Victor’s Vectors: Looking Ahead to ADS-B


With the recent presidential inauguration, I feel a lot of optimism in the air from our customers.  People are looking more to the future and thinking of the great things that are to come.  Well, Garmin is looking to the future too.  We foresee aircraft that are small and large with real time traffic, weather, and unprecedented access and ease of use for the National Airspace System.  This is no daydream.  These are the promises of Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B).  Garmin recently announced the availability of an upgrade program for the GTX 330 and GTX 33 transponders that will add the Extended Squitter capabilities.  These new transponders will interface with current 400W / 500W series units, the 480, and G1000 systems and transmit your position, velocity, and heading information to FAA ground facilities and other ADS-B equipped aircraft.  This technology is a proposed mandate for aircraft by 2020, but why look to the future when you can act today?
