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.
SafeRoute+ ADS-B In capability
This next evolution of ADS-B technology includes cockpit retrofit solutions which allow airline pilots to see the same information as air traffic controllers about surrounding traffic. Besides enhanced situational awareness, ADS-B In allows airlines to increase routing, landing and take-off efficiencies, improve block time predictability and increase runway throughput. SafeRoute+ applications include Merging & Spacing (IM-S), CDTI Assisted Visual Separation (CAVS), InTrail Procedures (ITP) and Cockpit Display of Traffic Information (CDTI) through a TCAS 3000SP software upgrade and ADS-B Guidance Display (AGD) and using existing aircraft equipment.
ADS-B IN applications
TCAS 3000SP can host SafeRoute+ ADS-B In applications that increase safety, efficiency and throughput for flight operators. These functions offer fuel savings that result from flying optimized, more predictable routes with consistent spacing and fewer vectors.
SafeRoute+ consists of four selectable applications that allow airlines to install ADS-B In solutions that align best with their operations:
• Enhanced Airborne Traffic Situational Awareness (AIRB)
• CDTI-Assisted Visual Separation (CAVS)
• Initial Interval Management (I-IM)
• In-Trail Procedures (ITP)
