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.
PROXIMITY INTRUDER TRAFFIC
A filled white diamond indicates that the intruding aircraft has
reached the next proximity threshold defined by the traffic
avoidance system, but is still not 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 intruder is now 400 feet below your aircraft
and climbing at 500 feet per minute or greater.
TRAFFIC ADVISORY (TA)
A symbol change to a filled yellow circle indicates that the
intruding aircraft is considered to be potentially hazardous.
Depending on your own altitude the system will display a TA
when time to Closest Point of Approach (CPA) is reached as
defined by traffic avoidance system. For specifics on CPA as defined by
the system, please refer the pilot's guide that is provided with the traffic
avoidance system. Here the intruder is 100 feet above your aircraft,
descending at 500 feet per minute or greater.
RESOLUTION ADVISORY (RA)
This symbol will only be displayed when the KMD 550/850 is
interfaced with a TCAS II system. A solid red square indicates
that the intruding aircraft is projected to be a collision threat.
TCAS II calculates that the intruder has reached a point where
a Resolution Advisory is necessary. The time to CPA with the
intruder, depending on your altitude, has been reached as defined by the
traffic avoidance system. For specifics on CPA as defined by the
system, please refer the pilot's guide that is provided with the traffic
avoidance system. The symbol appears together with an appropriate
audio warning and a vertical maneuver indication on the RA/VSI. This
aircraft is now 100 feet below your altitude and still descending at 500
feet per minute or greater.
NOTE: An intruder must be reporting altitude in order to generate an RA.
Therefore, the RA symbol will always have an altitude tag.
