Classic Aero-TV: UAvionix - Transitioning Between Manned & Unmanned Technologies

From 2017 (YouTube Version): ADS-B For Airplanes And Drones…

ADS-B technology developed by uAvionix has come full circle. The company began with a device developed for manned aircraft, scaled that down for the drone market, and now has scaled back up with a new device for manned aircraft with the Echo UAT system.

Ryan Reed, director of Communications and Support for uAvionx, told ANN news editor Tom Patton at Sun 'n Fun in April that the early devices were heavy and used a lot of power, which is not ideal for small UAVs. So they made the devices smaller, lighter and more efficient for use on drones.

That system was scaled back up to a 20 watt transceiver to meet ADS-B specs.

Reed said that everyone involved in the company is also a pilot, and they looked at available ADS-B equipage solutions, and found them to be generally bulky, heavy and behind the technology curve. Echo UAT is a feature-rich medium-class device that will interface with popular EFIS units available for LSA and experimental aircraft as well as smartphone and tablet-based EFBs.

The device is currently priced a $999.
