truFYX EXT

Mission Integrity

An aircraft is only as reliable as the weakest link. Many operators invest a fortune into equipment to ensure a stable system but are forced to settle for a consumer-level GPS source.  truFYX-EXT brings the same aviation integrity and design assurance found in our TSO Certified truFYX in an external-mounted option to support all aircraft types.

Safe for Passenger Operations

truFYX EXT is an externally-mounted GPS Position Source that brings the heritage of aviation-grade standards and reliability found in the TSO-Certified truFYX GPS to even more airframe configurations. Leveraging the same advanced fault detection and exclusion technology trusted by over 20,000+ manned aircraft – truFYX EXT ensures your autopilot and ADS-B systems are only using the highest integrity data available.  

Performance Based Navigation (PBN)

PBN is the art, science, and engineering of an aircraft’s ability to navigate using performance standards and understanding with complete confidence the amount of trust you can place on the calculated position. Don’t trust your mission to an unknown. Navigate with confidence.

Integrity = Trust

It’s 9 PM, do you know where your drone is? Do you know you can trust the position your GPS is reporting? An aviation-grade GPS with integrity like truFYX delivers not only accuracy but also integrity metrics that inform you just how trusted its calculation is. Integrity does not exist in an off-the-shelf commercial GPS.

Resistance

truFYX provides increased resistance to GPS constellation errors through receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM) and fault detection and exclusion (FDE) which automatically monitors the health of the satellite constellation and removes any suspect satellites from the position calculation. Enhanced accuracy is achieved through optional ionospheric corrections.

Certified Aviation Grade Technology

truFYX is the only TSO certified GPS developed for UAS BVLOS and Type Certification requirements at the core of the design. truFYX is certified to TSO-C145e, developed to DO-178 and DO-254, and tested to DO-160G environmental standards. truFYX is critical and reliable component of your UAS platform.

Designed for Any Mission

Would you bet your aircraft on a cellphone GPS?  truFYX EXT is the only GPS source for all missions and conditions. Developed to DO-178 and DO-254, tested to DO-160G environmental standards, and manufactured in an FAA production-approved facility, truFYX EXT is entirely different from consumer-grade GPS.
