The TRA-3000 is especially effective in flying search and rescue missions, forestry operations, pipeline maintenance, offshore helicopter operations, aeromedical emergency services, border patrol, and electronic news gathering
operations. Sending a continuous signal from a single antenna, the TRA-3000 Radar Altimeter provides precise AGL information from 2500 feet down to 40 feet. The transmitter/receiver and antenna fit in a single, lightweight, aerodynamic unit that can be easily installed on the fuselage or under the wing. Innovative design reduces the size and weight of the system and significantly increases transmitter efficiency.
The included TRI-40 Indicator is a panel mounted indicator that provides essential information when there are no visual clues to the landscape surrounding the airport or the pilot’s flight path. The indicator displays the AGL altitude and the pilot’s preselected decision height (DH) in a bright, LED readout, and provides an audible warning when descending below the DH. A test button sends a 40-foot altitude code to the indicator to test the display and warning alerts at any time. The TRI-40 Indicator also includes
a visual and audible gear-up warning when the aircraft is below 100 feet. A trip-point output allows the pilot to activate additional alerts every 100 feet up to 800 feet.
