Dynon Announces ADS-B 'In' Weather, Traffic, TFR Receiver
Dynon SV-ADSB-470 UAT Band Traffic and Weather Receiver
July 19, 2012 - Dynon announced its remotely mounted SV-ADSB-470 UAT Band Traffic and Weather Receiver that integrates with the navigational SkyView system, giving users easy access to weather and traffic information. The SV-ADSB-470 has been designed specifically for experimental and light-sport aircraft, and Dynon claims it is the most affordable permanently mounted ADS-B solution on the market at an MSRP of $995.
The device is powered directly from the aircraft, and utilizes an externally mounted antenna to additionally improve performance. Weather is displayed graphically and textually on SkyView, and includes NEXRAD radar, METARs, and TAFS. Airport weather data can be chosen based on nearest airport or specific airport identification.
Reliable and accurate traffic information will be provided to the SkyView system, even without a GPS on board, by combining the SV-ADSB-470 with Dynon's existing SV-XPNDR-261 Mode-S transponder module with ADS-B-out.
This ADS-B system requires the aircraft to be ADS-B OUT equipped before traffic information is provided, and Dynon's Transponder is fully DO-260B/ADS-B-out certified. Nearby traffic threats will generate an audio alert so that the pilot does not constantly need to look at the screen to be aware nearby aircraft.
All information is available with no monthly description fees, based on the FAA's ADS-B broadcast in the U.S.
This new SkyView module will be available this fall, along with SkyView system firmware updates, and the SV-XPNDR-261/262 transponder modules.
