Every year, around 40 aircraft are involved in a mid-air collision. Half of these are fatal. Most of these accidents happen in good visibility and daylight. Our traffic avoidance systems help finding, identifying, and avoiding hazardous traffic. Our systems are providing increased situational awareness to flight crews in thousands of installations worldwide. They are affordable, easy to install, maintain, and use.
Flying with a traffic system for the first time is an experience. You see what you have been missing. Our traffic systems help making better decisions as they actively support a pilot‘s lookout. They provide better situational awareness, especially in situations with limited perception due to high workload or in complex traffic situations.
Safety relevant instruments must be reliable, trustworthy, and of utmost quality. Yet, no certification requirements exist for small, low cost collision warning units based on FLARM® and ADS-B technology.
Despite not being ETSO certified, our traffic systems are produced within our certified production processes to very strict standards. This way we ensure they meet all requirements for reliable avionics systems.
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.
TRX-1500 marks the heart of the traffic avoidance installation. Its flexible interface concept allows for direct connection to many compatible indicators, third party navigation systems (including IFR certified panelmount systems such as GARMIN GTN®), or even Apps.
TRX-1500 transmits and receives FLARM® data. This means it is shows and is recognized by over 30,000 FLARM® users worldwide. In addition to FLARM® signals, it receives ADS-B and Mode-S traffic data (TRX-1500 is only capable of computing the horizontal and vertical range of Mode-S traffic. The direction of Mode-S targets is not detected).
TRX-1500 integrates quickly into exisiting avionics ecosystems. Minor Change Approvals and EASA Standard Changes are available for many aircraft types simplifying the legal part of the installation process.
AIR Traffic Display is our newly designed premium display solution for traffic data. It features robust hardware, a sunlight readable display and advanced functionality reducing flightcrew workload and increasing traffic awareness.
AIR Traffic Display, or ATD-57 in short, is our new traffic indicator based on all of our experience designing traffic systems and extensive university research. Its stunning color screen is perfectly readable in bright sunlight. Yet it draws very little power.
AIR Traffic Display is compatible to all FLARM® systems, many ADS-B-IN devices, and works with systems that use the GARMIN® TIS protocol. AIR Traffic Display can directly replace old FLARM®-Displays. It is covered by Minor Change Approvals for TRX-Devices or FLARM®-Comaptible Systems as well as EASA Standard Changes. It therefore can be installed into a broad range of aircraft without re-certification.
AIR Connect creates a wireless network (WiFi®) and transmits data from aircraft systems (RS232) over the air directly to Apps. Many iOS®- and Android Apps are capable of displaying and using such data. Examples for data are current GPS-position, pressure altitude, traffic or engine data.
AIR Connect is very small, light-weight and easy to install. It can be placed virtually anywhere in the cockpit. Remote antennas with cables are available if connect shall be installed in a remote location.
AIR Connect comes with a cable (D-SUB 9 to RJ45) that allows for easy plug and play connection to many FLARM®-compatible collision avoidance devices.
TRX-1500 is a collision avoidance system for hidden/remote installation. The system combines ADS-B and Transponder reception with a FLARM® transmitter and receiver. It features many interface options and is capable of sending traffic data to compatible traffic displays and portable moving-maps as well as professional avionics systems making integration into existing cockpits easy.
TRX-1500 receives the exact 3D-position of FLARM® and ADS-B Traffic as well as distance and relative altitude of Mode-S transponders. Additionally the own position is sent out to all FLARM® compatible systems - over 25.000 in use worldwide.
Many functions of the new AIR Traffic Display 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 list of new and unique functions to increase safety. A new radar symbology helps differentiating gliders from powered aircraft. The new alert view helps to avoid misinterpretations in conflicting traffic situations. Traffic is also monitored after signal loss with a tracking of its probable position.
Traffic is indicated in a "radar-style" screen. The range can be adjustet using a rotary knob from 500m to 32km radius. The own aircraft (magenta) and other received traffic are shown with aircraft symbols.
The new alert screen has been designed as a result of current research. It helps reducing potential for misconceptions, especially in situations with high bank angles of the own aircraft. The screen is easy to interpret, even for crews who are unfamiliar to flying with traffic warning systems.
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.
Targets on the radar-view can be selected using a rotary knob. Pilots can actively select a target to review detailed target information such as vertical separation or distance. The integrated database delivers in-detail infos on targets such as registration or aircraft type. Targets of special interest can be marked in different colors for easier recognition.
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.
The user interface can be switched to a dark mode. Especially when flying at night, the dark user interface helps avoiding distractions. Some users also prefer the dark user interface in daytime. Especially if other black displays are used in the same panel, AIR Traffic Display shows a familiar face.
Sometimes airspace is really crowded, so is the display. Finding special targets can take very long. AIR Traffic Display uses softkeys for fast and convenient selection of up to four special targets like teammates or friends.
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 (little plus or minus sign) - helping to easily interpret the traffic situation.
Not all functions shown are included with delivery of the respective units. Obstacle functions require a valid obstacle database which may lead to additional costs.
TRX-1500 is only capable of receiving Mode-S traffic in horizontal and vertical range. The direction of Mode-S targets is not detectable.
Traffic systems can never provide an absolute protection from collisions or dangerous approximations.
