The next era of global ADS-B. Compatible with space and ground-based ADS-B surveillance systems, tailBeaconX is a Mode S Extended Squitter ADS-B transponder and WAAS GPS integrated into an LED rear position light. With global compliance, tailBeaconX is the key to limitless destinations.
Think Outside the AirframetailBeaconX is the world’s first transponder designed as a rear position light replacement. The 1090MHz 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.
World-Wide CoveragetailBeaconX embraces the future, providing precision ADS-B data to the Aireon satellite network without the need for diversity antennas. When it comes to terra firma, tailBeaconX also exceeds the performance of traditional panel installed transponders that use belly mount antennas.
Less Ground Time - Easiest InstalltailBeaconX 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 pentetration of pressure vessels are required making tailBeaconX the lowest-hassle easiest install period.
More Than A MandateThe AV-20-E and AV-30-E have been upgraded to include transponder control functionality! The tailBeaconX combined with the AV-30-E or AV-20-E multiplies your cockpit functionality while future-proofing your ADS-B system to meet current and inevitable mandates worldwide.
tailBeaconX-EXP can be controlled by either an EFIS, the uAvionix AV-20-E or AV-30-E. The AV-30-E is a 3-inch feature-rich EFIS display, and the AV-20-E is a 2-inch multi-function display. Bundles are available with each of these units. Additionally, the following EFIS displays have the capability to send barometric pressure altitude data and control the mode and squawk functions of the tailBeaconX through any available RS-232 serial output:
