uAvionix TAILBEACONX (Experimental)





The next era of global ADS-B. Compatible with space and ground-based ADS-B


surveillance systems, tailBeaconX is a Mode S Extended Squitter ADS-B transponder


and WAAS GPS integrated into an LED rear position light. With global compliance,


tailBeaconX is the key to limitless destinations.


Transponder Redefined


Mode S ADS-B OUT Transponder


  • Mode S + ADS-B OUT Transponder meets airspace requirements worldwide.


Integrated Certified GPS Receiver


  • tailBeaconX includes a certified SBAS GPS receiver and antenna. No additional GPS is required.


Aireon Compatible


  • The tailBeaconX with integrated dipole antenna is specifically designed to maximize


  • performance when tracked by the Aireon space-based ADS-B satellite constellation.


LED Lighting


  • The integrated 20,000 hour rated LED position light ensures the tailBeaconX draws less


  • power than your old incandescent bulb.


Think Outside the Airframe


tailBeaconX is the world’s first transponder designed as a rear position light replacement.


The 1090MHz Mode S ADS-B OUT transponder satisfies the requirements for all existing


and inevitable ADS-B regulations worldwide, especially those leveraging space-based


ADS-B. Fly knowing no matter your destination, tailBeaconX will keep your aircraft connected.


World-Wide Coverage


tailBeaconX embraces the future, providing precision ADS-B data to the Aireon satellite


network without the need for diversity antennas. When it comes to terra firma,


tailBeaconX also exceeds the performance of traditional panel installed transponders


that use belly mount antennas.


Less Ground Time – Easiest Install


tailBeaconX mounts in place of your existing rear position light. The GPS, space-based, and ground-based


antennas are integrated in to the lens housing. No new holes or pentetration of pressure vessels


are required making tailBeaconX the lowest-hassle easiest install period.


More Than A Mandate


The AV-20-E and AV-30-E have been upgraded to include transponder control functionality! The


tailBeaconX combined with the AV-30-E or AV-20-E multiplies your cockpit functionality while future-


proofing your ADS-B system to meet current and inevitable mandates worldwide.
