Sagetech is pleased to introduce a new transponder to be
released in the 4th quarter of 2010. Having designed the (then) world's
smallest Mode C transponder for the Insitu ScanEagle UAV, this new
design (XPST Mode S
) is even smaller and uses less power.
The XPST-9509-01-1 is a full featured Mode-S Transponder certified for use in the US and Europe. It will also be offered in a Mode C variant. It features an integrated encoding altimeter, is smaller than a deck of playing cards, and consumes less than 3 watts of electrical power from a 10V to 35V DC supply. This device represents the state of the art in miniaturization and is well suited for applications where size and weight are critical, such as in small UAV's.
- Includes an altitude encoding altimeter.
- Supports ELS, EHS, and can be used as an ADS-B receiver via extended squitter.
- Available with or without a control head (used in manned aircraft),
- Suitable for use up to 15,000 feet.
I can't wait to get one for my FunJet !!!
