 - July 31, 2011, 8:10 AM

Accord Technology’s NexNav mini GPS Waas Class Beta-1 sensor has been recognized by the FAA as meeting requirements outlined in Advisory Circular 20-165. The 20-165 requirements cover accuracy and other parameters that GPS sensors will need to meet standards for ADS-B operations. The FAA will require mandatory equipage with ADS-B out systems beginning in 2020. NexNav mini is about the size of a credit card and is compatible with new global satellite-based augmentation systems such as Egnos (Europe), Japan’s MTSat and India’s Gagan. NexNav mini also conforms to TSO C145c.
