      Kinetic Announcing the SBS-3 - PAST – PRESENT – FUTURE - 3 Receivers in one box.

      (Coming Soon)

      Kinetic SBS3
      http://www.kinetic.co.uk/sbs-3.php

      ADS-B / AIS / Marine band / Air bands (VHF and UHF)
      Multi-Device - Multi-Band - Multi Channel Software Defined Radio Receiver / Decoder

      Kinetic are proud to announce the SBS-3, a unique and revolutionary product, built on the heritage of our SBS-1 range of receivers.

      The SBS-3 features include

      * An improved design 1090Mhz Mode-S , ADS-B receiver.

      * Dual independent 40Mhz to 800 Mhz SDR Tuners with 8Mhz Bandwidth per tuner.
      Listen to multiple stations at the same time.

      * Listen to VHF on one tuner, UHF on the other and digitally mix the two together.

      * Full speed 100M Ethernet interface with concurrent multiple sockets.

      * On board digital audio mixing plus stereo output DAC and audio interface.

      * Audio output over Ethernet

      * Raw Data output for Mode-S, AIS, and all other demodulations such as ACARS.

      * Onboard processing and demodulation - NO PC REQUIRED. Ideal for remote site monitoring

      * I2C Options interface for external controllers and peripherals. LCD Touchscreen controller (due December 2011)

      The SBS-3 Pushes all the right buttons
      Forward Thinking – Thinking Forward


      The SBS3 is a true stand-alone SDR receiver, unlike the majority of so-called SDR receivers on the market, which are, in reality, just digital tuners!

      The SBS3 performs all demodulation and decoding operations internally, without the need for any third-party software or any other PC software , enabling genuine stand-alone operation. This unique design means that numerous audio/data streams can be monitored simultaneously and remotely.

      The SBS-3 works as either a Client or a Server which enables you to either connect to it, or it can connect to a designated server over the local network or indeed the internet, for true stand-alone use.

      The SBS-3 is powered via the USB connector, either by a PC, a standard USB Hub or an in-car charger outlet.

      The SBS-3 is a flexible design with a phenomenally large FPGA, allowing for future additional on-board decoders for formats such as ACARS, POCSAG and many others.

      The SBS-3 is a revolutionary hardware product that combines with the included display software and allows aviation, marine professionals and enthusiasts worldwide, the ability to monitor the skies and seas in an unprecedented fashion.

      The SBS-3 is also compatible with PlanePlotter and ShipPlotter including their latest functionality.

      It provides a true Real-Time Virtual Radar display on a PC or MAC screen showing Mode-S/ADS-B equipped aircraft and AIS equipped vessels immediately around them.

      The SBS-3 follows on from the very successful SBS-1, SBS-1 Mk2, SBS-1e and SBS-1eR and it adds the new features of SDR AM/FM receiver covering a wide range of frequencies including the VHF and UHF Air bands, the VHF Marine band and the broadcast FM band.

      The SBS-3 has been designed to protect your investment for the years to come and is backed by Kinetic's traditonal commitment to never charging for firmware updates.

      The AIS part should work with the AirNav ShipTrax AIS software. We should see when the unit is released.

              I spoke to the US distributor this week, and they told me that they initially were to produce it using the same casing as SBS-1, but due to some overheating issues they were forced to redesign. But it's going in production now, so hopefully er will see it on the market before Christmas.

                        Hm, thanks for the info, but lets see a running receiver.

                        Dedicated 1090 MHz Tuner, Plus Two SDR Tuners :- AM / FM / VHF / UHF / 27Mhz - 980 MHZ / = 3 Tuners with 2 Antenna sockets, Filtering spurious signals, how ?

                        common output for the 3 Tuners ?

                        Plus Optional ACARS / UAT / AIS and many others. = price ?

                          The introduction of the word "optional" has raised a few concerns. Especially as the original SBS-1 was launched with an "options" to connect by Ethernet and use MapModeS (MMS) data sharing.

                          The Ethernet option became, eventually, an expensive retrofit and MMS never appeared.

                            David Goodman (CEO Kinetic) has posted an SBS-3 update on the Kinetic forum.

                            http://www.kinetic.co.uk/forums/view...9f9005c93a4eae

                            Personally, I'm now confused as to what will or will not be included for the advertised price of GBP 499. What decoders and software will be included as "standard" and which will be optional and at what cost?

                            When the SBS-3 was first announced (via a Radio User magazine exclusive), it was described as a combined ModeS and AIS receiver with two-channel software defined radio for VHF/UHF. The software would run under Windows or Apple MAC and would display ModeS and AIS data on the same screen.

                            It now appears that the specification is a moving target with slightly blurred features. According to the Radio User article, availability would be September 2011 though Goodman's post claims the first units will be coming off the production line this Wednesday. Assuming these will be subject to extensive beta testing, I suspect the SBS-3 won't be available until early next year and it's anyone's guess what will or won't be included? Maybe ShipTrax will be available before then?

                              Nearly there. And at least the ShipTrax hardware and software will have had extensive beta testing by real users.
