ADS-B Has Arrived

Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast, or ADS-B, is the datalink network designed to allow ATC to handle a growing volume of air traffic with greater efficiency and reliability. In the U.S. and other regions, this system also supports ADS-B “In” capability, enabling pilots to receive subscription-free aviation weather and traffic information in their cockpits. Want a more detailed look at what ADS-B can do?

Solutions for TCAS II Equipped Aircraft

Solutions for TCAS II Equipped Aircraft

From basic transponder-derived ADS-B “Out” only solutions to the most complete dual-link transmit/receive/display applications and integrated TAS/TCAS traffic alerting systems, Garmin technology offers the STC’d upgrade options you need for the flight deck you already have.

Many of these ADS-B upgrade solutions are configured with our GDL® 88 ADS-B datalink and GTX 3000 transponder — which are compatible with a variety of TCAS II interfaces and cockpit controller/display combinations.

While your ADS-B upgrade is being fitted, you may also want to consider upgrading older TCAS equipment to a newer, Change 7.1 compliant TCAS II system such as our GTS 8000. This ADS-B enhanced traffic system provides the most complete traffic picture available to pilots — showing targets for all nearby aircraft, including those not ADS-B “Out” equipped. Our exclusive CLEAR CAS technology combines both active and passive surveillance to correlate target data and pinpoint traffic threats.

Included or optionally available with many of our solutions, the subscription-free U.S. weather and datalink traffic services available through ADS-B “In” can be streamed onto a compatible tablet or other portable electronic device (PED) using flight apps such as Garmin Pilot, ForeFlight Mobile or FltPlan Go. This gives pilots easy access to these safety-enhancing capabilities without the need for costly display or system upgrades on the flight deck.

TargetTrend

TargetTrend Relative Motion Technology

Our exclusive TargetTrend relative motion technology depicts ADS-B traffic on most Garmin panel displays, portables or mobile devices running the Garmin Pilot app. Rather than providing a fixed “snapshot” of the traffic situation, TargetTrend gives you a faster, more intuitive way to judge the direction and closure rate of intruding traffic targets relative to your aircraft’s position. For example, if traffic is ahead of you and traveling along the same track but at a slower rate, the motion vector would point opposite of its indicated direction of flight to show you are overtaking the traffic. The result: You’re able to make timelier and better-informed traffic avoidance decisions.

Terminal Traffic

TerminalTraffic Technology

TerminalTraffic technology provides a comprehensive picture of ADS-B-equipped aircraft and ground vehicles in the airport environment. Service vehicles and taxiing aircraft are easily distinguished from aircraft in-flight with distinct colors and symbols, all presented on a simple, easy-to-understand SafeTaxi® diagram with reference to runways, taxiways, hangar locations and more. When properly equipped, audible traffic alerts further enhance situational awareness to ensure that traffic conflicts are not overlooked throughout critical operations such as takeoff and landing.

AutoSquawk

AutoSquawk technology

AutoSquawk technology in our ADS-B datalinks can help make your path to ADS-B compliance as simple, straightforward and cost-effective as possible. NextGen rules require that your ADS-B “Out” source squawk the same code as your transponder. That is why our patented AutoSquawk technology will automatically synchronize with your existing Mode C transponder for its squawk code and pressure altitude data — and then transmit that data through its own datalink. Not only does this allow you to meet NextGen regulations for ADS-B “Out,” but it also keeps data entry to a single point — without the need for a new transponder or separate ADS-B control system.
