(Inc. 20% VAT)
(£475.00 Exc. VAT)

Full Interoperability includes access to the complete PilotAware ecosystem allowing you to detect aircraft transmitting the other Electronic Conspicuity signals including Mode-S/3D, FLARM, ADS-B, CAP1391 and FANET

With the PilotAware ecosystem aircraft detection is provided through Direct Detection enhanced by ATOM GRID ground station rebroadcast, SkyGRID relay and iGRID cellular connectivity to your Aircraft.

FX is a brand new product from PilotAware that can be directly interfaced with your existing FLARM device to provide full 'See and be Seen' integration between FLARM and PilotAware.

More Information

PilotAware FX is a great step forward in Electronic Conspicuity (EC). When connected to your existing FLARM unit via a single cable, the Rosetta FX provides full interoperability between gliders and other FLARM users and also access to the PilotAware infrastructure, (ATOM GRID, SKY GRID and iGRID). This connection then shows you the positions of all other EC transmissions within 60 km of your position. The FX has also been designed so that it can also be used without being directly connected to a FLARM device. In this case, you will benefit from all of the new functionality of FX apart from transmitting a FLARM-out signal. Like all PilotAware products it will, however, pick up FLARM transmissions via the PilotAware infrastructure along with all other EC transmissions including; ADSB, CAP1391, Mode-S/3D, FANET+ and of course PilotAware.

Point-to-Point Traffic Detection

PilotAware FX emits an SDR860 signal that provide ‘See and be Seen’ functionality with neighbouring airborne PilotAware equipped aircraft and the PilotAware ATOM ground station network. The direct detection and transmission of aircraft ensures a low-latency, point-to-point link, providing EC visibility wherever you are. The integrated 1090MHz receiver detects ADS-B and CAP1391 devices. All this traffic data can be forwarded onto your electronic flight bag or navigation app.

A ground network built for Electronic Conspicuity

To complement the direct point-to-point detection, we have the ATOM GRID ground stations network, made up of an extensive array of antennas, throughout the UK and Europe designed to uplink date directly to the FX. This unique European network enhances aircraft detection by adding EC transmission from FLARM, FANET +, Mode-S (Multioperation), METARS and more. ATOM stations communicate with each other intelligently, to ensure the FX gets the latest, most accurate aircraft positions possible.

A pocket-sized relay and rebroadcasting device

SkyGRID is PilotAware registered, innovative method of re-broadcasting traffic from an airborne platform. Imagine a paraglider transmitting PilotAware flying behind a mountain, or a jet training in a valley transmitting ADS-B; SkyGrid uses locally flying PilotAware equipped aircraft that can look down upon these aircraft, and rebroadcast their positions from a higher, and therefore better, vantage point without topographical obscuration. This rebroadcast method also helps reduce airframe obscuration, provides an additional data path redundancy and adds ground station functionality directly into the aircraft. FX is smaller, lighter and more compact than anything we’ve done before and uses 80% less power than previous devices, so is perfect for gliders and foot launched aircraft.

Cellular Data Complements FX

FX is designed to link directly to the cellular network using the hotspot on your mobile phone. Using the same low-latency VPN technique as ATOM, FX can receive significant amounts of time-stamped traffic and weather data directly from our servers. iGRID also enables instant over-the-air software updates, flight information and provides additional data path redundancy so you remain conspicuous and aware.

An Intuitive New User Interface

We’ve seized this chance to transform the FX user interface. It’s now fresh, streamlined, and straightforward, ensuring that from initial setup
