Dynon Avionics has added the ability to alert and display air traffic graphically, TCAS-like, within its SkyView products.
Traffic will show up on SkyView’s moving map and synthetic vision displays using standard TCAS I symbols. SkyView will identify the location, severity of threat, distance, vertical separation and heading of any aircraft within the traffic system range. Pilots will have immediate situational awareness of traffic that they can easily track, Dynon officials said.
Within the United States, SkyView displays TIS traffic when connected to Dynon’s SV-XNPNR-261 or SV-XPNDR-262 Mode-S transponders, or a Garmin GTX 330 Mode-S transponder. TIS is a ground-based system available in all Class B and some Class C airspace where most traffic conflicts arise. It uses the same radar that is used by controllers.
SkyView is also capable of receiving traffic information from a Zaon XRX passive traffic receiver, a Navworx ADS-B receiver, a Trig ADS-B receiver, or any device that outputs the industry standard GTX 330 TIS traffic format. This capability allows SkyView’s new traffic feature to be used anywhere in the world, utilizing different traffic receiver technologies, according to company officials.
Dynon’s traffic feature is included in Version 2.6 software, which is now available on all new SkyView units and can be downloaded free by all SkyView owners.
