Aspen ADS-B Update

16 Mar 2015

Aspen Avionics announced today that initial ATX100 and ATX100G ADS-B solutions are now certified.

The Aspen ATX100G is available now for immediate shipment. Due to delayed certification of alternate GPS sources specified by Aspen to their supplier, the ATX100 will be available as soon as that certification is received. They expect this certification very soon

Critical Note:

Some non-Aspen branded certified ADS-B solutions may technically interface with an Aspen EFD Pro and/or MFD but will require a display software unlock of up to $2,000 list price to display and control properly on the PFD and/or MFD.

The unlock is unnecessary when using the ATX100 and ATX100G with Aspen displays. The Aspen PFD will act as the controller for ADS-B functions.

Aspen’s ATX100 and ATX100G single-band ADS-B transceivers receive and transmit on 978 MHz Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) frequency.

· ATX100 – ADS-B transceiver provides an ADS-B solution for aircraft equipped with a Mode A/C transponder and a WAAS GPS navigation receiver. Receives ADS-B subscription-free weather, traffic and meets ADS-B Out mandate below 18,000 feet. The ATX100 single-band transceiver retails for $3,495

· ATX100G – ADS-B transceiver with internal WAAS GPS sensor provides a solution for aircraft equipped with a Mode A/C transponder without a compatible WAAS GPS navigation receiver. Receives ADS-B subscription-free weather, traffic and meets ADS-B out mandate below 18,000 feet. The ATX100G single-band transceiver with GPS retails for $4,995
