Flight Management System

Is my Universal Avionics Flight Management System (FMS) a compatible sensor for my upgraded Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) capable transponder?

The minimum FMS software requirement is Software Control Number (SCN) 1000.5 / 1100.5 and subsequent for the Honeywell transponder, or SCN 1000.7 and subsequent for Rockwell Collins TDR-94 transponder. These FMS SCN versions are found in Universal Avionics SBAS-FMS product line.
