Sandel Avionics last month reported it has shipped its 1,000th ST3400 terrain awareness and warning system (TAWS), a 3-ATI-size unit that includes a TAWS database, processor and color display in a single panel-mount package that
meets class-A and -B terrain-alerting requirements. Also incorporating RMI functionality, the ST3400 serves as a drop-in replacement for conventional RMI units, giving operators a single display that can accommodate terrain maps, topographic maps, navigation waypoint maps and TCAS data.
The base ST3400 has a list price of $34,500 in class-A configuration and $20,950 in class-B configuration. Sandel said it has increased production to ensure that an adequate supply of systems is available for last-minute orders in the run-up to the TAWS mandate deadline of March 29.
