Conditions (IMC), significantly extending their operational
The TF/TA system combines high
resolution ground mapping data from an onboard Terrain Following
Radar that is complimented by a digital terrain elevation database, offering high maneuverability.
The systemís real-time
terrain data processing and advanced algorithms, take into account
the aircraftís flight performance characteristics, thus enabling
anticipation of variations in the terrain and providing optimized
climb/descent commands to keep the aircraft in the selected
altitude for the entire mission.
TF/TA is offered to military air-lifters and helicopters and can
be implemented as part of the companyís basic Communication,
Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM)
