Cobham AvComm, formerly the Aeroflex AvComm business unit, has introduced the ATC-5000NG NextGen ATC/DME Test Set.

Designed for engineering development, design validation, manufacturing and return-to-service test applications, the ATC-5000NG is the replacement product for the legacy SDX-2000 and the ATC-1400A/S-1403DL. The software defined radio architecture supports more transponder RTCA DO-181E test capability than the legacy products did and has new capability needed to support the Federal Aviation Administration’s NextGen test requirements including ADS-B (RTCA DO-260B) and UAT (RTCA DO-282).

ADS-B is the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast for next-generation (NextGen) aircraft navigation. The FAA has mandated that aircraft operating in airspace that now requires a Mode C transponder must be equipped with ADS-B Out by Jan. 1, 2020.

“We are excited to introduce the new ATC-5000NG which offers our customers the most comprehensive test set available in the market today. This will help our customers prepare for new requirements driven by the FAA’s NextGen and Europe’s SESAR projects,” said Ryan Panos, vice president and general manager of Cobham AvComm.

In September 2014, Cobham completed its acquisition of Aeroflex for $1.46 billion.
