FreeFlight Systems Ships Affordable, Upgradable XPLORER ADS-B Datalink Receiver

Upgradeability Gives Pilots Access to Subscription-Free Cockpit Weather Now And Full ADS-B Weather & Traffic Data When ADS-B Out Equipped

FreeFlight Systems announced Monday the immediate availability of its XPLORER receiver, an affordable, high-­-performance datalink weather receiver with upgradability to full ADS-­-B In weather and traffic data capabilities when installed with a certified ADS-­-B Out transmitter. Based on FreeFlight Systems’ certified RANGR family of 978MHz ADS-­-B systems, XPLORER receives the full ADS-­-B Flight Information Service Broadcast (FIS-­-B) that includes graphical weather.

XPLORER connects wirelessly to any suitable display including the iPad running FreeFlight Systems’ free app and other supported software including WingX Pro. The XPLORER system is permanently installed and includes an externally mounted ADS-­-B antenna for unimpeded reception of broadcast data. The FreeFlight Systems XPLORER solution also is priced less than glareshield-­- or windscreen-­-mounted datalink weather receivers that offer no upgrade path. The XPLORER solution can be integrated with a certified ADS-­-B Out transmitter as required in advance of the December 2019 equipage deadline.

With a certified transmitter installed, the XPLORER system becomes a full-­-featured FIS-­-B receiver that enables display of weather and accurate traffic data. Other weather receivers installed without a certified ADS-­-B Out transmitter allow the display of incomplete and potentially hazardous traffic information.

“With the ADS-­-B deadline and an installation capacity crunch both looming, it's important for aircraft owners to purchase avionics that add value now while bringing them closer to full NextGen compliance,” said Tim Taylor, CEO of FreeFlight Systems. “Our affordable XPLORER system is priced less than other weather receivers, adds subscription-­-free in-­-flight weather now and access to safe and accurate traffic data when installed with a certified ADS-­-B Out transmitter.”
