Non-Directional Beacon (NDB)

Non-Directional Beacon (NDB)

Systems Interface is a leading supplier and installer of Non-Directional-Radio Beacons (NDBs) around the world.

NDBs have continued to provide a fundamental and reliable means of aircraft navigation despite the arrival of GNSS and modern ground based systems. The decommissioning of NDB systems does not appear to be likely to occur for many years to come. For this reason manufacturers are investing in the development of modern ultra reliable systems.

Non-Directional Beacons 'Vector Series' 

We are agents for Nautel of Canada who, for over 35 years, have provided the lowest cost of ownership by making reliable products and supporting them with the industry's best customer service. Nautel are also one of the worlds' leading broadcast transmitter manufacturers and this heritage is apparent in the build quality and reliability of their NDBs.

Nautel's 'Vector series' of NDB transmitters dramatically improve system effectiveness and feature a range of models with outputs from 10W to 2KW. The Vector NDBs feature state-of-the-art digital technology including extensive remote control capability.

Antenna Tuning Units (ATUs) supplied with the Vector range of NDBs feature both automatic reactance matching and automatic resistance matching, meaning that field strength remains constant even when varying environmental conditions and ground conductivity would seriously compromise conventional NDB systems.

Many airfield operators continue to struggle on with old and unreliable equipment. Now is the time to consider a replacement. Systems Interface will be pleased to provide a budgetary quote for a modern, reliable trouble-free system.
