Garmin navigates Oshkosh traffic with GTS traffic series


Garmin GTS Traffic Antenna (2) Traffic; Eleven o’clock; High; Less than one mile. This is the type of warning that Garmin's new traffic systems will provide, and it's exactly what pilots need when they're flying through busy airspace. Our new traffic systems –  GTS 800, GTS 820 and GTS 850 — are unique for many reasons, but one of the most distinctive features is CLEAR CAS, a patent-pending technology that provides real-time information that is totally independent of radar-based air traffic control.

There are three distinct system configurations for the GTS series, and each model creates a 360-degree zone of detection around the aircraft so that pilots can see and identify targets in their airspace that may pose a collision hazard. The GTS 800 TAS is a lower-cost system offering 40 watts of transmit power and a range of up to 12 nautical miles. The GTS 820 TAS delivers 250 watts of transmit power and up to 40 nautical miles of interrogation range. The GTS 850 TCAS I features the same 250 watt performance as the GTS 820, and also meets the FAA’s TCAS I certification criteria. The GTS 820 and GTS 850 are installed in conjunction with a Garmin Mode S transponder

Another great feature of the GTS systems are the price. Starting at $9,995, the GTS series are affordable and within the reach of most general aviation pilots and their budgets.
