PingStation ADS-B receiver
PingStation is a dual-band (978MHz and 1090MHz), network-compatible ADS-B receiver with a Power-Over-Ethernet (POE) interface, which is contained in a protective housing IP67. PingStation offers ground, surface or low-size ADS-B surveillance in line of sight of the antenna, the range depending on the output power of the transmitting ADS-B transceiver. PingStation is robust enough to be permanently installed outdoors in harsh environmental conditions and small enough to be used as a mobile asset for roaming operations. Installation is easy with the included mast mount and requires a single POE cable that provides both power and data communication. An integrated GPS provides position and precision time stamps for messaging.
Multiple ping stations can be networked together to provide a wide area with low altitude monitoring volume. Data messages are available in JSON or Compressed VRS.
