[Avionics Magazine 11-02-2016] Cobham AvComm has released an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) test application, Integrity. The new application controls Cobham's IFR6000 or IFR6015 transponder test sets and GPSG-1000 positional simulator to support Supplemental Type Certification (STC) and post-approval testing for ADS-B equipment installations per FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 20-165B.
For Research and Development (R&D) and factory test, the app will control Cobham's IFF-45TS/A MK XII/A bench test set and the GPSG-1000 for ADS-B Out performance. The system can generate a complete ADS-B Out compliance report in FAA format, including a measurement for total latency showing pass/fail criteria.
