Miniature ADS-B Receiver
TIM-C1 – 1090MHz ADS-B UAV Receiver
The TIM-C1 is an OEM high-performance ADS-B receiver built around a combination of a multi-core processor and a powerful FPGA for high-speed data processing and aircraft tracking. Capable of receiving thousands of frames per second, the system utilises a high-resolution ADC with real-time signal processing based on a state-of-the-art adaptive algorithm.
RF power measurement for each frame allows distance estimation for Mode-S operation, and a GNSS input can be connected for dynamic calculations of relative distances to the aircraft. A high-sensitivity front-end provides jamming and ESD protection with a range of over 200 miles.
System integration of the module is straightforward, and communication can be achieved with a variety of simple AT commands sent over a high-speed UART.
Designed to meet the requirements of TSO-C199, the TIM-C1 is a highly scalable, flexible OEM solution that weighs just 2 grams making it ideal for a wide variety of UAV and drone applications, including Sense and Avoid / collision avoidance, UAS ground stations, mobile air traffic information, and high-density traffic surveillance and analysis.
