See the same radar traffic your ATC controller is watching – with the GTX 33/ES remote-mounted Mode S digital transponder. This IFR-certified unit features traffic datalink capability and also meets the European mandate for Mode S level 2 surveillance. The GTX 33/ES is an all solid-state design, which makes for lower power consumption and reduced heat emissions. The transmitter delivers up to 250 watts of nominal power output. And other highlights include remote ident and auto standby, a Traffic Information Services (TIS) interface, plus altitude monitor with voice alerts.
Leading the way with ADS-B
With available ES, or Extended Squitter, Garmin has taken the lead in providing an affordable pathway to ADS-B compliance for the FAA’s proposed Next Generation airspace system. Using precise GPS-referenced positioning information, the extended squitter technology enables transponders to automatically transmit more accurate, and more useful, traffic surveillance data – including aircraft flight ID, position, altitude, velocity, climb/descent, and heading information.
Enhanced traffic surveillance
Certified to TSO-C166a standards for 1090 MHz extended squitter transmission, Garmin’s GTX 33/ES improves upon the existing transponder query system – while working seamlessly with existing ATC protocols. The ADS-B reports provide ground controllers with considerably faster updates than traditional radar. And by simultaneously broadcasting this information to TAS or TCAS equipped pilots, it enables them to essentially see the same traffic picture for their location that ATC is watching on the ground. Thus, with everyone in the ADS-B loop watching and reacting to the same flight trajectories, safe separation is far easier to maintain.
