ACAS TAS 610 Avidyne™
Applicable to version(s) : B
The ACAS TAS 610 is a traffic advisory system which provides visual and acoustic information to the flight crew when traffic signals have been received.
Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH proposes the installation of Avidyne TAS610 which is an active interrogation onboard air traffic detection system used to identify potential collision threats. The TAS610 monitors the horizontal and vertical separation of aircrafts and warns the flight crew when the calculated time to closest approach (CPA) of the intruder meets a certain threshold (15 to 30 seconds). Aircraft with non-Mode C transponder can provide range information only. The TAS610 does not detect aircraft without operating transponders.
The Traffic Advisory System (TAS) acts as a traffic-warning information system. The information will be generated by the TAS-Processor-Unit which is installed in the rear electronic compartment. The information will be visualized using the already installed GNS430 Display on the cockpit panel. An acoustic warning can be switched on/off, using a switch installed in the series centre console LACU. An amber colored warning light will appear in the helicopter warning panel. A Mute Switch is located on the pilot and co-pilot Stick.
