Becker Avionics innovator and digital technology provider Becker Avionics has received certification for the company’s BXT6500 family Mode S transponder, designed specifically for the rigorous flying environment characteristic of helicopter operations. Paired with a FreeFlight Systems’ 1203C SBAS/GNSS sensor, these remote-mounted solutions provide helicopter operators a complete and cost-effective way to equip with ADS-B Out for the upcoming January 1, 2020 mandate.
The Becker BXT6500 family Mode S transponder is diversity-capable and available for installation on non-TCAS equipped aircraft. A non-diversity option is also available. In addition to providing clients with ADS-B compliance, the system features enhanced privacy settings that can disable both ADS-B and Mode S transmissions – a feature unique to the BXT6500 family.
“We are pleased to announce this new milestone in our transponder product line,” said Forrest Colliver, Managing Director. “This new system showcases how we tailor our compact, robust and durable avionics to our clients’ requirements in order to provide the best solution for where and how they fly.”
This system is a part of the Company’s robust BXT6500 line of ADS-B Mode S transponders available in the marketplace today. Manufactured with a standard ARINC 429/743 output, this transponder easily integrates with the FreeFlight Systems Model 1203C SBAS/GNSS sensor for complete ADS-B Out compliance, and can be installed either as dual installation for primary transponder interrogations or as single install for a dedicated ADS-B transmission.
