Sagetech Avionics, Inc. provides the world’s smallest robust aviation surveillance equipment. Their products dominate the UAS market and are standard or optional equipment on most production small and medium unmanned aircraft. Sagetech products have been paving the way in miniature surveillance avionics since 2005 when they began delivering Mode C transponders for Marine Corps ScanEagles. This transponder was a first in transponder miniaturization, providing a feature setting ScanEagle apart in the UAS market: the ability to be seen by ATC radar.
