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.


  • 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.
