Dynon has introduced the SV-ADSB-470 UAT Band Traffic and Weather Receiver for the SkyView system. This remotely mounted receiver module integrates with the SkyView system to provide access to weather and traffic information on top of the detailed navigational information SkyView already provides, company officials said.
At an MSRP of $995, the SV-ADSB-470 has been designed specifically for experimental and light sport aircraft. It is powered directly from aircraft power and utilizes an externally mounted antenna.
All information displayed is free with no monthly subscriptions, based on the FAA’s ADS-B broadcast in the USA. Weather is displayed graphically and textually on SkyView, and includes NEXRAD radar, METARs, and TAFS. Airport weather data can be chosen based on nearest or by airport identifier.
By combining the SV-ADSB-470 with Dynon’s existing SV-XPNDR-261 Mode-S transponder module with ADS-B out, traffic will be provided to the SkyView system, even without a certified GPS on board. The ADS-B system requires the aircraft to be ADS-B OUT equipped before traffic information is provided, and Dynon’s Transponder is fully DO-260B/ADS-B out certified so SkyView owners will receive a complete traffic picture any time ADS-B services are available, company officials said. Nearby traffic that is a threat will generate an audio alert so that the pilot does not need to keep looking at the screen to be alerted to nearby aircraft.
Robert Hamilton, director of marketing at Dynon, said, “We’re excited to offer in-flight weather on SkyView. It is the number one feature asked for by our customers, who want fully integrated real-time data that is subscription free.”
This new SkyView module will be available in the fall, along with firmware updates to the SkyView system and the SV-XPNDR-261/262 transponder modules.
