Aerobits, the manufacturer of miniature radio technology for civil and military UAVs, has released a combined ADS-B 1090ES and FLARM collision avoidance device weighing only 14 grams. The TR-1F combines a 1090ES squitter (ADS-B Out) with a FLARM system that can detect not only FLARM-equipped aircraft but also other aircraft thanks to its ADS-B In receiver.
The device does not require external devices to operate. It is equipped with a high-quality multi-GNSS receiver and a pressure sensor. The aluminum housing and ESD protection guarantee high resistance of the device to work in difficult conditions. TR1F opens the way to the safe integration of UAS into non-segregated airspace. Implementation of the Detect and Avoid algorithms facilitates the operation under BVLOS.
This release makes Aerobits the fifth manufacturer to integrate FLARM collision avoidance technology in their UAV-specific products. There are now 38 avionics manufacturers in total that offer FLARM products, all of which can be seen in the Product Selector.
