uAvionix Receives Patent for tailBeaconX Transponder
uAvionix, the pioneer in communications, navigation, and surveillance avionics for manned and unmanned systems, has announced it has been granted a new patent enabling safety and surveillance benefits with the use of space-based ADS-B for General Aviation (GA). U.S. Patent 11,011,830 titled “Wireless Communication System within an External Enclosure for Attachment to a Vehicle” provides the ability to leverage the wing and tail locations of an aircraft for the installation of a transponder to gain optimal performance from both ground and space-based infrastructure.
uAvionix recently released an article titled “Diversity Transponders and Space-Based ADS-B”, which discusses the uAvionix tailBeaconX’s advantages and its superior performance compared to traditional belly-mount diversity transponders when tracked by the Aireon space-based ADS-B surveillance network.
tailBeaconX has revolutionized the transponder to support current and next-generation aircraft by making installations more flexible, more affordable, and performance far more reliable. tailBeaconX received TSO authorization from the FAA this year, with preorders now being accepted pending STC approval this summer.
