FreeFlight Systems Adds Support For GRT Avionics Panel-Mounted EFIS Displays To XPLORER ADS-B Receiver

XPLORER Combines Performance, Upgradeability With GRT Avionics Advanced Systems for Experimental Aircraft

Waco, TX, October 11, 2012 -­‐-­‐ FreeFlight Systems announced today that it will integrate its XPLORER ADS-­‐B weather receiver with GRT Avionics Horizon HXr, Horizon HX and Sport SX panel-­‐mounted Electronic Flight Information Systems (EFIS) for experimental and Light Sport aircraft.

Permanently mounted in the aircraft with an external antenna for unimpeded broadcast data reception, the XPLORER ADS-­‐B receiver is based on FreeFlight Systems’ certified RANGR family of 978MHz UAT ADS-­‐B systems. The XPLORER system receives the full ADS-­‐B datalink broadcast that includes textual and graphical weather.

While the XPLORER receiver connects to an iPad display via WiFi, it uses a standard wired RS-­‐232 serial port to integrate with the GRT Avionics systems.
