Accord Technology, maker of NexNav products, is debuting its capabilities for enabling fully FAA compliant GPS for Detect and Avoid at the AUVSI Unmanned Systems annual convention, being held in Washington D.C. August 12-15.
Known for its certified, U.S. FAA ADS-B fully compliant GPS WAAS/SBAS sensors and receivers for NextGen solutions in the airline, business and general aviation industries, NexNav products include OEM circuit-card assembly receivers the size of a credit card as well as line replaceable sensor units.
This is the company’s first time exhibiting at the AUVSI conference.
“We are excited to be exhibiting at this show and I believe our NexNav products will fill a niche that the unmanned aircraft need,” commented Hal Adams, Chief Operating Officer for Accord Technology, LLC. “Our NexNav product already meets FAA requirements and us currently flying on many manned platforms as well as on EU UAS platforms now. I look forward to talking with attendees about the Detect and Avoid GPS solution NexNav can provide them.”
Accord Technology received TSO-C145c for its NexNav mini in 2010, and fully qualified as GPS source per the U.S. FAA ADS-B Advisory Circular 20-165. The NexNav mini GPS technology was the first GPS WAAS sensor to be authorized U.S. FAA TSO-C145c WAAS Class Beta-1 ONLY. It is a market-breaking hybrid of automotive technology and aviation requirements providing an affordable solution for ADS-B GPS source, Accord said.
