DAC INTERNATIONAL SECURES SUPPLEMENTAL TYPE CERTIFICATE FOR AN ADS-B OUT SOLUTION FOR THE SIKORSKY 76 PLATFORM

DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved its supplemental type certificate (STC) for the Trig Avionics TT22 transponder with the FreeFlight Systems 1201 WAAS/GPS sensor. This STC ensures ADS-B Out compliance for use with the Sikorsky S-76 A/B/C models.

The TSO-certified 1201 GPS/WAAS Sensor provides position, velocity, and time (PVT) data to integrated navigation systems. Small, lightweight, attractively priced and easily installed, the 1201 supports oceanic and domestic, enroute, terminal, non-precision approach and departure operations and meets ADS-B accuracy requirements worldwide.

“This is a cost-effective and mandate-ready solution for S-76 operators,” said General Manager of DAC International Cisco Hernandez. “We worked with our integration and certification partner, Peregrine, to bring this NextGen STC to the rotorcraft market and Peregrine’s ADS-B certification experience was apparent throughout the project.”

Trig’s TT22 transponder replaces the non ADS-B transponder and is the smallest and lightest (0.8 lbs) transponder, allowing the unit to fit into the tightest of panel spaces. It is an approved Class 1 transponder which meets the ADS-B functions of DO-260B Class B1S as well as FAA TSO C112c and C166b. The Trig TT22 also meets all equal ETSO requirements in Europe.
