Trig Avionics, (AirVenture Hangar C) has a mantra we can appreciate - provide avionics with the features pilots really use and don't mind the fluff. Their Air Venture news today is they've gained STC approval for their panel mount TT31 and (within days) compact TT22 transponders. Both play nice with Garmin GPS sources, namely the popular GTN series.
As an ADS-B out provider, the TT31 and 22 are intriguing as the TT31 mates to the King KT76A/KT78A tray and antenna. For our space-constrained experimentals, the TT22 fits in a 2-in. round hole and is just 2-in. deep (3 ½-in. including the wiring harness).
Trig Avionics is adding the possibility of 1090ES ADS-B receiver capability to general aviation with three products targeted at light aircraft, high-performance aircraft and turbine aircraft. The TA62, TA63 and TA64 will be fully certified C166b receivers, and are expected to be shipping at the end of 2010.
The FAA is investing millions in the ground infrastructure for ADS-B as part of the Next Generation air traffic system, and one of the benefits for U.S. pilots is that any aircraft participating in ADS-B Out can also receive an uplink of all the nearby traffic, even if the other aircraft has only a conventional transponder. To get this traffic information the pilot needs an ADS-B In receiver. Continue reading "New 1090ES Traffic Receiver Leverages ADS-B Network"
