TCAS 3000SP™

Proven world-class communications and collision avoidance technology

The TCAS 3000 Surveillance Processor (TCAS 3000SP) is based on the proven TCAS II/2000 product line with more than 15,000 units delivered. The new system delivers industry-leading TCAS II capability with the option of enhancing the surveillance capability with certified ADS-B In (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) applications. The TCAS 3000SP delivers enhancements in reliability and computing power to handle the most demanding applications, including the mandated Change 7.1 enhancement and Airborne Separation Assurance System (ASAS) upgrades.

KEY FEATURES:

  • The only TCAS to offer certified ADS-B In (TSO-C166b) applications
  • Patented amplitude monopulse antenna with high-bearing accuracy
  • Superior intruder tracking performance to track up to 400 aircraft
  • Covers mandated Change 7.1 enhancements and ASAS upgrades

Backwards compatibility assured

The TCAS 3000SP is completely backward-compatible with the TCAS 2000, and provides appreciable operating cost savings through its reduced weight and power dissipation. Other features include an internal data recorder with external PC-based data analysis tool, maintenance aurals, and the ability to perform easy on-board software uploads using a built-in compact flash port.

Optional software upgrades

Software-only upgrades can be made to add ADS-B In functions, such as Surface Area Movement Management (SAMM), Merging & Spacing, CDTI Assisted Visual Separation (CAVS), InTrail Procedures (ITP) and Cockpit Display of Traffic Information (CDTI), which are all part of the SafeRoute® suite of ADS-B applications.
