The TAWS+ Terrain Awareness Warning System from ACSS brings advanced terrain prediction and avoidance technology into your cockpit in a stand-alone package providing superior functionality at lower cost. In applications where ACSS's combined TAWS and Traffic Alert and Collisions Avoidance System (TCAS), the T2CASTM, is not needed, TAWS+ is the safer terrain solution.
TAWS+ has the patented Terrain Advisory Line (TAL), "Avoid Terrain" and Engine-Out features. These advanced functions encompass terrain and airport databases. Available with standard aircraft climb rate, TAWS+ offers a unique set of enhanced features in a 2-MCU line-replaceable unit (LRU). An optional GPS card can be installed in the same unit, providing even greater situational awareness capability. The same capability is available as part of T2CAS or the Protector+TM.
Building on the TAWS+ capabilities, TAWS+performance is a step beyond conventional TAWS offering the higher level of safety afforded by basing alerts on an aircraft's actual ability to climb.
Sophisticated modeling of aircraft climb capabilities provides the most complete picture for improved situational awareness. For a higher level of safety, turn to TAWS+performance.
Exclusive Feature - Terrain Advisory Line
In addition to aural and visual alerts, TAWS+ provides enhanced situational awareness with our unique Terrain Advisory Line (TAL) feature. Extending the conventional TAWS cautionary terrain segment - relative to the current aircraft altitude but providing no idea of where alerts will occur - the TAL reaches out to 30° on either side of the aircraft flight path and out as far as two minutes in front of the aircraft, providing crew with an enhanced indication of potential hazards in the current flight path. The TAL allows pilots to think...not just react.
