    INTRODUCTION The Traffic Function of the Bendix/King KMD 550/850 Multi Function Display allows for the display and control of several models of traffic avoidance systems. Some examples are TCAS I (Traffic Collision Avoidance System), TCAS II, TAS (Traffic Avoidance System) and TIS (Traffic Information Service).

    KMD 550/850 TRAFFIC PAGE (TAS/TCAS) OPERATIONAL CONTROLS MODE - Toggles the altitude tag between relative or absolute altitude as shown in Figures 1 and 2. Operation in the absolute mode is limited to 15 sec- onds. This key may be enabled or disabled in system configuration.
  • Page 13: Tcas/tas Symbology

    TCAS/TAS SYMBOLOGY NON-THREAT TRAFFIC An open white diamond indicates that an intruder is not yet considered a threat. For specifics on relative distance and altitude that defines this symbol, please refer the pilot’s guide that is provided with the traffic avoidance system. This one is 200 feet above your own altitude, climbing at 500 feet per minute or greater.
  • Page 14: Off-scale" Traffic

    “OFF-SCALE” TRAFFIC TA or RA traffic that is beyond the selected range will be displayed as half the appropriate symbol at the edge of the display matching the bearing of the traffic. “NO-BEARING” TRAFFIC If the bearing of TA or RA traffic cannot be determined by the traffic avoidance system, no traffic symbol will...

    TCAS/TAS SYSTEM FAULTS NO DATA RECEIVED If the KMD 550/850 is not receiving any data from the TCAS or TAS sensor then the following screen will be displayed. This could indi- cate that power is not being pro- vided to the traffic avoidance system (e.g.
  • Page 19: Traffic Information Service (tis)

    TRAFFIC INFORMATION SERVICE (TIS) This section applies only to TIS systems. TIS is an alerting system (covered by US Pat. 6512975) that provides visibility to nearby traffic enhancing “see and avoid” collision avoidance. It’s purpose is to increase situational awareness by supplying information to assist in visually acquiring nearby aircraft.
  • Page 20: Tis Limitations

    TIS LIMITATIONS Traffic may not be displayed for one or more of the following reasons: 1. Radar site is out of service. If a TIS capable Mode S sensor is not in service for any reason, TIS is not available. See Figure 13 2.
  • Page 21 4. The other aircraft is within the “Cone of Silence”. So, remember, there may be aircraft within your alert area, but if they are not seen by the radar site they will not show on your display. 5. Your aircraft is below radar coverage. With no obstructions and flat terrain, the coverage floor is about 2,000-3,000 feet at 60 miles and 4,000-6,000 feet at 100 miles.
  • Page 22: Tis Normal Operation

    TIS NORMAL OPERATION NOTE: TIS availability may be intermittent during turns or other maneu- vering where the aircraft structure can block the line of sight between the Mode S radar and the Mode S transponder antenna. To display the TIS traffic page press the TRFC function select key.
  • Page 23: Kmd 550/850 Traffic Page (tis) Operational Controls

    KMD 550/850 TRAFFIC PAGE (TIS) OPERATIONAL CONTROLS MODE - Toggles the altitude tag between relative or absolute altitude as shown in Figures 16 and 17. Operation in the absolute mode is limited to 15 sec- onds. RNGL/RNGM - Advances the indicator to the next range.
  • Page 24: Tis Symbology

    TIS SYMBOLOGY TIS symbols have a track pointer which are not on TCAS/TAS symbols. The track pointer shows the estimated ground track direction the traffic is moving (in 45° increments) relative to your own aircraft. PROXIMITY INTRUDER TRAFFIC A filled white diamond indicates that the intruding aircraft has reached the proximity traffic threshold as defined by the TIS system, but is still not considered a threat.
  • Page 25: Traffic Advisory While In Map Display

    TRAFFIC ADVISORY WHILE IN MAP DISPLAY If a Traffic Advisory presents itself while in the Map Display a yellow TRFC will be displayed as shown in Figure 18. If AUTO-POP-UP is enabled, a TA will cause the Traffic display to be pre- sented automatically.
