FreeFlight System introduces next generation 1201C SBAS/GNSS sensor for general aviation aircraft

October 10, 2017 - IRVING, Texas - NextGen avionics leader FreeFlight Systems introduced today its Model 1201C SBAS/GNSS sensor. As an ADS-B rule-compliant position source, the 1201C SBAS/GNSS sensor meets the rigorous performance requirements of GPS certification. The 1201C has been designed to replace the very successful 1201, the first SBAS/GNSS sensor to ever receive FAA TSO authorization.

Small, lightweight, attractively priced, and easily installed, the 1201C integrates with existing Mode S Extended Squitter transponders to enable compliance with ADS-B Out equipage requirements prior to the Federal Aviation Administration's January 1, 2020 ADS-B deadline. Approved for all ICAO jurisdictions worldwide, the remote-mount system also interfaces with compatible, certified ADS-B In receivers for viewing ADS-B weather and traffic information on tablet devices and multifunction displays.

The 1201C SBAS/GNSS sensor meets ADS-B and RNP accuracy, integrity, and availability requirements worldwide. It also supports oceanic and domestic, enroute, terminal, non-precision approaches, and departure operations. Along with the 1203C, it is part of FreeFlight Systems' robust and reliable SBAS/GNSS sensors available for all aircraft types.

"Our new 1201C sensor is a great example of the modularity of our ADS-B systems," said Pete Ring, FreeFlight Systems' Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Whether aircraft operators and installers need a key sensor like the 1201C or a complete ADS-B system, our broad line of solutions offer all aircraft types affordable and practical ADS-B compliance."

As the 2020 deadline quickly approaches, pilots and flight departments need devices that deliver the maximum degree of flexibility to achieve ADS-B compliance. FreeFlight Systems is committed to supporting integration of our devices with multiple manufacturer's products that are available in the market today. FreeFlight Systems' line of SBAS/GNSS sensors offer high-performance, affordable solutions for all categories of aircraft flying around the world.
