uAvionix products receive approval from India’s DGCA

5th April 2019 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


uAvionix’s products for UAS have been accepted by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) of India for use within Indian-controlled airspace, the company announced on 1 April.

In August 2018, the DGCA issued its requirements for the operation of civil UAS, including the requirement that all RPAS weighing more than 2kg intending to operate in controlled airspace up to 400ft be equipped with a secondary surveillance radar Mode C or S transponder, or ADS-B OUT transmitter. The aircraft also had to be equipped with detect and avoid capability.

uAvionix's ping20S low power Mode S ES ADS-B transponder and pingRX ADS-B receiver for Air Traffic Control interoperability and detect and avoid functionality will help provide these capabilities. The ping20S weighs 25gm and allows the UAS it is installed on to respond to interrogations from ATC SSRs and nearby aircraft equipped with traffic collision avoidance systems.
