AXP340 Mode S Transponder Meets NextGen ADS-B Out Mandate

Avidyne Corporation has introduced their new AXP340 Mode S Transponder with ADS-B Out capability to meet the mandate for the NextGen airspace initiative. The AXP340 transmits ADS-B Out information via Extended Squitter (ES) to appropriately-equipped ground stations and other ADS-B In-equipped aircraft, providing improved airborne surveillance as well as vital information for airport ground surveillance.

“ADS-B Out will be required in most U.S. airspace by the year 2020, and the AXP340 is designed as an easy-to-upgrade solution that meets this mandate while also adding several new functions that make flying easier,” said Patrick Herguth, Chief Operating Officer, announcing the new transponder on Wednesday. “The AXP340 features an easy-to-use direct-entry numeric keypad, one-touch VFR code entry, built in timers, and an altitude alerter, plus it’s a slide-in replacement for the popular KT76A and KT78A Mode A/C Transponders.”

“ADS-B is a key feature of the future airspace plans in the U.S., Europe, Australia and other parts of the world, and Avidyne is committed to being a leading provider of ADS-B avionics solutions,” said Dan Schwinn, Avidyne President and CEO.  “Avidyne previously announced our TAS600A Series of active traffic systems with ADS-B In. Now, we have introduced the AXP340 with ADS-B Out, which is just the next in a series of announcements from Avidyne for ADS-B and NextGen avionics.”
