UAT (Universal Access Transceiver)

The UAT and similar transceivers are what make ADS-B possible. They can broadcast positioning and performance data from an aircraft while receiving air traffic, weather, and other critical information from ground stations. This greatly enhances the pilot’s awareness of the aerial environment.
