The PingRX ADS-B Traffic Receiver for UAS Sense and Avoid is the world’s only dual-frequency ADS-B traffic receiver for UAS Sense and Avoid. At just 5 grams, pingRX receives position reports from surrounding aircraft and displays them to the UAS pilot.
Increased awareness and safe operations are not limited to one platform. pingRX communicates by MAVLINK to a number of autopilots, including Ardupilot based systems like pixhawk, cubepilot, and PX4. An integration guide is available to develop pingRX support for any autopilot.
ADS-B is the foundation of the next generation airspace. After January 1, 2020, all manned aircraft operating in controlled airspace in the U.S. will be equipped with ADS-B Out.
ADS-B allows aircraft to broadcast their position and course information in real-time, this makes pingRX the most effective and cost-effective Sense and Avoid solution for UAS.
Sense: pingRX receives nearby aircraft ADS-B positions automatically. This data is relayed through the autopilot to the remote pilot and aircraft positions are displayed on the Ground Control Station (GCS)
Assess: pingRX continues to update the remote pilot with threat aircraft position and course in real-time. The remote pilot assesses the threat of the intruder breaking the Well Clear threshold.
Avoid: The remote pilot analyzes the threat and moves to remain Well Clear.
