Situational awareness is mission-critical.
Your safety is our top priority. Knowing where other aircraft are located, in real time, is imperative to the success of your mission. With the Avidyne’s SkyTrax technology, situational awareness is no longer a guessing game. Avidyne’s dual-antenna SkyTrax600 Series ADS-B-capable Traffic Advisory Systems, featuring VeriTAS, bring affordable high-performance active-surveillance traffic detection to the flight decks of general aviation aircraft.
The SkyTrax6XX Series Traffic Advisory Systems (TAS), which are based on the technology originally developed for air transport category traffic alert and collision avoidance systems (TCAS), have been available for general aviation aircraft for several years, but have been cost-prohibitive for many owner-flown aircraft. Until now.
Avidyne’s dual-antenna SkyTrax600 Series TAS Systems detect other aircraft sooner and more accurately, so you avoid surprises due to the shadowing effects inherent with single-antenna systems. Using top and bottom directional antennas, SkyTrax systems actively interrogate other aircraft, providing timely audible and visual alerts with the precise location of conflicting traffic. The dual-antenna SkyTrax Series provides full-time protection and higher performance. Because when it comes to safety, you want to see the whole picture.
SkyTrax100B Receiver for ADS-B IN
Avidyne’s SkyTrax100B Receiver provides Flight Information System-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather information, including NEXRAD radar, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, Special Use Airspace (SUA), and Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs). SkyTrax100B provides a affordable ADS-B IN solution for general aviation aircraft equipped with Avidyne IFD systems and EX-Series MFDs*
978MHz ADS-B Solutions for Whatever You Fly
Using the 978MHz datalink frequency band, which is one of two channels available to pilots in the United States airspace for ADS-B, Avidyne’s SkyTrax100B Receiver provides Flight Information System- Broadcast (FIS-B) weather information, including NEXRAD radar, METARs,TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, Special Use Airspace (SUA), and Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs). The SkyTrax100B will also receive traffic information* directly from nearby 978MHz-equipped aircraft, and indirectly through the rebroadcast of 1090MHz-equipped aircraft via 978MHz ADS-R. Traffic information from aircraft not participating in ADS-B is received from ground stations via 978MHz TIS-B transmissions (Traffic Information Service-Broadcast).
Weather Detection: TWX670
Lightning is the first physical property of a storm cell that can be detected, and unlike precipitation, lightning is the best determinant of dangerous thunderstorm activity.
Avidyne’s TWX670 is a third-generation lightning-based weather detection system that provides a simple and intuitive color-contoured display with an instantaneous picture of surrounding weather. Storm cells and their intensities are displayed in color contours eliminating the guess-work associated with interpreting legacy weather displays. Providing a color-contoured map of a thunderstorm’s electrical activity over time, the TWX670 easily allows the pilot to determine the areas of greatest intensity, and clearly identify areas with potential for convective wind shear, turbulence, microbursts, hail and icing.
