Cost of Airborne ADS-B equipment
« on: August 06, 2008, 02:32:44 AM »
A question to our users: does anyone know the price of an ADS-B equipment to be installed on a general aviation aircraft like a Cessna 172? What models are available?

Any help appreciated.

I don't think any of these have integrated ADS-B, which was the original question.

Dave,

Do they not all support ADS-B and only require the addition of a GPS input.

PTT31 Installation Manual
Quote
5.5.10 GPS Position Input
The GPS position input is required to support ADS-B functionality. The GPS position input is an RS232 input to the transponder and is on the 12 way secondary connector. The ADS-B features are optional – no GPS is required for normal Mode S Elementary Surveillance.
The TT31 GPS input can recognise either the industry standard “Aviation” format or the NMEA 0183 format; the interface speed can be selected between 4800, 9600 and 19200 bps.
There is also an RS232 output on the 12 way connector for future expansion. This pin is unused and should be left unconnected.

ADS-B ready, supports Extended Squitter, connection
to GPS receiver with optional adapter cable

Becker BXP6403
Quote
The BXP6403-1-(01) is a compact and lightweight
single block Mode-S transponder. It is certified according
to ETSO-2C112a and is suited for VFR and IFR
operations up to 50000 feet.
The transponder is equipped with extended squitter and
SI code function and it provides an interface to the central
aircraft data system. It allows ELS, supports EHS, as
well as ADS-B via extended squitter.

I think most light aircraft are now equiped with a GPS receiver with NMEA output.

I'm not sure about the "most". 

If that's true then I'm surprised at - out of all the light aircraft that now have a Mode S transponder - how few have seem to have their GPS hooked up to it ...

I still only need one hand to count the ADS-B-equipped spamcans I've picked up  :-)
