Garmin® Introduces GTX 3000 TCAS II/ACAS II-Compatible, ADS-B-Compliant Transponder For Business, Regional Aircraft

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, announced today the GTX 3000, a new remote-mount, Mode-S transponder designed to accommodate the environmental and operational demands of transport category aircraft. The GTX 3000 meets the requirements for TCAS II/ACAS II compatibility and also meets the latest standards for full ADS-B “Out” compliance, offering business and regional aircraft a new solution to satisfy worldwide regulatory requirements.

“The GTX 3000 has an all-new, modern design that makes it much smaller and more lightweight, yet more advanced than other TCAS II-compatible transponders on the market,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “With higher transmit power and full ADS-B Out capability, this transponder is another reflection of Garmin’s commitment to offering the most forward-looking products in business aviation.”

The GTX 3000 has received TSO/DO-260B authorization, allowing it to meet current compliance standards as a certified ADS-B Out solution when paired with a compatible position source. The GTX 3000 broadcasts on the 1090 MHz ADS-B frequency, making this an ideal solution for those business aircraft that fly at high altitudes or outside of the U.S. where it will be required to broadcast on the 1090 frequency band.

The GTX 3000 will be standard equipment on several new aircraft platforms including the Cessna Citation TEN, Citation Latitude, Citation Longitude and Citation Sovereign, the Bombardier Learjet 70 and Learjet 75, as well as future forward fit and upgrade programs.

Garmin’s aviation business segment is a leading provider of solutions to OEM, aftermarket, military and government customers. Garmin’s portfolio includes navigation, communication, flight control, hazard avoidance, surveillance, and other products and services that are known for innovation, reliability, and value.
