inherent with single-antenna systems.
ADS-B, which stands for “Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast,” is a new surveillance technique for air traffic control being implemented in the United States (and other countries). With ADS-B, an appropriately-equipped aircraft determines its own position using a WAAS-capable global positioning system (GPS) and periodically broadcasts this position and other relevant information to ground stations for use by Air Traffic Control (ATC) and to other aircraft with “ADS-B In” equipment for display on compatible on-board multi-function displays. ADS-B is automatic in that no pilot or controller action is required for the information to be issued, and it is dependent on all airplanes having compatible equipment (ADS-B Out) that transmits their position and velocity information. A DS-B can be used over several different data link technologies, but the two most discussed are Mode-S Extended Squitter (1090 ES) and Universal Access Transceivers (UAT). ADS-B provides accurate information and frequent updates to airspace users and controllers and is intended to improve the use of airspace, reduce ceiling and visibility restrictions, improve surface surveillance, and enhance safety.
