Traffic information from the GTS series is displayed on the map page or traffic page of Garmin display systems, as well as select third-party displays, using TAS/TCAS symbology. Additional traffic symbology can be displayed on Garmin SVT-equipped PFDs. When the GTS product receives replies to its interrogations, it computes the responding aircraft’s range, bearing, relative altitude, and closure rate. Then, it enhances location data received from ADS-B Out equipped targets, plots the traffic location, predicts collision threats, and depicts the information on the traffic display. The TAS and TCAS I systems also include expanded audio traffic alerts in an ATC-like spoken format. For example, “Traffic; Eleven o’clock; High; Two miles.”
The GTS series also offers flexible antenna configurations that ensure optimum system performance for specific types of aircraft. Customers may choose a single true directional antenna on top of the aircraft, with or without a bottom mounted omnidirectional antenna. High performance aircraft customers may select a top-and-bottom dual directional antenna configuration.
The GTS 825 and 855 have received the FAA’s Technical Standard Order (TSO) authorization, and Garmin will apply for an FAA Approved Model List Supplemental Type Certificate (AML STC). The systems are available immediately for a list price starting at $19,995 and $24,995, respectively.
