The skyBeacon (UAX9003201) is 2020 compliant and a class B1S ADS-B UAT transmitter and WAAS GPS that is integrated into a wing tip position light. With ease of installation and configuration and reduced down times, the skyBeacon provides an innovative and cost effective ADS-out solution without requiring panel modifications or a new transponders.




The skyBeacon features a UAT (978MHz) transmitter and specially designed blade antenna that minimizes installation errors and antenna placement issues. A built-in WAAS GPS provides rule compliant position data for ADS-B transmission with no additional wiring or external GPS antenna mounting. The skyBeacon’s power transcoder decodes replies from legacy Mode C and Mode S transponders so that a new transponder is not required. Additionally, the integrated altitude encoder does not require connection to the aircraft static pressure system. Instead, skyBeacon benefits from being mounted in an ideal altitude sensing location, and contains Continuous Calibration™ technology. This patent pending technology automatically and continuously calibrates the integrated altitude encoder for correspondence with the aircraft transponder’s altitude encoder, allowing compliant operations in remote and challenging environments. An extremely efficient LED position and anti-collision lighting complete the skyBeacon package. The skyBeacon integrated solution consists of a total of five (5) TSOs:
  • ADS-B (TSO-C154c, Class B1S)
  • GPS (TSO-C145d, Class Beta 1)
  • Barometric altitude sensor (TSO-C88b)
  • Position Light (TSO-C30c, Type I)
  • Anti-collision light (TSO-C96a, Class II)
