[Avionics Today 07-21-2015] Aspen Avionics and L-3 have announced an agreement to offer an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) compliant integrated system that includes the Aspen primary and multi-function displays and L-3’s Lynx NGT-9000 MultiLink Surveillance System.

The Lynx NGT-9000 is a Mode S extended squitter transponder with integrated touchscreen display and an internal GPS/WAAS that ports ADS-B traffic and weather data to the Aspen Evolution displays through an RS-232 interface. While the Lynx NGT- 9000 displays this data on its own touchscreen display, pilots now have several options to arrange data on the larger Aspen primary flight or multi-function displays — allowing them to view more information as needed.

“Aspen is exactly the type of forward-looking company we enjoy partnering with,” said Larry Riddle, L-3 Aviation Products vice president of marketing and sales for business, regional and general aviation. “What they are doing for cockpit display technology is what Lynx is doing for ADS-B technology. The entire community benefits when avionics manufacturers work together to bring integrated and affordable technologies to the cockpit.”
