uAvionix Corp., a provider of automatic dependent surveillance – broadcast (ADS-B) solutions for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), has partnered with Robotic Skies for installation and maintenance services.
Through its global network of aircraft service centers, Robotic Skies will provide sales, installations and ongoing field support for uAvionix’s line of avionics products for commercial drones.
uAvionix develops what it calls the “world’s smallest, lightest and most affordable” ADS-B transceivers, transponders and GPS receivers. The company says it has dramatically reduced the size and cost of critical safety components required to fly UAS safely and legally in the National Airspace System (NAS). uAvionix recently announced Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) TSO C-199 approval of its FYXNAV GPS position source, which includes a receiver and antenna and provides GPS inputs to drone autopilot navigation systems and ADS-B equipment.
“As our products make their way into more complex, high-performance drone platforms that integrate into the NAS, Robotic Skies will become an increasingly important part of our sales, installation and maintenance process,” comments Christian Ramsey, vice president of business development for uAvionix. “Since all Robotic Skies service centers are FAA Part 145 repair stations, our product installation and maintenance requirements will never outgrow their qualifications or technical capabilities as UAS airworthiness standards and our market channels evolve.”
