Sagetech Clarity ADS-B enters manned aviation market, ships ADS-B receiver


SALMON, Wash., 28 March 2013. Unmanned avionics provider Sagetech Corp. is now shipping its Clarity ADS-B receiver, marking official entry into the manned aviation marketplace, says a company spokesperson.

Sagetech’s new Clarity ADS-B receiver ushers in a new, safer era of flight, giving pilots convenient and affordable access to in-flight traffic and weather data, which until recently was only available through paid subscription. Clarity receivers work with iPad charting apps, which are finding huge popularity among pilots, replacing paper charts with easy and convenient electronic chart downloads.

The Clarity ADS-B receiver is a portable unit smaller than a hockey puck. Sagetech offers two models of its new receiver: the baseline Clarity, with 978- and 1090-MHz receive channels, priced at $1,150, and the full-featured Clarity SV, which includes a synthetic vision attitude heading reference system (AHRS), priced at $1,400.  
“At last, customers have a high-end option,” Sagetech President Kelvin Scribner describes. “Clarity is all about design. Clarity is all about engineering. Clarity is the absolute finest ADS-B receiver.”
A video on the Sagetech website,  uses animation to reveal the inner workings of Clarity and the technology it brings to the General Aviation marketplace.
Both Clarity models include:

- Dual-Link ADS-B data receiver (978 MHz, 1090 MHz)

- Free in-flight weather (NEXRAD radar, PIREPS, forecasts and more)

- Data Burst Technology to buffer ADS-B messages while the iPad sleeps

- Sagetech360 Internal Phased Array Antenna for superior omni-directional performance


- No wires; stand-alone operation

- Up to 8 hours of battery operation, or operate/charge in flight

- Open compatibility, supporting WingX, Mountain Scope, Sky Vision Global Nav Source and all other participating EFB app software

- Wi-Fi connection to iPad or other tablet.

 Sagetech Corp. tiny aviation transponders transformed how small unmanned aircraft are employed by making them visible to ATC radar. Sagetech’s Clarity ADS-B receivers provide integration for the general aviation marketplace. Founded in 1998, Sagetech operates out of four facilities in Hood River, Ore., and White Salmon, Wash.
