The X-Range 2 is AirNav’s flagship ADS-B receiver, featuring band filtering and an amplifier system for optimum reception. It ships with an ADS-B 1090 MHz outdoor antenna that has a reception range of 200-250 nautical miles. Also available for purchase is the Radarbox FlightStick – our portable ADS-B receiver dongle for both enthusiasts and aviation professionals. Click here to visit our store.
*Note: You do not need our ADS-B hardware to use our suite of applications. However, if you wish to improve coverage at a particular location (if operating from a remote location, for example), we will ship you a receiver to install on site, free of charge. We ship our receivers with all the equipment and accessories you need to get up and running, such as power sockets, ethernet and co-axial cables, and an antenna. All you need is a router or modem with a functional internet connection, and setting up the receiver takes less than 15 minutes.
AirNav’s RadarBox Station dashboard has been developed exclusively for feeders who choose to share their ADS-B flight data with AirNav Systems via our X- Range or Flight Stick receivers. Feeders using the dashboard can view their receiver’s range, uptime, and tracked flights, as well as their feeder rank by country or receiver type.

RadarBox has coverage only in areas where a feeder volunteer has installed one of our ADS-B receivers or shares data with their Raspberry Pi or similar devices. However, with new feeders added every day, our network is growing fast. Many of Radarbox’s feeders live in coastal regions and on islands such as the Azores, Iceland, Fiji etc. This helps us track flights at least 100-200 nm off a coast. Currently over 80% of European & US airspace is covered by ground stations. Asia, Africa and Australia have seen significant growth during 2016-2018, with more feeder volunteers signing up and feeding ADS-B data to RadarBox. Our target is to have over 80% of Asia, Africa and Australia covered by ground receivers by the end of 2019.
