Equipment format

Why are manufacturers still not producing ADSB equipment in this format? I think it would be convenient for many to install this type of equipment, and to supply power and Internet over a twisted pair.

To make all that weatherproof would be a nightmare and quite expensive.

Also just producing a product that compact which can talk over Ethernet and receives 1090 MHz would be VERY expensive for a small production run.

Don’t think there is a market for it.

What you are showing in the picture is an outdoor WiFi access point?
If you have much larger numbers to produce or can charge enough money, only then such a product is interesting.

Yes. Wifi Access Point.

Buy one, gut it, and convert it to an ADS-B receiver…

Pi Zero W $10 + dongle $20 in a waterproof container + antenna = cheap!
