Universal Avionics joins forces with Rockwell Collins to offer affordable ADS-B Out Solution
Universal Avionics has joined forces with Rockwell Collins to bring an affordable, integrated Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out solution to Business Aircraft operators. The solution was designed to allow operators to add the Rockwell Collins TDR-94(D) Mode S Transponder to their Universal Avionics SBAS-Flight Management System (FMS) installation to meet the ADS-B Out mandate. In addition, operators are able to equip for Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) and Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV).Universal Avionics SBAS-FMS is an approved ARINC 743A position source, required for ADS-B Out compliance. As the foundation of the ADS-B solution, it interfaces with all ADS-B transponders including the commonly used Rockwell Collins TDR-94(D).
