Systems and Becker


Expand Offering for TCAS II Equipped Aircraft


FreeFlight Systems’ and digital avionics


leader Becker’s teaming has expanded to offer a complete ADS-B Solution for business and commercial class aircraft for TCAS II equipped aircraft. By combining the strength and integrity of the Becker BXT6500 series of Mode S transponders with FreeFlight Systems 1203C SBAS/GNSS sensor and RANGR-RX ADS-B Receiver, these remote-mounted solutions provide turboprop and turbojet business TCAS II and non-TCAS II equipped aircraft a complete and cost-effective way to equip with ADS-B In and Out for the upcoming USA January 1, 2020 mandate.


The Becker BXT6500 family’s latest version Mode S transponder, designed specifically for full interoperability with existing TCAS II systems, also is ADS-B compliant. The BXT Mode S transponder provides a much-needed alternative to traditional Mode S suppliers in regional airline TCAS II operations, as well as any place TCAS II systems are in use such as business jets and air transport operations, both civil and military.


“USA ADS-B compliance, with the 1 January 2020 mandate firmly in place, is still lagging behind retrofit objectives in the business aircraft market because until now there was still a lack of cost- effective, high-quality options for the business aircraft market,” said Pete Ring, FreeFlight Systems’ vice president of sales and marketing. “Through our partnership with Becker Avionics, aircraft operators can now purchase a cost-effective option to equip their TCAS II and non-TCAS II aircraft without the need to completely overhaul their panel and avionics systems. This is an ideal solution for many of our customers where a non-disruptive remote mounted option is preferred.”


“Once more, Becker is leading the industry with its TCAS II compatible, ADS-B compliant Mode S transponder, and in the same small form factor as the field proven BXT6513 ADS-B


compliant Mode S,” said Armando Gessinger, Becker Director, Sales & Marketing. “Our very affordable BXT Mode S family fills the need in USA market and provides a path to worldwide ADS-B compliance as other countries and regions adopt ADS-B ATC surveillance,” said Armando Gessinger, Becker’s director of sales and marketing. “We are pleased to team with FreeFlight Systems to offer a complete solution for these operators, including transponder, GNSS source, and ADS-B In receiver certified as a complete package.”
