The NextGen Transponder

The NXTs are DO-260B (FAA) and DO-181E (EASA) compliant to meet the global Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) mandates for aircraft that are required to have ADS-B Out capability. These light-weight NXTs transmit ADS-B Out data from your aircraft to other nearby aircraft and Air Traffic Control (ATC). The higher level of ADS-B Out (DO-260B) transmission includes precise flight data, including position, speed and intent of the aircraft.

The NXT transponders are optimized for flight in the next generation air traffic environment and contribute to reductions in flight delays and fuel consumption. ACSS transponders are installed on thousands of aircraft worldwide. The NXTs are form factor replacements to the highly successful XS-950 Air Transport Data Link (ATDL) transponder and the RCZ-852 for Business Jets, Regionals and Helicopters. The NXT-700™ is designed as a form-fit replacement for a ¼ ATR Short installation.

The NXTs are ICAO Level III transponders, delivering the latest functionality required for ICAO ACAS II mandate compliance; European Elementary Surveillance (ELS) and Enhanced Mode S Surveillance (EHS), Downlink of Aircraft Parameters (DAPs) and ADS-B 1090ES extended squitter.

Software upgrades to the NXT are performed through on-board software loads, providing operators with significant cost savings and scheduling flexibility. High reliability of our Mode S transponders greatly enhances the overall surveillance system by reducing Mode S transponder-induced TCAS no-fault-found failures.

ADS-B/NextGen Avionics

ADS-B / NextGen AvionicsAs part of ACSS’ mission to provide avionics that enhance safety, situational awareness and efficiency, ACSS has led the industry in the development of avionics based on Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) technology. ADS-B is the cornerstone technology for the NextGen air traffic management system.

In addition to Mode S Transponders that transmit precise ADS-B Out position, speed and intent data to nearby aircraft and ATC, ACSS has a suite of SafeRoute® ADS-B In applications. They include SafeRoute-Interval Management, In- Trail Procedures (ITP), CDTI Assisted Visual Separation (CAVS) and Surface Area Movement Management (SAMM). SafeRoute capability is an option available in the TCAS 3000SP platform.
