[Avionics Today 01-07-2014] Garmin International has received the certification of an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out solution for the Gulfstream G150 midsize jet. The Garmin GTX 3000 Mode S Extended Squitter (ES) remote transponder and GDL 88 ADS-B data link combine to fulfill global ADS-B Out requirements while meeting the demands of business and transport category aircraft.

Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) and Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) position information provided by the GDL 88 is used by the GTX 3000 to broadcast DO-260B compliant aircraft identity, state and intent data to Air Traffic Control (ATC), while integrating with existing equipment such as Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS) and transponder controllers.

“We are honored to partner with an industry leader such as Gulfstream, to provide the G150 business jet with an all-inclusive ADS-B solution that gives operators an immediate path to compliance,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “Gulfstream’s recent STC adds to Garmin’s portfolio of certified ADS-B installations, allowing business and transport category operators to continue operations in regions around the world where ADS-B is required.”
