uAvionix echoUAT - ADS-B Tranceiver for LSA & EXP

UAT ADS-B Transceiver for Light Sport and Experimental Aircraft

Overview:

The echoUAT is a remotely mounted ADS-B transceiver.  It incorporates a dual-link (1090 MHz and 978 MHz) receiver and 978 MHz UAT Class B1S transmitter.  EchoUAT features a direct wired communication for use with popular EFIS from Dynon, GRT and MGL Avionics.  An integrated Wi-Fi access point also supports many popular EFB applications on iOS and Android.

EchoUAT is designed to use the aircraft’s existing altitude encoder and ADS-B compliant GPS position source. The uAvionix SkyFYX GPS can be used in the event your EFIS manufacturer does not supply one.

A zero-install, internal wireless monitor decodes replies from legacy Mode C transponders for maximum retrofit capability.

The Echo UAT is designed to meet the performance requirements of TSO-C154c, and is compliant with FAR 91.227 for operation in the National Airspace System.

Do I have to mount a bunch of antennas on my plane exterior?

No, unlike some competitors, the echoUAT use a single UAT/1090 antenna for Transmit/Receive and Receive.  You will need to mount the UAT In/Out antenna and a GPS antenna if you do not already have a compliant GPS source.

 

Will I be able to see weather and traffic on my iFly Device or App?

Yes, the echo transmits weather and traffic on the commonly used GDL90 data format to ensure support for most iOS and Android Apps via WiFi.

 

Do I need to upgrade or replace my existing Transponder to use the echoUAT?

A. No, the echo has a built in no-install transponder monitor that works with most legacy Mode C transponders. That means no extra workload for you in the cockpit.  (It also supports direct integration with Dynon SkyView and many MGL and GRT EFIS models.)

 

Does echoUAT meet the 2020 mandate?

Yes, echo does meet the FAA’s 2020 ADS-B mandate for Experimental and Light Sport Aircraft when paired with a suitable GPS position source such as SkyFYX or a 2020 compliant GPS provided by your EFIS manufacturer.

 

Will the echo work with my Dynon Skyview?

Yes, the echoUAT can be configured directly through the Dynon Skyview display to provide:

  • Configuration of Echo through the EFIS
  • GPS data
  • Pressure Altitude Information
  • Current Transponder Squawk
  • ADS-B traffic display

 

Does my GRT EFIS support echoUAT?

Yes, the echo is designed to work with the GRT EFIS allowing the EFIS to provide:

  • Configuration of Echo through the EFIS
  • GPS data
  • Pressure Altitude Information
  • Current Transponder Squawk
  • ADS-B traffic display

 

Will the echoUAT work with my MGL EFIS?

Yes, the echo is designed to work with the MGL EFIS and has the following features:

  • Configuration of Echo through the EFIS
  • GPS data
  • Pressure Altitude Information
  • Current Transponder Squawk
  • ADS-B traffic display
