World’s smallest Mode S Transponder now available

Sagetech Corp. is now accepting orders for its new Mode S Transponder with ADS-B Out, which was released for production last week.

The Sagetech XP family of transponders offers the lightest and smallest transponders in the world, ideal where size, weight and power are at a premium, according to company officials. They have a footprint the size of a business card and, at 100g, weigh 30% less than an iPhone, officials explain.

All Sagetech XP Family Transponders have an integrated altitude encoder, which is compliant to FAA TSO requirements. The Sagetech XP Mode S Transponder with ADS-B Out provides full ICAO Mode S performance and ADS-B extended squitter outputs. In addition to the new Mode S transponder, Sagetech offers a Mode C unit and is working on the ADS-B In/Out version.

Sagetech Corp., formed in 1998, provides avionics subsystem products, services and solutions for the aviation industry. These solutions range from avionics modules and sensors to the world’s smallest Mode S transponder. Sagetech, headquartered in White Salmon, Wash., has 100 employees.
