Rockwell Collins To Update ADS-Bs
Rockwell Collins (Booth No. 1043) is planning updates for its line of automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) transponders for business aircraft. The TDR-94D-409, offered primarily as a retrofit solution for the company’s TDR-94/94D transponders which equip more than 15,000 aircraft, is now available to comply with the new ADS-B mandate in Australia and the pending 2009 restrictions in Canada’s Hudson Bay. The company also announced a planned update to its TSS-4100 traffic surveillance system. The unit, which combines the TCAS, transponder and ADS-B capabilities of the TDR-94D and a TCAS-4000 into a single weight- and space-saving component, will have a software upgrade available in the near future that will add ADS-B in functionality.
