TailBeaconX-EXP, All-In-One Nav / ADS-B OUT
tailBeaconX is the next era of global ADS-B. Compatible with surface and space-based ADS-B surveillance systems, tailBeaconX is a Mode S Extended Squitter ADS-B transponder and aviation GPS integrated into an LED rear position light. With global compliance, tailBeaconX is the key to limitless destinations.
Mode S ADS-B OUT Transponder
Mode S + ADS-B OUT Transponder meets airspace requirements worldwide.
Integrated Certified GPS Receiver
tailBeaconX includes a certified SBAS GPS receiver and antenna. No additional GPS is required.
The tailBeaconX with integrated dipole antenna is specifically designed to maximize performance when
tracked by the Aireon space-based ADS-B satellite constellation.
The integrated 20,000 hour rated LED position light ensures the tailBeaconX draws less power than your
old incandescent bulb.
tailBeaconX is the world’s first transponder designed as a rear position light replacement. The 1090 MHz Mode S ADS-B OUT transponder satisfies the requirements for all existing and inevitable ADS-B regulations worldwide, especially those leveraging space-based ADS-B. Fly knowing no matter your destination, tailBeaconX will keep your aircraft connected.
tailBeaconX mounts in place of your existing rear position light. The GPS, space-based, and ground-based antennas are integrated in to the lens housing. No new holes or penetration of pressure vessels are required making tailBeaconX the lowest-hassle easiest install period.
tailBeaconX only requires serial control to the rear position light location. No new antennas to mount, no new holes in the airframe. The cost and complexity of the tailBeaconX installation is minimal.
A traditional diversity installation requires three separate antennas. The GPS antenna and transponder antennas are typically not included increasing cost. Each antenna requires a separate coaxial run.
Mechanically installing tailBeaconX is the first easy step. With uAvionix’s mobile app, configuration is just as simple. Our mobile application (available for both Apple iOS and Android) guides your installer through setting the necessary values including the ICAO address, emitter type, aircraft length, width and GPS offsets.
