Traffic Collision Avoidance System

February 4, 2008 - 8:33am

The FAA has issued a TSO to Honeywell for the Bendix/King KT 73, a next-generation transponder that can receive data from ATC radar systems through the new, free-of-charge FAA traffic information service (TIS). Once picked up by the transponder, the TIS traffic data can be linked to a Honeywell Bendix/King MFD to alert pilots to as many as seven nearby aircraft using TCAS-like symbology.

If international flight operations were complicated after 9/11, they are certain to become even more difficult now in view of the U.S.-led war against Iraq. Ironically enough, the conflict began during the middle of NBAA’s 30th International Operators Conference (IOC), held in Colorado Springs, Colo. in mid-March, just a stone’s throw away from the massive Cheyenne Mountain headquarters of NORAD.

Most corporate pilots know how TCAS operates and what it does, but fewer are familiar with ADS-B. ADS-B works via small onboard transmitter/receivers, which send out brief signal bursts that include the airplane’s identification, GPS position, altitude and current flight profile once per second. These bursts are picked up by all ADS-B-equipped aircraft within line-of-sight range.

Boeing 757 and 767 pilots at United Parcel Service (UPS) will soon start using a flight-deck display that will likely be the envy of their airline and corporate cousins and one that is expected to become a future aviation standard.

Although few pilots may know the word, multilateration is quickly becoming a household term among air traffic controllers and airport authorities. But pilots will ultimately be one of its major beneficiaries.

Since the introduction of the enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) in 1996, more than 16,000 airplanes worldwide have been fitted with the Honeywell-manufactured safety device. In that time, the CFIT (controlled flight into terrain) accident rate among aircraft that carry EGPWS has dropped to zero.
