Veronte is compatible with: 

  • uAvionix
    • ADS-B Transceiver ping 1090/1090i
    • ADS-B Transceiver ping 2020/2020i
    • ADS-B Receiver ping Rx

The configuration displayed below is for an ADS-B

  1. The first step to configure it is to go to Device – Payload – Transponder/ADS-B and check the enable button. Once there, select the Custom message to be used for the information exchange, since it will automatically be filled with the information that the ADS-B needs.
  2. Choose the model already mentioned (uAvionix ping 1090)
  3. Switch to the desired Mode
    • OFF: ADS-B switched off
    • STANDBY: ADS-B will not respond to interrogation.
    • ON: Replies to interrogations with 4-digit squawk code.
    • ALT: Replies to interrogation with altitude information.
    • 1090ES: ADS-B transmit is always enabled when a 6-digit ICAO code is entered.
    • **Enable Ident Mode: UAV identification under ATC request (only available for ON and ALT modes)
  4. Introduce the Squawk Code provided.
  5. Enable reception.

There is an example configuration in the following picture from uAvionix ping 1090/1090i.
