L-3 and Aspen team to offer multiple display options for the Lynx NGT-9000

L-3 Aviation Products (L-3 AP) announced today that its Lynx® NGT-9000 line of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) products will interface with Aspen Avionics' Evolution line of Multi-Function Displays (MFDs) and Primary Flight Displays (PFDs). The interface will support the display of ADS-B weather and traffic data from the NGT-9000's ADS-B receiver on the Aspen panel. Additionally, Lynx NextGen Active Traffic® from the NGT-9000+ model will show active Traffic Advisory System (TAS) information on the Aspen display.

Attendees at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015, running July 20-26, are invited to visit the L-3 booth (3109–3114 in Hangar C) and Aspen booth (2145–2148 in Hanger B) for product demonstrations and further details on both products.

“Aspen is exactly the type of forward-thinking company we enjoy teaming with,” said Larry Riddle, L-3 Aviation Products' vice president of marketing and sales for business, regional and general aviation. “Aspen is known for technologically advanced displays at affordable prices, and our Lynx product is being recognized as an innovative ADS-B solution at the right price point for General Aviation (GA) aircraft. The entire GA community benefits when avionics manufacturers work together to bring integrated and affordable technologies to the cockpit.”

L-3's Lynx NGT-9000 ports data to the Aspen Evolution displays using the popular RS-232 interface. Traffic and weather data can be overlaid on the Aspen Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) and moving map windows. Traffic can also be viewed on a dedicated page and on the Synthetic Vision Attitude Indicator. While the Lynx NGT-9000 displays traffic and weather on its own touchscreen display, pilots can choose to view certain data on the Lynx display and other data on the Aspen display. This multi-display configuration allows pilots to view more information simultaneously and configure the data to their flying needs.

The Lynx NGT-9000 is the world's first FAA-certified touchscreen Mode S ES transponder that is also a display for ADS-B In data, including traffic, NEXRAD graphical and textual weather, as well as moving maps. Up-to-the-minute Notice to Airmen (NOTAMs), Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs), and Winds and Temps Aloft data are also included. The Lynx NGT-9000 is a dual-mode 1090ES ADS-B Out plus 1090 and 978 ADS-B In device that is designed for 14 V or 28 V installations. L-3 NextGen Active Traffic is an available option that is integrated directly into the Lynx NGT-9000, eliminating the need for a remote box. Internal active traffic and/or ADS-B antenna diversity are available options for the NGT-9000. A Wi-Fi interface module provides connectivity to iPad® and Android™ devices with applications such as Wing Pro and SkyRadar (additional apps are pending). All Lynx products incorporate an embedded position source (WAAS-GPS) requiring no external GPS connections.

A free app is available that simulates the Lynx touchscreen on iPad and Android tablets. Please visit L-3Lynx.com for further details on the complete Lynx family of ADS-B products, as well as for links to the Apple® and Android apps. The site also includes an interactive demo for those accessing it via a PC.
