SkyEcho 2 is the world’s smallest portable ADS-B transceiver. At just 120 grams, it implements ‘See, BE SEEN, and Avoid’ for aircraft in the United Kingdom National Airspace. ADS-B Out on 1090ES and ADS-B In on 978MHz UAT and 1090MHz.
SkyEcho 2 receives Weather, Flight Information Services (FIS) and Traffic Information Services (TIS) over 978MHz UAT where available.
SkyEcho 2 also includes a dual-band ADS-B receiver to receive position reports from other ADS-B equipped aircraft and display them on in-flight applications, including ForeFlight Mobile, SkyDemon, and EasyVFR.
Ready for the Future
The United Kingdom is testing and implementing in-flight weather and other services over UAT (978MHz). SkyEcho comes ready for the future with a built in 978MHz ADS-B receiver so you can benefit from this new service.
SkyEcho 2 receives in-flight weather from UAT ground stations. Weather data includes radar, winds METARS, TAFs and more
CAP-1391 allows light aircraft, gliders and balloons to see and be seen by other aircraft without equipping a traditional transponder. SkyEcho 2 is approved for use in:
In more detail:
SkyEcho 2 is a portable ADS-B receive and transmit solution. The 1090MHz transmitter has a 20W nominal output. Transmit functionality can be enabled/disabled from the configuration page.
The ADS-B receive capability includes both 1090MHz and 978MHz UAT for display of live traffic and weather from the uAvionix UAT in the UK trial system.
Portable ADS-B transmit capability is currently only approved for use in the United Kingdom under CAP1391.
SkyEcho includes a TSO-C199 GPS transmitting a Source Integrity Level (SIL) value of 1. SIL values of one (1) enable certified avionics, TCAS, and ATC to process and display your aircraft position. Aircraft using uncertified sources transmitting SIL of zero (0) are typically discarded and not displayed by the avionics or ATC displays. The high-integrity, SBAS GPS with Fault Detection and Exclusion (FDE) also provides position data to the EFB application and correlates your position with received traffic for viewing on supported displays.
SkyEcho 2 enhances awareness with a beta feature which alerts you to nearby aircraft which have a Mode C or Mode S transponder, but no ADS-B output. Using the SSR and TCAS transponder replies, SkyEcho 2 and the supported EFB application can detect and alert you if one of these aircraft are nearby and within a dangerous altitude band.
SkyEcho 2 is expandable for greater cooperation. FLARMbridge will be available soon which will allow you to connect existing installed FLARM systems for display on your EFB. Future support is planned for DroneAware and traffic displays.
SkyEcho 2 includes native FLARM reception capability. When selected by the user, the secondary radio in SkyEcho 2 can be used as a FLARM receiver. FLARM traffic data is transmitted to participating EFB application for display of FLARM proximity warnings or FLARM traffic display. EFB integration required.
SkyEcho 2 includes an integrated baro altimeter. The altimeter correlates cabin pressure altitude to altitudes of nearby traffic to give you more accurate relative altitude alerts.
Connect wirelessly to SkyEcho and receive live traffic on your GDL90 compatible EFB or EFIS for up to 4 devices simultaneously.
The integrated battery removes cords and clutter from the cockpit and has enough capacity for up to 12 hours of flight time with the transmit function enabled.
The SkyEcho 2 device easily fits in any backpack or flight bag. Included is the RAM® suction cup mount with quick release for installation and removal of SkyEcho 2 in under 1 second. Also Included is a USB-C cable for charging or direct power from your aircraft, and protective carry case.
