EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedNavWorx makes ADS-B portable, affordable
 
The search for an affordable ADS-B solution just got a little easier, thanks to new products announced this week by NavWorx, Inc. The company said it began deliveries of new additions to its existing ADS600 series of ADS-B receivers, bringing NexGen traffic and weather information to a cockpit near you. The NavWorx product line includes portable devices as well as a Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) designed to meet or exceed FAA TSO-C154c, a minimum performance standard for UAT ADS-B equipment.

Three models currently are in the NavWorx ADS600 product line: the ADS600, a remotely mounted UAT receiver designed to display ADS-B data on a variety of EFIS displays and portable devices; the PADS600, which is a portable unit equipped with Bluetooth and USB output for use with similar in-cockpit devices; and the ADS600-B, another remote-mounted device similar to the ADS600 but with send and receive capabilities.

The NavWorx ADS600 series includes options for both ADS-B In and ADS-B Out. ADS-B Out provides aircraft broadcast of own-ship information, the self-reporting component. ADS-B In refers to an aircraft’s ability to receive free ADS-B information. ADS-B operates on the existing global GPS system and a rapidly expanding U.S. infrastructure, and is one of the foundations of the FAA’s planned next-generation ATC system.

“Having traffic and weather displayed in real time in the cockpit is a huge improvement to the safe operation of any aircraft,” commented NavWorx President Bill Moffitt. “The ADS600 supports traditional gathering of weather information from forecasts, including text-based sources.

Visual traffic and weather depiction can be tremendously helpful. Pilots can now see traffic and weather at the push of a button,” he added.

For further information, drop by the company’s AirVenture booth, number 2081, in Hangar B, or visit its website, www.NavWorx.com.
