Sunhillo’s Margate II ADS-B Receiver is a field deployed and proven ADS-B receiver developed to meet or exceed DO-260B and DO-282 standards with high reliability, range, and accuracy.
The Margate II ADS-B Receiver accepts and decodes 978 MHz UAT and 1090ES ADS-B and TIS-B. Sunhillo’s ADS-B Receiver accepts the transmission directly into the module from a front panel TNC connector for the RF antenna feed allowing for a simple and portable setup.
Additionally, the unit features a fully integrated GPS receiver with a front panel SMA Connector for the GPS input. Outputs include a variety of destinations and formats including ASTERIX CAT021 and FAA CAT033 over ethernet.
The Margate II is trusted by the US Military for current operations and can be paired with our Surveillance Monitoring System (SMS), also US Military deployed, to view live ADS-B targets for Situational Awareness.
The Margate II ADS-B Receiver integrates technology from the Longport ADS-B Receiver and packages it into the Margate II’s robust, small form factor, and versatile design. The Margate II is positioned as a standalone compact unit or optioned to fit in our new slim 1U rack mountable chassis. The new chassis is designed to fit single or dual ADS-B Receivers or a combination of a RICI 5000 and a Margate II ADS-B Receiver in a single 1U solution.
When paired with the RICI 5000 in a single 1U chassis a variety of conversions can be performed including TPS75 to SGF-IP, as well as message format transformations between surveillance data in ECGP, CD-2, ASR, various ASTERIX categories, ADS-B, MAR, TPS75, Mode 4, ARTS, SGF, AIRCAT-500, Mode S, sync, Async serial and LAN formats.
The Margate II ADS-B Receiver is built upon FAA deployed Sunhillo Software and Hardware providing sensor interfacing capabilities. Sunhillo’s Margate II ADS-B Receiver is currently deployed to the US National Guard, US Army Ground Based Detect and Avoid (GBDAA) program, US Army Fire Ranges, the National Aviation Research and Technical Park (NARTP), and the Mid Atlantic Aviation Partnership (MAAP) FAA UAS Test Site.
