For a limited time, NavWorx, Inc. is offering 40% off its transmitter upgrade for the company’s ADS600 ADS-B traffic and weather receiver. The company also is offering a 15% discount on its forthcoming ADS600-B transceiver unit. This new unit will incorporate both transmit and receive capabilities. To take advantage of these limited-time discounts, customers must make their purchase prior to April 18, 2010, or the close of Sun ‘n Fun Fly-In 2010.
NavWorx is currently developing its transmitter capability, which will be offered as an upgrade option for current ADS600 owners, as well as be integrated into the ADS600-B transmit and receive unit. FCC approval of the transmitter is expected shortly, company officials said. Current ADS600 units function as receive-only devices, however, they can be upgraded for two-way communication. Standard upgrade pricing will be $1,000. Customers who purchased the remote-mounted ADS600, or portable PADS600, can upgrade with the transmitter for $600 through April 18. ADS600-B pricing will be $2,495. Customers who purchase the remote-mounted ADS600-B can do so for $2,120.75 before April 18. A fully refundable payment is required at the time of purchase.
Two-way communication forms the foundation of the new NextGen air traffic control system called ADS-B, or Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast. The NavWorx ADS600 product line allows pilots to receive ADS-B signals, including TIS-B traffic and FIS-B flight and weather information for display on a variety of devices. ADS-B signals are received from Air Traffic Control as well as other equipped aircraft. The new ADS600-B has the added capability of transmitting an aircraft’s GPS-derived position, vector and speed. The NavWorx ADS600 line of products operate off an expanding network of ADS-B transmitters across the continental U.S., Gulf of Mexico, and Alaska.
Both ADS-B receivers are designed for certified, experimental, and light sport aircraft.
