Event 38 Unmanned Systems has signed a collaborative agreement with uAvionix, the company announced on 6 March.

Under the agreement, Event 38 will resell and integrate uAvionix’s ADS-B products with its aircraft. uAvionix’s products will be available on all Event 38 long endurance aircraft starting with the E384-Heavy and E400.

UAS and manned aircraft equipped with uAvionix ADS-B transceivers can track each other electronically while in flight. The transceivers, such as the Ping2020, can receive and transmit information about air traffic including location, altitude and speed. The Ping series can detect ADS-B messages from aircraft up to 100 miles away.

When an uAvionix’s ADS-B transceiver is integrated with an Event 38 UAS, operators can see the locations of manned air traffic overlaid directly on their ground station display. This capability improves both operator and pilot situational awareness. This risk mitigation tool may also increase the chance of being approved for Part 107 waivers such as high altitude and beyond line of site (BLOS) operations, depending on the location and airspace of the operation.

This added ADS-B capability will strengthen Event 38 aircrafts' ability to carry out long range mapping for extended visual line of site and BLOS operations.

Event 38 will carry all of uAvionix’s products for UAS, including Ping2020, Ping1090, Ping200S(r) transponders, and PingUSB.
