Team Eagle’s latest partnership takes flight

March 2016

Team Eagle, with headquarters in Campbellford, Ontario, has entered into a strategic partnership with FreeFlight Systems based in Texas, USA. FreeFlight Systems designs and manufactures products that comply with NextGen, the FAA-initiated program designed to increase safety and efficiency in Air Traffic Management systems. Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast, or ADS-B, is a core facet of NextGen and compliments existing radar technology with an expansive system of airborne, ground, and satellite systems for more accurate and comprehensive air traffic control, including the provision of location and identification of airside equipped vehicles for Air Traffic Control.

FreeFlight recently received FAA approval for their latest version of a vehicle based ADS-B vehicle transponder to comply with Advisory Circular 150/5220-26, “Airport Ground Vehicle Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Out Squitter Equipment.” The latest version includes the ability to move the unit from vehicle to vehicle, on a seasonal basis as required by the airport.

“Team Eagle is thrilled to be able to offer this enhanced ADS-B product suite and related services to our customers,” says Paul Cudmore, Team Eagle’s Chief Operating Officer. “This technology will help airports meet the challenge of managing increasingly busy runways, and compliments our existing products and services for runway incursion and situational awareness. With our offices in Seattle and New Hampshire, and through our established Territory Manager network in the United States, we are excited to work with FreeFlight Systems in bringing this affordable system to a broader market by way of our existing airfield vehicle, equipment, software and electronics partnerships and customer base.”

“We are excited about our partnership with Team Eagle,” says Michael Frazier, FreeFlight’s Director of Program and Product Management. “Team Eagle represents a new way to position our products by specifically focusing on airfield equipment and technology bundling which will be very important to our collective success of the revised ADS-B product.” states Frazier.

FreeFlight Systems produces high-performance avionics that improve the safety, efficiency, and affordability of flying. Founded in 2001, the company pioneered the first certified aviation WAAS/GPS receiver and first rule-compliant UAT ADS-B system.
