Ping1090 is the world’s smallest, lightest and most affordable full range, dual link ADS-B transceiver. At just 20 grams, it implements ‘Sense and Avoid’ for Drone operations in the national airspace. ADS-B-In on both 1090ES and 978UAT. ADS-B-Out on 1090MHz.  No deviations from the Minimum Performance Standards of DO-260B Class A0 apart from minimum transmit power.

Ping1090 is the first and only approved ECD for use on sUAS in the UK.

In short, an ECD broadcasts the host aircraft position to other aircraft operating the airspace.   EC devices turn the traditional ‘see and avoid’ concept into ‘see, BE SEEN, and avoid’.
