Aerobits releases combined ADS-B and FLARM collision avoidance system for drones

Aerobits, the manufacturer of miniature radio technology for civil and military UAVs, has released a combined ADS-B 1090ES and FLARM collision avoidance device weighing only 14 grams. The TR-1F combines a 1090ES squitter (ADS-B Out) with a FLARM system that can detect not only FLARM-equipped aircraft but also other aircraft thanks to its ADS-B In receiver.

The device does not require external devices to operate. It is equipped with a high-quality multi-GNSS receiver and a pressure sensor. The aluminum housing and ESD protection guarantee high resistance of the device to work in difficult conditions. TR­1F opens the way to the safe integration of UAS into non-segregated airspace. Implementation of the Detect and Avoid algorithms facilitates the operation under BVLOS.

This release makes Aerobits the fifth manufacturer to integrate FLARM collision avoidance technology in their UAV-specific products. There are now 38 avionics manufacturers in total that offer FLARM products, all of which can be seen in the Product Selector.
