uAvionix is a manufacturer of lightweight, low footprint communication, navigation and separation solutions for small drones/sUAS/UAVs. Our certified ADS-B, Mode S transponder, and GNSS devices allow customers to safely and reliably operate unmanned aircraft in civilian airspace.
ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast) technology helps aircraft operators sense and avoid possible collisions. ADS-B has been mandated by the FAA for all aircraft in the U.S. National Airspace by 2020.
MicroLink is an aviation grade, miniature, Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) data link radio specifically designed for long range, robust, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) telemetry data links. Ideal for size, weight, power and performance sensitive applications, MicroLink operates in the 902-928MHz ISM band where no FAA approval is needed.
The SkyLink Command and Non-Payload Control (CNPC) Data Link is a Command and Control (C2) frequency modulated radio intended for BVLOS point-to-point or networked UAS operations.
Each SkyLink unit includes dual radios which enable “make before break” (MBB) connectivity when transitioning from one ground station to the next. MBB ensures a solid handoff between one operator using one ground station to another operator using a second target ground station by ensuring the target has a solid connection before releasing control from the initial operator.
|Input Power||11 – 34V, 16W peak|
|Radio Band||960 - 1164MHz|

The pingStation dual-band, network-ready ADS-B receiver that can detect ADS-B equipped aircraft on 1090MHz and 978MHz, within a 150-mile radius in real time. It can be permanently mounted outdoors and can be used in harsh environmental conditions – the Power-Over Ethernet (POE) interface is enclosed in an IP67 rated protective enclosure.
pingStation provides ground, surface, or low-altitude ADS-B surveillance within line of sight of the antenna, with range dependent upon the output power of the transmitting ADS-B transceiver.
|Voltage/Power||44-57V / 500mW|
pingUSB is a USB interface version of the pingRX dual-band ADS-B receiver. Featuring an integrated antenna and a Micro-USB connector, pingUSB provides accurate, high-quality tracking data for ground-based identification and visualization of aircraft in real time.
pingUSB easily integrates with software such as Virtual Radar Server and services including ADS-B Exchange.
ping2020i combines the ping2020 ADS-B transceiver with the FYXnav GPS navigation source and an integrated barometer. This all-in-one ADS-B solution is easy to install and integrates with Pixhawk Autopilot and DJI drones.
ping1090i combines the ping1090 ADS-B transceiver with the FYXnav GPS navigation source and an integrated barometer. This all-in-one ADS-B solution is easy to install and integrates with Pixhawk Autopilot and DJI drones.
Designed to meet the Transponder and ADS-B requirements for operating UAS in controlled airspace, the ping200X is a complete system that is fully configurable as any combination of Mode A, Mode C, Mode S transponder and Extended Squitter ADS-B transmitter.
The system includes a barometric sensor with accuracy beyond 60,000ft, and weighs in at only 50g.
|Input Power||11 – 34V, 1.5W Continuous On/Alt, 4W peak (8ms max)|
|1090MHz Transmit Power||250W nominal|
The ping200Sr system combines a Mode S ADS-B Out transponder with an integrated, high integrity WAAS GPS sensor and a precision, temperature controlled, barometric pressure sensor with accuracy beyond 80,000ft.
Weighing less than 80g with a compact form factor, the system is designed for system integrators looking to meet the conspicuity requirements for operating UAS in controlled airspace. The GPS and transponder antenna are both remotely mountable, providing flexible installation.
|Input Power||11 – 33V, 2W Ave On/Alt, 1W Standby|
|1090MHz Transmit Power||250W nominal|
Weighing just 20 grams, the ping20Si is the world’s smallest and lightest 20W Mode S ADS-B transponder with integrated GPS and barometer. It allows unmanned aircraft to respond to Mode S radar interrogations by ATC and TCAS, and also transmits ADS-B on 1090MHz. Requiring no autopilot integration, the ping20Si can be simply powered and wirelessly programmed.
|Input Power||11 – 16V, 1W Ave On/Alt, 0.5W Standby|
|1090MHz Transmit Power||20W nominal|
truFYX is the world’s first TSO-certified SBAS GPS position source designed specifically for UAS autopilots and ADS-B OUT solutions. The system incorporates the GPS receiver and antenna into a single 24mm radius waterproof enclosure weighing just 20g.
By using truFYX as the primary position source for autopilots and ADS-B, UAS designers can reduce onboard GPS count, saving vital space and weight.
