ADS-B In/Out Transponder and Display System

Description

Simple, affordable and highly flexible solutions for general aviation and helicopters.

Our patented Lynx family of ADS-B transponders goes well beyond the capabilities of a typical system by offering an array of new-generation features and capabilities. Unlike other ADS-B solutions, the Lynx has a full-color split touchscreen where pilots can see their ADS-B traffic on the left and then weather, terrain, and active traffic on the right side. With a simple swipe of the finger, pilots can easily scroll through a variety of screens, including weather and traffic from the FAA (FIS-B & TIS-B) in real-time. FIS-B weather data includes METARs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, and NEXRAD, and is displayed on a moving map showing their ownship position. Additionally, if pilots are equipped with a Stormscope WX-500, they can also display lightning with the Lynx unit.

Features

  • 978 / 1090 MHz Dual-band receiver provides traffic and weather
  • Patented L3Harris Lynx Tail provides flight ID, aircraft type and the ground speed of other ADS-B traffic
  • Intuitive full-color, touchscreen interface optimized for cockpit environments
  • Full-color moving maps
  • Full-color graphical and textual weather displays

Intuitive Touchscreen

Lynx touchscreen display technology operates similar to a Personal Electronic Device (PED). The screen’s touch and swipe sensitivity has been human engineered to work in the most demanding flight environments where turbulence or moisture may be a concern.

Weather

The Lynx NGT-9000 includes subscription-free weather data such as METARs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs and NEXRAD information overlaid on a moving map. A second map page shows Winds and Temps Aloft data. All this and the reliable addition of the Stormscope WX-500 Interface which offers the ability to map lightning data, which correlates to wind shear, turbulence and hail. This arrangement allows for the pilot to quickly page through graphical weather screens, viewing large amounts of data without overloading a single page.

Traffic

The Lynx NGT-9000 offers the flexibility to display ADS-B traffic on the unit itself, as well as other panel mounted avionics and iPad and Android apps. L3Harris’ NextGen Active Traffic is an option that can be embedded into the NGT-9000 display unit to provide an uninterrupted display of all traffic in the vicinity. Equip with both ADS-B and Active Traffic for the complete traffic picture.

Embedded WAAS/GPS

All Lynx MSS models incorporate a rule compliant position source (WAAS/GPS) requiring no external GPS connections.

Airport Databases, NOTAMs, TFRs

With the Lynx family of ADS-B products, you will receive up to the minute broadcast information regarding airports, Notice to Airmen (NOTAMs) and Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) in graphical and textual form. Similar to the weather map, touching an airport or zone icon on the graphical side of NGT-9000 map brings up its corresponding textual data.

ADS-B In/Out

The Lynx NGT-9000 series provide 1090ES (Mode S Extended Squitter) ADS-B Out as well as 1090 MHz and 978 MHz (UAT) ADS-B In. This provides ADS-B traffic (ADS-B, ADS-R and TIS-B) and FIS-B input.

Optional ADS-B Traffic Advisory System (ATAS)

Optional ADS-B Traffic Advisory System (ATAS) aural alerting announces the range, bearing and relative altitude of intruder aircraft through the cockpit audio system. Pilots will hear warnings such as “Traffic, Traffic, 3 O’Clock High, 2 Miles.” The ATAS option adds this audio capability to ADS-B Traffic on any NGT-9000 model and visual indication of the alerted traffic appears on the NGT-9000 display. Unlike older alerting systems, the Lynx ATAS feature provides alerting for aircraft flying at any altitude, including airport pattern traffic below 500’ AGL.

Optional TERRAINVISION™ OR eTAWS

TerrainVision helps pilots get an accurate lay of the land by providing color-coded depictions of the surrounding topography and land-based obstacles. It is an economical solution for fixed-wing and helicopter platforms where terrain reference is desired, but aural and graphical alerting are not required.

The Lynx Class B embedded Terrain Awareness Warning System (eTAWS) option provides terrain alerting through both graphic and aural warnings. The color-coded terrain screen surveys out to 24 nmi and will alert when a Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) is imminent. Alerts for Negative Climb Rates and other Ground Proximity Warnings (GPWS) are also included with Lynx eTAWS.

The one-for-all, all-in-one

Lynx NGT-9000 provides ADS-B traffic and weather and features its own internal WAAS/GPS. The flexibility of this advanced system includes:

  • ARINC 429, RS-232 and RS-422 output for easy interfacing with panel displays
  • Wi-Fi capability enables pilots to view ADS-B traffic and weather on iOS® and Android® devices through available apps
  • Optional Class B embedded Terrain Awareness Warning System (eTAWS)
  • Optional Air Traffic Alerting System (ATAS) provides aural alerting of ADS-B traffic, including the position of intruder aircraft
