Avionics solutions provider Becker has announced that it has chosen DAC International as its distributor of the Becker BXT family of Mode S transponders – an ADS-B solution on business and commercial type aircraft.

“We constantly hear from our customers that they need more solutions and more affordable Mode S solutions to meet the US, European and other global mandates, as well as anticipated ADS-B mandates, as ATC modernisation spread across the globe,” said Forrest Colliver, Becker CEO. “Becker’s long history in avionics and Mode S solutions allows us to leverage our knowledge into an alternative Mode S solution that is affordable and much more reliable, with the same small, lightweight, compact form factor for TCAS II and non-TCAS II aircraft installations.”
Becker’s latest version of the Mode S transponder, the 6553, is designed specifically for full interoperability with existing TCAS II systems, as well as ADS-B compliance, Becker said.

“We are pleased and excited to be working with Becker to expand industry Mode S ADS-B compliance options by supplying BXT family turnkey installations particularly for the business and commercial aircraft operators of TCAS II and non-TCAS II operations,” said Francisco ‘Cisco’ Hernandez, DAC International President. “Customer feedback has been strong in support of the Becker Mode S offering, with our turnkey approach and we have STCs in work and more on the way. People are always pleased to have alternative solutions.”
