Description

PingStation All-Weather Network Ready ADS-B Receiver by uAvionix is a dual band (978MHz and 1090MHz), networkable ADS-B receiver with a Power-Over-Ethernet (POE) interface enclosed in an IP67 rated protective enclosure.

PingStation provides ground, surface, or low-altitude ADS-B surveillance within line of sight of the antenna, with range dependent upon the output power of the transmitting ADS-B transceiver. PingStation is robust enough to be permanently mounted outdoors in harsh environmental conditions and small enough to be used as a mobile asset for roaming operations. Installation is simple with included pole mount bracket and requires a single POE cable which provides both power and data communications.

An integrated GPS provides position and precision time-stamping for messaging.

Multiple PingStations may be networked together to provide a wide area low-altitude surveillance volume.  Data messages are available in JSON or Compressed VRS.

Features

  • Detects ADS-B equipped aircraft on 1090MHz and 978MHz within a 150-mile radius in real time
  • Based on exclusive pingTM Silicon Radio
  • Meets or exceeds all receive performance requirements specified by DO-282B and DO-260B
  • Environmentally protected enclosure with adaptable mounting options
  • Simple power and connectivity options using Power over Ethernet (POE)
  • Network multiple receivers to enable a wide area low-altitude surveillance network
  • US patents pending

 

Rugged All-Weather Design

  • PingStation is designed for extreme weather
    • The corrosion-resistant IP67 housing is suitable for harsh environments
  • A lightweight design and minimal profile reduces wind loading
    • Low-power and low-heat design requires no cooling

 

Integration with existing applications

AirBOSS by INDMEX

AirBOSS Web provides a simple and intuitive Internet browser tool that provides a real-time common operational picture visualization of aircraft and vehicle movement in the airport.

Virtual Radar Server

Virtual Radar Server is an open-source .NET application that runs a local web server. You can connect to the web server with any modern browser and see the aircraft plotted on a Google Map.

IRIS UAS

IRIS UAS by Kongsberg Geospatial is a situational awareness platform developed to provide UAS operators with the necessary situational awareness to safely operate UAVs Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight (BVLOS).

 

Expandable Network

PingStation installation is scalable for greater coverage. Network multiple pingStation receivers to create an ADS-B surveillance network. Multiple PingStations may be networked together to provide a wide area low-altitude surveillance volume.
Data messages are in JSON format as described within the PingStation ICD.
