Trig Avionics has unveiled a new high-power member of its Mode S transponder family. The new system, which will be available in January, is called the TT22, and is based on the design and technology of the company’s TT21 Mode S transponder. The key difference is that the transmitted output power of the TT22 is higher, qualifying the unit as a Class 1 transponder, company officials said. The TT22 is fully certified with EASA ETSO and FAA TSO approval for IFR and VFR flight.
“The TT21 is very popular, especially in the microlight and glider communities,” said Andy Davis, CEO of Trig Avionics. “What was missing was a higher output version. With the TT22 we are adding just that.”
The TT22 is part of the Trig Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) product line, and includes extended squitter ADS-B out, a key feature of future airspace plans. An appropriate GPS receiver is required to enable the ADS-B capability.
