Serenity UAV with Sagetech Transponder

Transponders

Our XP family of transponders is ideal for the SWaP (size, weight and power)-critical requirements of unmanned systems applications. All transponders are integrated with a pressure sensor and an altitude encoder that are compliant up to 60,000 feet. Altitude data can be output via RS-232 serial comms to a wide range of compatible flight computers, and integration is simple thanks to the low footprint and light weight.

Video: Sagetech & Arcturus ADS-B Joint Operation

Sagetech Corporation and unmanned aircraft manufacturer Arcturus UAV demonstrate joint flight operations between manned aircraft and a drone using the FAA NextGen ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) system. The two companies simultaneously flew a manned Cirrus SR-22 and unmanned Arcturus T-20 in adjacent airspace while operators and the pilot used the ADS-B system to track one another’s position and flight path in real time.
