echoUAT: ADS-B Transceiver2018-11-05T11:36:20+00:00

Traffic|Weather|2020 Compliant ADS-B Out

echoUAT from uAvionix

echoUAT is a remotely mounted ADS-B transceiver that provides 2020 compliance,
traffic and weather to your EFIS and iPad for the same cost as ADS-B receive-only solutions.

For use in Light Sport and Experimental Aircraft

New life for your existing panel

While other companies are looking to cash in on the ADS-B mandate by selling you a new transponder and WAAS GPS, uAvionix is taking a different approach. echoUAT works with your existing avionics, allowing you to put your savings in the fuel tank and fly more.

  • Keep your Mode C or S transponder

  • Use your existing WAAS GPS
  • Traffic and Weather to your existing supported EFIS
  • Support for popular iPad and Android Apps

Keep your transponder

Already have a KT76A, Narco or Garmin Mode C?
With the echoUAT integrated power transcoder, there is no need to replace your existing transponder.

The power transcoder decodes squawk and pressure altitude by sensing pulses in the aircraft electrical system.

What about Apollo, Becker, Funkwerk, Microair or Terra?
Yes, those work too.

Use your existing WAAS GPS

echoUAT works with your existing WAAS GPS.  Fewer antennas to mount, less equipment to install and more value from your existing panel.

Currently supported GPS:

  • GRT Safe-Fly 2020
  • Garmin 400W series
  • Garmin 500W series
  • Garmin GTN series
  • Avidyne IFD series

FAQs

Do I have to mount a bunch of antennas on my plane exterior?2018-10-16T18:30:09+00:00

No, unlike some competitors, the echoUAT uses a single monopole antenna for Transmit and Receive.  You will need to mount the UAT In/Out antenna and a GPS antenna if you do not already have a compliant GPS source.

 

Will I be able to see weather and traffic on my preferred EFB?2018-04-02T16:38:11+00:00

Yes, the echo transmits weather and traffic on the commonly used GDL90 data format to ensure support for most iOS and Android Apps via WiFi.
