Nova Systems Selects FreeFlight Systems’ Advanced Weather and Airborne Aircraft Alerting System to Increase Crew Awareness

Anaheim, Calif., Feb. 28, 2024 - FreeFlight Systems announced Nova Systems selected their Dual-Band ADS-B receiver as part of an upgrade program for their customers to provide more efficient and better decision-making systems during flight. FreeFlight Systems Dual-Band ADS-B receiver provides critical weather and airborne traffic, significantly improving crew situational awareness and providing a well-informed operation, even under extreme conditions.

“We are thrilled to continue delivering a world-class mission system, and we are excited to have FreeFlight’s Dual-Band ADS-B system on board,” says Ronnie Trasler, General Manager for Aerospace Integration for Nova Systems. “We selected FreeFlight’s Dual-band ADS-B Receiver because of leading-edge ADS-B technology for maximum crew situational awareness during critical life-saving work for search and rescue operators.”

FreeFlight Systems Dual-Band ADS-B Receiver is a mission-ready TSO-certified device designed to perform in the most critical environments, making it a strong choice for SAR activities. It provides pilots in all jurisdictions with critical ADS-B information while in flight, drastically improving situational awareness and creating a safer, well-informed operation.

“Nova Systems is a leader in modernization efforts for aircraft used for SAR programs, and this selection strengthens our collaborative partnership for creating safer skies,” says Anthony Rios, President, FreeFlight Systems. “Our ADS-B Dual-Band solution is a key component of our mission to provide progressive companies, like Nova Systems, the ability to upgrade critical aircraft with the most advanced technologies, bestowing crews with the most sophisticated airborne situational awareness.”

With its all-new air-to-air capabilities, FreeFlight Systems’ Dual-Band ADS-B Receiver leads the way with its small form factor, low weight and power, and multi-interface design. This compact device can provide all the required safety information for critical operations while keeping its footprint on the aircraft’s resources low.

Designed with safety in mind, the Dual-Band ADS-B Receiver improves situational awareness in applicable environments with its reception of traffic information, direct and rebroadcasts (TIS-B) on both the 1090 and 978 frequency bands, weather reports, and radar and flight information such as NOTAMs and TFRs.
