Rockwell Collins announces ADS-B Out STC for 32 aircraft

Rockwell Collins logoRockwell Collins’ ADS-B Out Part 23 approved model list supplemental type certificate (AML-STC) has received approval by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

This path includes the latest TDR-94/94D Mode S Transponder variant to help aircraft owners meet the rapidly-approaching mandate.

The certification covers 32 unique aircraft models from Textron Aviation and M7 Aerospace.

Operators can determine if their aircraft qualifies by visiting http://www.rockwellcollins.com/ads-b and selecting their aircraft make and model in Rockwell Collins’ ADS-B Out certifications tool.

Certification for Part 25 aircraft models is under way and should be completed in a few months. Validations for both certifications are planned with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), Transport Canada and Mexico’s Directorate General of Civil Aeronautics (DGAC).

This new ADS-B Out certification pairs the newest transponder variant with either a Rockwell Collins GPS-4000S Global Positioning System Sensor or FreeFlight Systems 1203C SBAS/GNSS position source.

In addition, this certification also supports VIVISUN ADS-B FAIL annunciators with integrated ARINC 429 to discrete signal conversion capability from Applied Avionics.

The transponder’s latest improvement includes the ability to automatically generate a fixed flight ID from the Mode S code for U.S. registered aircraft. For customers that don’t have a flight ID to send from a controller, this removes the need to upgrade other parts of the avionics system to become compliant.

“With less than half the aircraft currently meeting the ADS-B Out mandate, we are doing everything we can to help remaining owners equip in the most cost-effective manner possible by the end of 2019,” said Craig Olson, Vice President and General Manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins.
