New product to be introduced as part of its exhibition at the 2016 NBAA-BACE Convention and Tradeshow in Orlando
Orlando, Florida - Cobham AvComm, has announced today its new
ADS-B INTEGRITY™ Test Application. The new app controls Cobham's
IFR6000 or IFR6015 Transponder Test Sets and GPSG-1000 Positional
Simulator to support Supplemental Type Certification (STC) and post
approval testing for ADS-B equipment installations per FAA Advisory
Circular AC 20-165B. For R&D and factory test, the app will
control Cobham's IFF-45TS/A MK XII/A Bench Test Set and the
GPSG-1000 for ADS-B Out performance. A complete, detailed ADS-B Out
compliance report in FAA format, including a measurement for total
latency, can be generated showing Pass/Fail criteria.
The following is taken from the FAA.gov
Any airspace that requires the use of a Transponder today
will on January 01, 2020 also require aircraft to be equipped with
2 ADS-B Out system. This can be either a 1090ES (DO-260B) ADS-B
system or a UAT (DO-282B) ADS-B system.
For aircraft operating above FL180 (18,000 ft.) or to comply
with ADS-B mandates outside the United States, you must be equipped
with a Mode-S transponder-based ADS-B transmitter. For aircraft
operating below 18,000 ft. and within the United States ADS-B rule
airspace, you must be equipped with either a Mode-S
transponder-based ADS-B transmitter or with UAT equipment.
"We're very excited to introduce to the industry an application
that will allow a complete test of AC 20-165B prior to flying the
aircraft," said Guy Hill, Director of Avionics Test Products for
Cobham AvComm. "Equipment installations can be completed more
quickly and with fewer issues to help save time and money."
