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.

Elbit Systemsí 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) avionics upgrade suite or as a stand-alone component.
