Universal Avionics Introduces New Upgrade Incentives to Help Operators Equip for ADS-B Out and FANS

Universal Avionics Introduces New Upgrade Incentives to Help Operators Equip for ADS-B Out and FANS

Tucson, AZ – April 7, 2015 – Universal Avionics presents two new upgrade incentive programs for the SBAS-Flight Management System (FMS) and UniLink UL-800/801 Communications Management Unit (CMU). The programs are designed to help operators follow the path to Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out and Future Air Navigation System (FANS)/Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) compliance.

Throughout 2015, operators may trade-in their qualified legacy FMS or GPS system for a new SBAS-capable Universal Avionics FMS.

ADS-B Out mandates are being planned and implemented worldwide, affecting almost all aircraft operators. Universal Avionics SBAS-FMS is an approved ARINC 743A position source, required for ADS-B Out compliance. ADS-B installations include: Universal Avionics SBAS-FMS, Extended Squitter Mode S Transponder and System Failure annunciations.

Operators that equip their aircraft with Universal Avionics SBAS-FMS also experience many other benefits such as Performance Based Navigation (PBN), larger database memory, dependable data and reliable subscription service, and access to over 3,972 LPV approaches.

In addition, the SBAS-FMS is part of Universal Avionics FANS solution. Universal Avionics' second incentive program allows operators of legacy Universal Avionics and non-Universal Avionics equipment to trade-in their existing data link system for the popular UniLink UL-800/801 CMU. For FANS/CPDLC, operators should equip with Universal Avionics SBAS-FMS, along with the UniLink UL-800/801 CMU and Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR).

Along with FANS and CPDLC capabilities, operators of the UniLink UL-800/801 CMU gain: Embedded Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Contract (ADS-C) capability, ACARS/CMU functionality, uplink forecast winds, Flight Information Services and more.
