ASHEBORO, NORTH CAROLINA, AUGUST 21, 2012 - SkyVision Xtreme, LLC announced today the release of its SkyVision Portable, a fully transportable ADS-B transceiver system, with integrated Appliance, for use with iOS, Android, and Windows devices with Wi-Fi capability. The SkyVision Portable includes Xtreme Vision display software to provide the same Synthetic Traffic™ display (patent-pending) that pilots have learned to trust for intuitive situational awareness from SkyVision Xtreme.
SkyVision Portable is squarely aimed at flight schools, renters, and those wishing to wait to permanently install ADS-B in their aircraft. SkyVision Portable includes a UAT transceiver and an Xtreme Vision Appliance, which uses Wi-Fi to transmit the Xtreme Vision display software to any Wi-Fi capable iOS, Android, or Windows display in the cockpit. Also included are a suction-cup mounted UAT antenna, a GPS antenna, and a power plug. The system is bundled in a briefcase-type enclosure that comes pre-wired and ready for flight.
SkyVision Portable utilizes the NavWorx ADS600-B, a Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) that meets the FAA’s 2020 ADS-B mandate for ADS-B In/Out. The ADS600-B offers pilots the opportunity to later permanently install the unit. The form factor of the system is similar to that of a briefcase and can be easily stored during flight. The complete system requires only three wires to be run during use, including two antennas and power to a 12/24V cigarette lighter plug. All wires, antennas and equipment are stored in the case for transport. The Xtreme Vision Appliance is capable of sending the Xtreme Vision software display simultaneously to multiple iPads, Android, and/or Windows devices. The connection is made via Wi-Fi, so there are no additional cables, nor are there any connectivity or multi-user charges commonly found in the software industry.
ADS-B is the next generation technology for air traffic surveillance and control. SkyVision Xtreme has been producing ADS-B solutions since 2009, delivering on the advantages of the technology as it exists today, and providing a step into the future when it will be both universally accepted and mandated.
SkyVision Xtreme co-founder Harry Sanders stated, “The addition of SkyVision Portable to our line of products further emphasizes our commitment to providing pilots with everything that ADS-B offers. This is the first system that can be taken from aircraft to aircraft that gives pilots reliable access to all ADS-B traffic as well as subscription-free weather.”
The SkyVision Portable with 3D ADS-B display (patent pending) is available today, from SkyVision Xtreme. For additional details, contact SkyVision Xtreme at 1842 Back Creek Court, Asheboro, NC 27205, 336-465-0564; or visit us online at www.skyvisionxtreme.com.
