Southeast Aerospace (SEA), located in Melbourne Florida, has been contracted by Auburn University through its Aviation Management /Professional Flight Education Program to develop a complete ADS-B solution including an AML STC.
Through the development of this ADS-B project, SEA plans to support the GA market with an STC with AML approval for a 978MHz UAT solution. This solution is to meet the ADS-B DO-282B certification. The contract will include Engineering, Certification and Installation of the FreeFlight RANGR ADS-B Out system in a Cessna 172S. This project in its entirety, including engineering, will be managed by Southeast Aerospace personnel.
The equipment chosen for this project includes: FreeFlight FDL-978-TX RANGR UAT, TC-987 control head, RF decoder, 1201 GPS/WAAS receiver, two L-band antennas, and a GPS/WAAS antenna. In addition to the equipment, SEA will provide full FAA DAR/DER services. These value added services include detailed documentation such as Electrical & Structural Installation Drawings, Accomplishment Instructions, Wire Routing Diagrams, Instructions for Continued Airworthiness, and Aircraft Flight Manual Supplements. On-site installation of equipment, testing and certification will be completed by SEA during this STC program.
Once this initial ADS-B â€œOutâ€ project has been completed and STC/AML approval has been received, SEA will be offering an ideal ADS-B installation solution to the public to address the upcoming ADS-B mandate.
