SKYVISION XTREME VISION NOW COMPATIBLE WITH IPAD AND ANDROID
Delivers freely broadcast traffic and weather to the portable cockpit.
ASHEBORO, NORTH CAROLINA SEPTEMBER 14, 2011- SkyVision Xtreme, LLC announced today support for iPad and Android devices with its ADS-B traffic and weather system. The company’s trademark product, Xtreme Vision, brings together ADS-B technology, PC-based devices, and now the iPad tablet computer and Android mobile devices. This combination delivers a wealth of information to the cockpit and is designed to enhance a pilot’s situational awareness as well as aid in flight management.
The SkyVision Xtreme ADS-B connectivity package for the iPad, or Android device, can be configured to use an operator’s existing equipment or can be purchased as a complete system. Whichever the user decides, the new Xtreme Vision system provides streamlined operation.
Xtreme Vision from SkyVision Xtreme provides a unique, intuitive synthetic vision traffic display (patent-pending) to maximize heads-up time in the cockpit. In addition, the display seamlessly enables delivery of subscription-free weather. The Xtreme Vision system is capable of displaying simultaneously on multiple iPads, Android, and/or Windows devices. The connection is made via Wi-Fi so there are no cables, nor are there any connectivity or multi-user charges, which is common in the software industry. Currently, SkyVision utilizes the popular BenQ mobile PC—a compact yet powerful portable device—to display and control its custom Windows-based software. The application runs on systems from pocket PCs to desktops.
ADS-B is the next generation technology for air traffic surveillance and control. SkyVision Xtreme has been producing ADS-B solutions since 2009, delivering on the advantages of the technology as it exists today, and providing a step into the future when it will be both universally accepted and mandated.
SkyVision Xtreme co-founder Harry Sanders stated, “The combination of Xtreme Vision and iPad shows our commitment to moving the Xtreme Vision technology forward. Our company is dedicated to providing low-cost solutions that enhance a pilot’s situational awareness and, therefore, safety. Unlocking the advantages of NextGen will continue to be the mission of SkyVision Xtreme. The tools we have developed are robust and we will continue to increase their capabilities.”
The Xtreme Vision 3D ADS-B display is available today, from SkyVision Xtreme. For additional details, contact SkyVision Xtreme at 1842 Back Creek Court, Asheboro, NC 27205, 336-465-0564; or visit us online at www.skyvisionxtreme.com.
