FDL-978TX Meets FAA Requirements For NextGen
The FAA has granted a TSO to FreeFlight Systems for its RANGR
FDL-978TX ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) UAT
978MHz transmitter. The RANGR FDL-978TX system will interface to
FreeFlight Systems WAASGPS receiver 1201, dual antennas, and a
panel mounted control head.
The RANGR FDL-978TX will provide pilots with the first V2
compliant TSO-C154c UAT Transmitter to comply with the Advisory
Circular AC 20-165. The system will provide air traffic controllers
with course, speed, and altitude data continuously, as well as to
other ADS-B equipped aircraft.
The company says the system weighs less than a
pound and is relatively easy to install. It also meets all
DO-160 testing for helicopter applications.
“FreeFlight Systems is excited to be the leader in NextGen
technologies and the RANGR is our first success. ADS-B is the
future of air traffic control providing increased situational
awareness, improved spacing and efficiency,” said Tim Taylor,
CEO of FreeFlight Systems. “The development of the RANGR was
no easy task and the MITRE technology saved us at least 2 years of
development.” FreeFlight Systems is offering special
introductory pricing now through April 2012.
