Low Power Lab ADS-B Transmitter ADSBMiNi


When we do ADS-B lab tests, such as test our own developed ADS-B receivers or do some ADS-B demo, we always need an ADS-B transmitter.

However, all the ADS-B transmitters on market are essentially Mode-S transponders with ADS-B OUT function. These ADS-B transponders are designed to be installed on aircrafts. So, it needs some very complicated configurations.

It’s OK when you really install these ADS-B transponders on aircraft, because you already have all the wires and systems in place to support these ADS-B transponders’ operation. But it’s a challenge when you want to make these ADS-B transponders work in lab. It essentially requires recreating an aircraft's comprehensive environment to ensure these ADS-B transponders operates as they would in flight.

Furthermore, these standard ADS-B transponders emit at a high power of around 250W. Such intense power levels are not only harmful to health but also pose a risk of damaging your ADS-B receivers, when persons and ADS-B receivers exposed at close range to these ADS-B transponders in lab. 

ADSBMiNi is a low power, simple plug&play operation, 1090MHz ADS-B transmitter specifically designed for lab test applications. Integrated with a high-quality multi-GNSS receiver, ADSBMiNi can work independently without any other external devices. 

ADSBMiNi can also be utilized for airport surface movement surveillance demonstrations by putting it on a car (please refer to our Airport Vehicle ADS-B Transmitter ADSBVT for professional airport vehicle surveillance applications). Additionally, ADSBMiNi can be deployed on a drone for drone surveillance demonstrations (please also refer to our Portable ADS-B Transmitter ADSBPGA, designed for ADS-B transmitters used on general aviation aircrafts or UAV/drones).

Box contains
·ADSBMiNi Transmitter
·ADS-B antenna
·GPS antenna
·USB cable


There’re two antenna connectors to connect with ADS-B antenna and GPS antenna. Power supply via USB. Very easy to operate.
There’re several indicator lights.
White light: Indicate power. Light is on when power on.
Green light: Indicate GPS. Light is on when GPS is OK. Blinking means no GPS.
Blue light: Indicate transmitting ADS-B signal. Blinking means ADSBMiNi is transmitting ADS-B signal. At this time, the green light should be on without blinking.
Other lights: Reserved for future use.
