(“Tel”, “Tel-Instrument” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: TIK), a leading designer and manufacturer of avionics test and measurement solutions for the Aerospace and Defense Industry, is proud to announce the introduction of its new handheld avionics flight-line Test Set, the “SDR-OMNI”.

The initial introduction will be at the AEA International Trade Show at the MGM Grand at Las Vegas, Nevada from March 26 to 29, 2018. The initial SDR-OMNI software release provides test capability for Transponders (Modes A, C, and S), ADS-B, and 978 MHz UAT capability for the large general aviation test market. This release is targeted at the civil aviation market that is subject to the January 1, 2020 requirement for ADS-B out capability.

The SDR-Omni product is a game changer in the commercial avionics test market as it will allow customers to replace multiple competitive test sets with one unit that is smaller and provides more capabilities at a fraction of the cost. It has also been designed to allow TIC to penetrate the secure communications test market which is considerably larger than our core avionics test market.”
