All-Weather Network Ready ADS-B Receiver

Overview

PingStation is a dual band (978MHz and 1090MHz), networkable ADS-B receiver with a Power-Over-Ethernet (POE) interface enclosed in an IP67 rated protective enclosure.  PingStation provides ground, surface, or low-altitude ADS-B surveillance within line of sight of the antenna, with range dependent upon the output power of the transmitting ADS-B transceiver.  PingStation is robust enough to be permanently mounted outdoors in harsh environmental conditions and small enough to be used as a mobile asset for roaming operations. Installation is simple with included pole-mount bracket and requires a single POE cable which provides both power and data communications.  An integrated GPS provides position and precision timestamping for messaging.

Multiple PingStations may be networked together to provide a wide area low-altitude surveillance volume.  Data messages are in JSON format as described within the PingStation ICD.
