Microair Avionics is an technology based, Australian company developing, manufacturing and retailing good avionics products for domestic and worldwide markets. All of Microair's products are designed and manufactured in Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia.
Microair began making a small VHF Comm (M720) suited to gliders and ultralight / experimental aircraft. This product's success was based on its small size and its great value for money. The combination of small size and low price was very successful.
Microair has listened to its customers; its products are designed by pilots for pilots. As a result, the M760 radio which followed the 720, incorporated many new features. Microair made the M760 even smaller than the 720, making it one of the smallest, cost effective VHF aircraft comms in the world.
Microair then developed the T2000 Transponder this is one of the smallest and lightest (600g / 21 oz) transponders in the world. Despite this, the T2000 is also one of the least expensive Transponders available.
Like the M760, the T2000 is very power efficient. It has very low power consumption, and still produces a nominal 200W!
The development of the T2000 Transponder then leads to the arrival of the T2000UAV version transponder. Again it has a very low power consumption which promotes prolonged operation on battery. The T2000UAV can receives ASCII commands which enables the UAV operator to comply with all ATC transponder situations as well as being able to be queried for the status of its operating parameters.
Microair next product is a T1000-TX ADS-B Transponder as part of its ADS-B series. After the ADS-B transponder Microair is to re-configure their transponders line to Mode S to suit the new requirements in the European marketplace.
The TSO certification of the T2000 transponder has expanded Microair's customer base into the general aviation sector. The features of small size, low price, and easy installation, have been a successful combination for Microair in the GA market.
