Goof-Proof Configuration

Mechanically installing an ADS-B solution is only half the battle. The skyBeacon mobile application can also be used to configure tailBeacon. The intuitive, easy to use app guides you through setting the necessary values including the ICAO address, emitter type, aircraft length, width and GPS offsets. Since tailBeacon is self-contained there are no serial ports settings or protocols to configure.

The skyBeacon mobile application is available for both Apple iOS and Android.

tailBeacon is very similar to skyBeacon and combines:

  • Barometric Pressure Altitude Sensor
  • LED tail position lights
