NavWorx Receives FCC Authorization For ADS600-B Transceiver

The FCC has authorized NavWorx ADS600-B Transceiver. Introduced in April, the ADS600-B incorporates both transmit and receive capabilities of an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) and is designed to meet FAA TSO-C154c. The ADS600-B generates symbology from traffic and weather broadcasts to be viewed on a variety of cockpit displays. ADS-B operates on the existing global GPS system and an expanding ADS-B infrastructure in the U.S. The ADS600-B can be installed on any aircraft.

On June 17, 2010, Grant of Equipment Authorization was awarded to NavWorx the FCC. NavWorx' ADS600-B was certified and tested by independent firm Nemko Canada, an FCC-recognized Telecommunications Certification Body, headquartered in Canada. Nemko certifies products to U.S. standards and in accordance with FCC rules. Numerous tests were performed including: RF power output, Occupied Bandwidth, Spurious Emissions at Antenna Terminal, Frequency Stability, and Field Strength of Spurious Emissions. The ADS600-B has a maximum 40-Watt output and operates on a single antenna. ADS-B equipment uses the 978 MHz frequency as specified by FAA TSO-C154c. Testing was performed Lewisville, Texas, nearby the NavWorx' Dallas-area headquarters.

"We have extensively tested our equipment, and FCC acceptance confirms the depth of design work that went into the ADS600," said Bill Moffitt, President of NavWorx. ADS-B offers significant benefits to pilots. Best of all, it is affordable and available now. With no subscription required, pilots can take advantage having traffic and weather displayed in real time in their cockpit."

The NavWorx product line consists of the ADS600 and PADS600, both ADS-B receivers designed for certified, experimental, and light-sport aircraft. The ADS600-B, priced at $2,495.00, is presently non-TSO'd. The ADS600-B takes full advantage of the free broadcast of traffic and weather under the FAA-mandated NexGen ADS-B network.
