Mode S ADS-B OUT Transponder
Mode S + ADS-B OUT Transponder meets airspace requirements worldwide.
Integrated Certified GPS Receiver
tailBeaconX includes a certified SBAS GPS receiver and antenna. No additional GPS is
The tailBeaconX with integrated dipole antenna is specifically designed to maximize performance when tracked
by the Aireon space-based ADS-B satellite constellation.
The integrated 20,000 hour rated LED position light ensures the tailBeaconX draws less power than your old
Think Outside the Airframe
tailBeaconX is the world’s first transponder designed as a rear position light replacement. The 1090MHz Mode S ADS-B OUT transponder
satisfies the requirements for all existing and inevitable ADS-B regulations worldwide, especially those leveraging space-based ADS-B. Fly
knowing no matter your destination, tailBeaconX will keep your aircraft connected.
tailBeaconX embraces the future, providing precision ADS-B data to the Aireon satellite network without the need for diversity antennas.
When it comes to terra firma, tailBeaconX also exceeds the performance of traditional panel installed transponders that use belly mount
Less Ground Time Easiest Install
tailBeaconX mounts in place of your existing rear position light. The GPS, space-based, and ground-based antennas are integrated in to
the lens housing. No new holes or penetration of pressure vessels are required making tailBeaconX the lowest-hassle easiest install
tailBeaconX only requires serial control to the rear position light location. No new antennas to
mount, no new holes in the airframe. The cost and complexity of the tailBeaconX installation is minimal.
Other Diversity Transponders
A traditional diversity installation requires three seperate antennas. The GPS
antenna and transponder antennas are typically not included increasing cost. Each antenna requires a separate coaxial run. In most
cases, the entire aircraft interior must be removed to complete the installation. Labor for the installation typically exceeds the cost
of the equipment.
Looking to the Future
ailBeaconX is the first commercially available avionics solution developed with the needs of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) in mind. Electric
Vertical Take Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft, powered by batteries and alternative fuels, require radically different solutions than
those that exist today. tailBeaconX weighs only 90 grams, takes no critical volume from an internal avionics bay, incorporates its own
antennas, and draws only 3 watts of power. This results in longer flight times and higher payload capacity for the next generation of
Instant Setup and Configuration
Mechanically installing tailBeaconX is the first easy step. With uAvionix’s mobile app, configuration is just as simple. Our mobile
application (available for both Apple iOS and Android) guides your installer through setting the necessary values including the ICAO
address, emitter type, aircraft length, width and GPS offsets.
More than a Mandate
The AV-20-E and AV-30-E have been upgraded to include transponder control functionality! The tailBeaconX combined with the AV-30-E or
AV-20-E multiplies your cockpit functionality while future-proofing your ADS-B system to meet current and inevitable mandates worldwide.
