Honeywell introduced two new collision avoidance and ground proximity warning systems intended for light to medium turbines airplanes. Both the KTA 970 TCAS I and KMH 980 TCAS I/Class B TAWS are TSO’d and capable of tracking up to 60 aircraft and displaying as many as 30 aircraft at ranges up to 40 nm. The KTA 970 lists for $25,752 and the KMH 980 lists for $32,992. The new units are designed to interface with standard EFIS and TCAS displays. Units are scheduled to be available later this month. Meanwhile, Sandel is awaiting approval for its TAWS (see page 64).
