The uAvionix PingRX ADS-B receiver is perfect for small UAV’s. The small, low cost receiver provides the ability for your drone or UAV to sense and avoid other aircraft in the sky. Weighing just a mere 1.5g, the Ping RX ADS-B is small enough to be placed on a wide variety of applications. Beginning in the year 2020, the FAA will mandate that all aircraft within US National Airspace has ADS-B technology onboard, to ensure a safer flight for everyone in the air.
ADS-B technology is used extensively now on manned aircraft, so by miniaturizing the equipment, uAvionix has brought the features and capabilities to unmanned aircraft as well. With its lightweight design and small size, the Ping RX ADS-B has a negligible impact on payload, even on smaller UAV drones. The device itself is capable of detecting any ADS-B compliant aircraft from within an estimated 50KM/31Mile radius.
In July of 2016, uAvionix issued a press statement announcing that they were working together to implement a collision avoidance developer kit. That kit is now available and can be implemented by following the guide located here.
pingRX ADS-B Receiver measures 32mm x 15mm x 3mm, which is a fraction of the size of earlier units. The small footprint and extremely low weight of pingRX results in greatly enhanced situational awareness with almost zero impact on payload and performance.
Cross Platform Support Features
Increased awareness and safe operation in the airspace is not limited to one platform. uAvionix has worked to integrate pingRX with multiple autopilots, ensuring mission success across all applications and software.
