aircraft traffic advisory system
The TM250 is the first air traffic monitoring solution for General Aviation which combines Mode A/C, Mode-S, ADS-B and FLARM detection in one single cockpit device.
The built-in receiver decodes ADS-B transmissions from other aircraft. Their relative position is shown on the display together with their horizontal and vertical direction of movement. This allows an instantaneous capture of the traffic situation. Aircraft equipped with Mode A/C or Mode S transponders not broadcasting ADS-B messages are recognized as well, their approach is signalled both visually and acustically. In this case, however, a depiction of direction, altitude or position of these aircraft is not feasible.
In general, traffic data received within the TM250 can be provided via serial interface to external Moving Map systems for subsequent depiction.
The TM250 includes a built-in GPS receiver and can transmit its position data via an additional serial interface to an ADS-B capable Mode-S transponder. Thus originates a complete ADS-B system which can receive and transmit position data through ADS-B and contributes therefore actively to a safe flight.
