PingStation (Ground Station)
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 available in JSON or Compressed VRS.
Detects ADS-B equipped aircraft on 1090MHz and 978MHz within a 150-mile radius in real time.
