Sagetech MX12B Friend or Foe? Micro-Mode 5 for NATO Small Drones

Sagetech MX12B

Sagetech Corporation, a maker of certified UAV avionics, this month demonstrated NATO Mode 5 encrypted interrogations/replies with a device weighing less than 6 ounces. The MX12B is an aviation transponder that enables small unmanned aircraft to interoperate in NATO military airspace, at minimal weight-cost. The event was hosted at a government facility near Patuxent River Naval Air Station by the “IMPAX” section of the Navy’s unmanned aircraft program office (PEO U&W), which is tasked with rapid acquisition of miniature Mode 5 technology for small U.S. military drones.

Congressional mandate requires U.S. armed services to upgrade their aircraft with NATO Mode 5 technology, but small unmanned aircraft struggle to carry heavy legacy transponders that weigh as much as 10 lbs. The Navy has long sought a lightweight Mode 5 transponder for use in its small drones, some that weigh only 40 lbs at takeoff. Sagetech’s MX12B transponder weighs 5.3 ounces, provides full specification performance, and includes the latest FAA-certified civil modes for compliant flight in both military and civil airspace.

Mode 5 is an air-combat identification system which positively distinguishes friendly from enemy aircraft, reducing fratricide. The technology employs spread-spectrum radio transmissions that are difficult for adversaries to intercept or jam and encrypts data with keys that change every few seconds.

The demonstration was attended by several unmanned military aircraft program offices: Fire Scout, Blackjack, ScanEagle, Shadow, Aerosonde, and Stingray. “All were highly impressed to see such a small package deliver full specification Mode 5 performance,” said Kelvin Scribner, Sagetech’s CEO, “and the MX12B’s FAA certifications mean military UAS can operate compliantly in civil airspace as well.”

Sagetech is accepting orders for the non-certified MX12B that begins shipping February 14, 2019, and for the military-certified version that ships beginning December 24, 2019.  A non-certified civil MXS transponder with no export restrictions is available now. The FAA-certified MXS model begins shipping on June 21, 2019. For more information, email Josh Tuttle at [email protected] or visit www.Sagetech.com/Mode5Demo.

SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, is pleased to announce the use of Correlator3DTM for a large-scale project by First Base Solutions.  The software allowed the processing of 50,000 large-format images at 200MP, collected at a 10cm resolution, on a single standard PC.

The size on disk for each image consisted of 765MB, totalling 40TB of raw data. Aerial triangulation was performed and DSMs, DTMs and orthomosaics were created, leading to more than 100TB of outputs.

“We are impressed by the software speed and capabilities on large datasets”, said Brian Leggat, Project Supervisor of First Base Solutions.  “Another advantage is SimActive’s support to quickly help us during our projects.”

“First Base has been a user of the software for more than 10 years”, said Dr Philippe Simard, President of SimActive. “The continuous appreciation from such a leading mapping firm for over a decade clearly demonstrates the quality of our solutions.”
