Rockwell Collins announces a new ADS-B Out certification covering 32 unique aircraft models

Rockwell Collins is helping aircraft owners and operators meet the upcoming ADS-B Out mandate by the end of 2019 with an updated transponder and accompanying certifications

  • Upgrade path easier for many aircraft types with new approved model list supplemental type certificates (AML-STCs)
  • Part 23 available now; Part 25 available in a few months

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (Feb. 19, 2018) ﹘ Rockwell Collins’ ADS-B Out Part 23 approved model list supplemental type certificate (AML-STC) has received approval by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This path includes the latest TDR-94/94D Mode S Transponder variant to help aircraft owners meet the rapidly approaching mandate. This certification covers 32 unique aircraft models from Textron Aviation and M7 Aerospace.

Operators can determine if their aircraft qualifies by visiting www.rockwellcollins.com/ads-b and selecting their aircraft make and model in Rockwell Collins’ ADS-B Out certifications tool.

Certification for Part 25 aircraft models is underway and should be completed in a few months. Validations for both certifications are planned with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), Transport Canada and Mexico’s Directorate General of Civil Aeronautics (DGAC).

This new ADS-B Out certification pairs the newest transponder variant with either a Rockwell Collins GPS-4000S Global Positioning System Sensor or FreeFlight Systems 1203C SBAS/GNSS position source. In addition, this certification also supports VIVISUN® ADS-B FAIL annunciators with integrated ARINC 429 to discrete signal conversion capability from Applied Avionics.

The transponder’s latest improvement includes the ability to automatically generate a fixed flight ID from the Mode S code for U.S. registered aircraft. For customers that don’t have a flight ID to send from a controller, this removes the need to upgrade other parts of the avionics system to become compliant.

“With less than half the aircraft currently meeting the ADS-B Out mandate, we are doing everything we can to help remaining owners equip in the most cost effective manner possible by the end of 2019,” said Craig Olson, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins.
