GTS™ 8000 TCAS/ACAS II
The Leading Edge of Traffic Surveillance
A fully TCAS II/ACAS II Change 7.1 compliant system
Issues Resolution Advisories to help clear conflicts
Displays vertical speed constraints and climb/descend info
Active traffic is enhanced with ADS-B "In" for a comprehensive traffic picture
Upgradeable for NextGen/SES System applications
The GTS 8000 brings new levels of safety to aircraft by not only providing a crystal-clear picture of potential traffic threats, but also by issuing maneuver commands that direct pilots on how to best clear these conflicts. As a Change 7.1 compliant solution, the GTS 8000 meets the standardization requirements that will be implemented in most countries as early as 2014.
Gain an Extra Set of Eyes
When the GTS 8000 receives replies to its interrogations, it calculates the target’s range, bearing, relative altitude and closure rate. It uses additional data received from any ADS-B “Out” equipped targets and then plots each target’s location, predicts potential traffic conflicts and depicts the information on the flight display. Course trend vectors and vertical climb or descent information can also be shown on compatible displays. In addition, the GTS 8000 also issues audio alerts. For example, you might hear, “Traffic, Traffic” through your headset.
