See what you have been missing.

Every year, around 40 aircraft are involved in a mid-air collision, half of which are fatal. Most of these accidents happen in good visibility and daylight. Our traffic avoidance systems help to find, identify, and avoid hazardous traffic. Our award-winning systems increase situational awareness of flight crews in thousands of installations worldwide. They are affordable, effortless to install, and easy to use.

Easy to install, affordable traffic systems for any aircraft.

Flying with a traffic system for the first time is an experience. You see what you have been missing. Our traffic systems help to make better decisions as they actively support a pilot‘s lookout. They provide better situational awareness, especially in situations with limited perception due to high workloads or complex traffic situations.

Safety-relevant instruments must be reliable, trustworthy, and of the utmost quality. Therefore, our traffic systems are produced within our certified production processes to stringent standards. This ensures they meet all requirements for reliable avionics systems.

Helping you to fly safer.

Our traffic systems support pilots and effectively enhance traffic awareness. Intuitive warning features provide reliable data for making well-founded split-second decisions in hazardous traffic situations.

Our Traffic systems integrate perfectly into your aircraft.

AIR Traffic

Traffic Receiver for FLARM, ADS-B, and MODE-S.

AIR Traffic is the heart of the traffic avoidance installation. Its flexible interface concept allows for a direct connection to many compatible indicators, third-party navigation systems (including IFR-certified panel-mount systems such as GARMIN GTN®), or even Apps.

AIR Traffic processes and displays a large fraction of surrounding aircraft and drones, usually over 90% of the manned traffic on weekend days in central Europe below FL100. It shows and is recognized by over 50,000 FLARM® users worldwide. AIR Traffic transmits and receives FLARM® data. Additionally, AIR Traffic receives ADS-B and Mode-S traffic data (It can only compute the horizontal and vertical range of Mode-S traffic. The direction of Mode-S targets is not detected). 

AIR Traffic integrates quickly into existing avionics ecosystems. Minor Change Approvals and EASA Standard Changes are available for many aircraft types, simplifying the installation process’s legal part.

AIR Traffic Displays

Modern, intuitive, and reliable traffic indicators.

AIR Traffic Displays are our premium traffic data display solutions. They feature robust hardware and advanced functionality that reduces flight crew workload and increases traffic awareness.

AIR Traffic Displays come in three form factors. They are based on our experience designing traffic systems and extensive university research. Their stunning color screens are perfectly readable in bright sunlight, yet they draw very little power.

AIR Traffic Displays are compatible with all FLARM® systems and many other traffic systems. AIR Traffic Displays can directly replace old FLARM®-Displays. They are covered by Minor Change Approvals for FLARM®-Comaptible Systems and EASA Standard Changes (CS-STAN). They can be installed into a broad range of aircraft.

AIR Traffic (AT-1) with Mount (B579)

The market’s most comprehensive traffic detection: AIR Traffic (AT-1)

Our AIR Traffic (AT-1) marks the heart of the traffic avoidance installation. It is a traffic avoidance system for hidden/remote installation. AT-1 combines ADS-B 1090 and Transponder reception with the latest generation FLARM® transmitter and receiver (PowerFLARM with two FLARM antennas and antenna diversity).

Receives More Traffic

FLARM, ADS-B, and Mode-S

As it is specifically designed for European airspace, the AIR Traffic (AT-1) receives more targets than other systems. For example, it receives SIL=0 ADS-B targets, common in Europe’s lower airspace but not received by most American-made receivers.

AIR Traffic shows the exact 3D position of FLARM® and ADS-B Traffic and the distance and relative altitude of Mode-S transponders.

With over 50,000 FLARM® systems in use worldwide, AT-1 makes a huge fraction of airspace users aware of you, as your position is also sent to all other airspace users over FLARM®. 

Voice Warnings

Advanced Audio Interface

AT-1 can be installed without any display of the panel is full. Traffic is annunciated directly in the aircrafts audio system in clearly understandable, natural voice. Voice warnings help to reduce head-down time and increase situational awareness by actively announcing threat traffic.

Easy to install

Easy mounting, robust connectors, small size

We have sold thousands of traffic systems and have listened closely to installers. AIR traffic features robust connectors, a smaller design, and better mounting options. It can even be combined with an AIR Traffic Display into a single panel-mount unit.

Simple configuration

Wirelessly with any smartphone, tablet, or PC

Configuring AIR Traffic is as simple as using the Internet—with any smartphone, tablet, or PC. Simply connect to the WiFi® network AIR Traffic provides and open a website. Additionally, it features advanced diagnostic functions that help test and verify its correct function.

Certified installation

Installable into many aircraft types

Minor Change Approvals are available for many aircraft types, simplifying the legal part of the installation process. AIR Traffic has been qualified according to RTCA DO-160 for environmental conditions. Therefore, maintenance organizations can integrate it into larger aircraft types and helicopters.

Integrates seamlessly

RS232, ARINC429, and WiFi® Interfaces

AIR Traffic‘s flexible interface concept allows for direct integration into existing cockpits. It works with any traffic indicator on the market, many navigation systems (including IFR-certified panel-mount systems such as GARMIN® GTN®), and even with apps like ForeFlight® or SkyDemon® over its integrated WiFi® interface.

AIR Traffic with AIR Traffic Display 57

A stunning way to display traffic: AIR Traffic Displays

Many functions of the new AIR Traffic Displays have been developed as a result of current research projects at leading research facilities such as the Institute of Flight Systems and Automatic Control at the Technical University of Darmstadt.

We have added a range of new and unique functions to increase safety. A new radar symbology helps to differentiate different types of aircraft, e.g. helicopters from gliders or jets. A new alert view helps to avoid misinterpretations in conflicting traffic situations. Traffic is also monitored after a signal loss with tracking of its probable position.


Traffic Indication

Traffic is indicated in a “radar-style” screen. The range can be adjusted by using a rotary knob from .5nm to 32nm radius (units are configurable). The own aircraft (magenta) and other received traffic are shown with aircraft symbols.

Alert View

The alert screen has been designed as a result of current research. It helps reduce the potential for misconceptions, especially in situations with high bank angles of the aircraft. The screen is easy to interpret, even for crews who are unfamiliar with flying with traffic warning systems.

Head-On Alert View

Conflicting head-on traffic is displayed using a unique “horizon-style” indication that allows for quick and easy situation conception. The new indication has been developed in cooperation with research facilities, with the help of expert interviews and the help of surveys of several hundreds of pilots. It can help to reduce reaction time in confliciting situations.

Nav Boxes

Optionally, little info fields (we call them “Nav Boxes”) can be shown on the right side of the radar screen. Pilots can actively select a target to review detailed target information such as vertical separation or distance. Targets of special interest can be marked in different colors for easier recognition.

Signal Loss

After losing the signal of a selected target, the target’s last known position is continuously monitored and displayed with increasing vagueness. This helps keeping an eye on out-of-range-targets and estimating their probable position.

White Mode

The user interface can be switched to a white mode.  Some users prefer the white user interface in daytime. Especially if other white displays are used in the same panel, AIR Traffic Display shows a familiar face.


Different types of traffic (powered aircraft, gliders, circling aircraft) are shown with different symbols. Very high or very low targets are smaller than targets in the same altitude as the own aircraft. Differential altitude is directly indicated on the symbol – helping to easily interpret the traffic situation.
