Aero-TV: uAvionix Debuts New Technologies at AirVenture

The Toys of Summer

Founded in 2015 with the mission of advancing the integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the United States’s National Airspace System (NAS), Montana-based uAvionix develops small, light, affordable ADS-B transponders. A fundamental aspect of the company’s mission is the facilitation of common situational awareness to all aircraft within a given airspace. uAvionix provides innovative, low-Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) TSO-certified and uncertified avionics and services to customers in the General Aviation (GA), Defense, and UAS sectors.

EAA AirVenture 2023 saw the debuts of uAvionix’s digital AV-HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator) and AV-APA (Analog Port/Autopilot Adapter). The two units respectively display via and are driven by uAvionix’s AV-30 Primary Flight Display (PFD).

Depicted in broad strokes, uAvionix’s AV-30 PFD is a highly-capable, fully-digital, multi-mode instrument that mounts in legacy 3? inch round instrument-panel cutouts, and can be field configured to appear and function as either an Attitude Indicator (AI) a Directional Gyro/Heading Indicator (DG/HI), or the aforementioned HSI.

When configured as an AI, the AV-30 continuously displays primary attitude and slip data. The display’s unused portions can be customized to show a variety of textual and graphical data-overlay fields. When configured as a DG/HI, non-slaved direction of flight or GPS track may be displayed. Moreover, pilots may choose between multiple display presentations, to include compass rose, GPS CDI, and GPS arc views. Finally, configured as an HIS, the AV-30 displays heading, symbolic aircraft, course-selector, Course Deviation Indicator (CDI), glide slope, ground speed, DME, and waypoint.

By way of future offerings, uAvionix’s AirVenture display included a prototype yoke-mounted, articulating weighted device by which light-aircraft may be steered. Referred to unofficially as the Retro-pilot, the device—by dint of a weight moved laterally across tracks affixed to one of the host-aircraft’s control-yokes—functions as a wing-leveler, and will, when fully-developed, facilitate GPS steering in conjunction with extant AV-30 GPS interfaces.
