WHAT IS LYNX?
A transponder with a color touchscreen is a great idea. But a single-unit Mode S Extended Squitter transponder with traffic, WAAS/GPS, datalink weather, and a color touchscreen display is a brilliant idea.
This is the Lynx NGT-9000. It’s a simple, certified, one-box replacement for your old transponder that delivers ADS-B compliance and a whole lot more, all for less than you might expect. You’ll get more capability for less than you’ll pay mixing and matching multiple systems.
Lynx touchscreen display technology operates similar to a Personal Electronic Device (PED). The screen’s touch and swipe sensitivity has been human engineered to work in the most demanding flight environments where turbulence or moisture may be a concern.
The Lynx NGT-9000 includes subscription-free weather data such as METARs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs and NEXRAD information overlaid on a moving map. A second map page shows Winds and Temps Aloft data. All this and the reliable addition of the Stormscope WX-500 Interface which offers the ability to map lightning data, which correlates to wind shear, turbulence and hail. This arrangement allows for the pilot to quickly page through graphical weather screens, viewing large amounts of data without overloading a single page.
The Lynx NGT-9000 offers the flexibility to display ADS-B traffic on the unit itself, as well as other panel mounted avionics and ipad and Android apps. L3’s NextGen Active Traffic is an option that can be embedded into the NGT-9000 display unit to provide an uninterrupted display of all traffic in the vicinity. Equip with both ADS-B and Active Traffic for the complete traffic picture.
All Lynx MSS models incorporate a rule compliant position source (WAAS/GPS) requiring no external GPS connections.
The Lynx NGT-9000 series provide 1090ES (Mode S Extended Squitter) ADS-B Out as well as 1090 MHz and 978 MHz (UAT) ADS-B In. This provides ADS-B traffic (ADS-B, ADS-R and TIS-B) and FIS-B input.
Airport Databases, NOTAMs, TFRs
With the Lynx family of ADS-B products, you will receive up to the minute broadcast information regarding airports, Notice to Airmen (NOTAMs) and Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) in graphical and textual form. Similar to the weather map, touching an airport or zone icon on the graphical side of NGT-9000 map brings up its corresponding textual data.
