ADS-B Out Retrofit Program
Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast is a precise satellite-based surveillance system. ADS-B Out uses technology to determine an aircraft's location, airspeed and other data, and broadcasts that information to a network of ground stations, which relays the data to air traffic control displays and to nearby aircraft equipped to receive the data via ADS-B In. Operators of aircraft equipped with ADS-B In can receive weather and traffic position information delivered directly to the cockpit.
FAA and EASA regulations mandate compliance by 2020 for all aircraft operating in Class A, B or C airspace. In order to meet the regulatory requirements, aircraft operating in this airspace will need to be equipped with both a WAAS enabled GPS receiver and a compliant transponder. Transponders can be either 978 MHz Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) if the aircraft operates below FL180 or a 1090 MHz Mode S Extended Squitter (1090ES) for those that operate above FL 180 (Class A airspace.)

This final rule amends FAA regulations by adding equipage requirements and performance standards for Automatic Dependent Surveillance—Broadcast (ADS–B) Out avionics on aircraft operating in Classes A, B, and C airspace, as well as certain other specified classes of airspace within the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS). … This final rule is effective on August 11, 2010. The compliance date for this final rule is January 1, 2020ADS-B Out Final Rule FAA2010-12645.pdf (433.5 KB)
AVMATS, in partnership with CMD Flight Solutions, LLC, offers ADS-B Out retrofit solutions to a large portion of the business aviation community. These solutions cover a vast range of legacy turboprop and jet aircraft including models from manufacturers such as Airbus, Beech, Boeing, Bombardier, Cessna, Diamond, Dornier, Fairchild, Falcon, Fokker, Gulfstream, Hawker, Learjet, Lockheed, Pilatus, Sabreliner, Shorts and Westwind.
This path offers an expedient and cost effective solution to the compliance requirement for ADS-B Out. The CMD Flight Solution STC's allow for existing Rockwell Collins TDR-94/TDR-94D Transponders to be upgraded or installed and paired with FreeFlight 1203C, Rockwell Collins GPS-4000S or Universal Avionics UNS-1W FMS's. In providing multiple configuration options, this compliance path can be readily adapted to your aircraft without the additional cost and time developing a "one-off" STC.
