Trig Avionics brings world first
Trig Avionics’ TT26 is a multi-mission device with four fully certified products in a single box. Weighing just over 1lbs, the TT26 contains a certified Mode S transponder, ADS-B Out (TSO C166-B), certified GPS (TSO C-145), and a certified altitude encoder. Intended for serious unmanned aerial system (UAS) operations, the TT26 is certified to 70,000ft, the GPS and altimeter can be used as the primary navigation and altitude source for onboard auto-pilots – saving additional space and weight.
“The TT26 provides a totally new capability for the UAS market,” Jon Roper, a Company Executive, said. “Now operators can install a single device that provides the highest levels of surveillance compliance and is highly affordable ($4,500). The TT26 will help build solid credibility with regulators and other airspace users.”
Designed to integrate with existing and new UAS platforms, the TT26 can be embedded with onboard UAS auto-pilot technology by using industry standard RS232 and RS485 interfaces. This capability can enhance the surveillance technology of older UAS designs as a retro-fit, or to demonstrate future proof performance in the next generation of UAS designs.
The units highly efficient design means the TT26 can be accommodated adjacent to other avionics. It requires no external cooling fans and works in a wide range of temperatures.
“As the UAS industry moves closer to BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) operations, the TT26 is the right product at the right time,” Roper continued. “It gives UAS operators the means to satisfy the strictest surveillance requirements and demonstrate best practice.”
