Dual-band ADS-B Reception
pingStation 3 receives both ADS-B frequencies (978MHz UAT and 1090MHz) simultaneously with a single installation when most competitors are single-frequency. Don’t miss half the picture! pingStation 3 allows you to track ADS-B-equipped aircraft as far as 200+ miles away.
pingStation 3 now supports ASTERIX CAT 021 message formats, for global compatibility with air traffic management standards. Additional formats support integration with any display system or data logger.
Mode S MLAT Capable
pingStation 3 is MLAT Ready1. The internal GPS provides high-resolution timestamps for each message received. This allows a pingStation 3 sensor constellation to be used to multilaterate on Mode S transponder traffic, using time-difference-of-arrival (TDOA) to calculate aircraft positions.
1 Requires 3rd-party multilateration software
Say goodbye to difficult coax cable runs that reduce your reception performance. The all-in-one pingStation 3 includes the receiver, GPS, and antenna in an IP67 weatherproof enclosure, with power and data provided by a single Power-Over-Ethernet (POE) network cable connected right to your LAN. The quick pole-mount clamp design makes installation a snap.
pingStation 3 provides data in several formats easily integrated into any display or analytical application, including UAS Ground Control Stations, Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) Solutions, and Flight Information Displays.
