Embraer has certified a new traffic collision alert and avoidance system (TCAS) and a terrain awareness and warning system (TAWS) for its Phenom 100 light jet.

The TCAS equipment, which increases crew awareness of approaching aircraft, is being supplied by Aviation Communications and Surveillance Systems. TAWS, which will be supplied by Garmin, seeks to prevent controlled flight into terrain accidents. Both systems are now standard on the Phenom 100, which features a Garmin G1000-based avionics suite.
