Garmin® Introduces GTX 3000 TCAS II/ACAS II-Compatible and ADS-B Compliant Transponder for Business and Regional Aircraft

GTS3000Garmin is announcing the GTX 3000, our latest Mode-S transponder designed to accommodate the environmental and operational demands of transport category aircraft.

The Garmin GTX 3000 is a remote-mount Mode S and ADS-B compliant transponder suitable for installation in Part 25 and upper-end Part 23 aircraft. The GTX 3000 implements ARINC, UF16 and DF16, and BDS(3,0) support for TCAS II operation. The system has high transmit power sufficient to accommodate longer antenna cable runs in larger aircraft while still meeting TSO requirements for transmit power. It is also designed and certified to meet DO-160 categories suitable for installation in extreme environmental conditions such as outside the pressure vessel.

The GTX 3000 offers:

•    Level 2 Data Link support
•    TCAS II compatibility
•    Antenna diversity operation
•    Extended squitter (ES)
•    Elementary Surveillance (ELS)
•    Enhanced Surveillance (EHS)
