waas_1203QantasLink, Australia’s largest regional airline, has selected the FreeFlight 1203C SBAS/GNSS sensor for retrofit into its DHC-8-200/300 series of aircraft.

QantasLink paired the 1203C with the Dash 8’s TDR-94D Mode-S transponders.

“We’re pleased to demonstrate once again that there are practical ADS-B solutions for aircraft that have been in service for a while,” said Pete Ring, FreeFlight Systems’ director of Sales and Marketing. “We are proud to supply QantasLink with a straightforward, retrofit solution that extends the life of their DHC-8 fleet.”

As a certified ADS-B position source approved for all ICAO jurisdictions, the integrated 15-channel 1203C SBAS/GNSS sensor is part of a fully rule-compliant ADS-B Out system when paired with a compatible certified Mode S transponder like the TDR-94D. Providing reliable service to fleets worldwide, the 1203C also serves as the approved position source for CPDLC, TAWS/FMS, RNP and other NextGen applications.

Designed for business, regional, airline transport and heavy rotary wing aircraft, the 1203C provides state-of-the-art aviation GPS technology in a proven package. The 1203C allows customers to take advantage of the benefits of NextGen without the need for extensive and costly avionics upgrades.

Founded in 2001 and based in Texas, the company pioneered the first certified aviation WAAS/GPS receiver and the first rule-compliant UAT ADS-B system. FreeFlight Systems designs and manufactures high-performance avionics for flight safety. The solutions deliver substantial safety, cost, environmental and other benefits from the NextGen airspace transformation.
