Dynon Ships New ADS-B "In" Weather and Traffic Receiver for SkyView

Dynon Avionics is shipping the SV-ADSB-470 UAT Band Traffic and Weather Receiver for its SkyView system. It is a permanently mounted ADS-B In solution that has been designed specifically for Experimental and Light Sport Aircraft.

This remotely mounted receiver module integrates with the SkyView system to provide access to weather and traffic information on top of the navigational information SkyView already provides. It is powered directly from aircraft power and uses an externally mounted antenna (not included) for improved performance.

All information displayed is free with no monthly subscriptions, based on the FAA’s ADS-B broadcast in the U.S. Weather is displayed graphically and textually on SkyView and includes NEXRAD radar, METARs and TAFS. Airport weather data can be chosen based on nearest or by airport identifier.

Additionally, when paired with an ADS-B “Out” capable SV-XPNDR-26X Mode-S transponder, the SV-ADSB-470 receives a full traffic portrait from the FAA ADS-B system. This portrait is tailor-made for the SkyView-equipped aircraft and includes all ADS-B and radar targets that the FAA can detect. In contrast, other portable/receive-only ADS-B solutions receive only “partial” traffic when another ADS-B “Out” equipped aircraft happens to be nearby, drastically reducing their traffic-sensing capabilities, according to Dynon.

The SV-ADSB-470 is suitable for use only in the U.S. with the FAA’s ADS-B system, as it receives data via the U.S.-only 978 MHz UAT frequency. It will not receive traffic, weather or TFRs in other countries.

The SV-ADSB-470 is priced at $995.
