FreeFlight Systems has received a
TSO-C145a for its Model 1204 GPS/WAAS Sensor.
The 1204 GPS/WAAS Sensor provides position, velocity and time to
integrated navigation systems, FMS, TAWS and other systems that
require GPS input. The 1204 also provides integrity through the use
of Fault Detection and Exclusion and supports oceanic and domestic
en route, terminal, non-precision approach, and departure
The twelve-channel receiver has low susceptibility to comm radio
jamming and interference. Consisting of only a sensor and antenna,
FreeFlight claims that "easy installation is a given."
FreeFlight Systems, previously Trimble Navigation, manufactures
a broad range of best value GPS navigation systems, GPS/WAAS
sensors and radar altimeters. Recent GPS product enhancements
include WAAS, SAR, TAWS interface and P-RNAV.
Recently introduced, their new RA 4000 radar altimeter supports
the new generation EFIS systems.
