uAvionix Corporation, the leading Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) avionics solution provider, announced the introduction of PingStation™ – an all-weather, networkable ADS-B receiver for low and high altitude aircraft surveillance. PingStation is robust enough to be permanently mounted outdoors in harsh environmental conditions and small enough to be used as a mobile asset for roaming operations.
By integrating the PingStation receiver with the IRIS UAS display, the two companies hope to create a portable and inexpensive solution that would dramatically increase the safety of commercial drone flight operations – especially when operating beyond visual line-of-sight.
Performance Based Navigation (PBN) can help the UAS industry both measure and qualify the navigation capabilities of unmanned vehicles as we move towards operations over people, beyond line of sight and closer to the integration of our airspace.
Christian Ramsey of uAvionix shares thoughts on the use of low-power ADS-B to improve safety and protect the integrity of the National Airspace System.

The skies of the future are going to be busy – with a mixture of manned and unmanned vehicles sharing increasingly crowded skies. Whether it’s Amazon Prime Air, ZipLine, or a professional cinematographer with a DJI drone high in the sky, there are going to be more things flying in this “integrated” airspace than ever before.
The U.K's Civil Aviation Authority has granted approval for use of the Ping 1090 and Echo ATT-20B under the new Electronic Conspicuity program.
