Small, Low Cost Proximity Detection System
tells ANN that they will release TS Micro, the latest in an
expanding line of TrafficScope personal collision avoidance
avionics, in early September.
The TS Micro will retail for $289.00.
The Micro is an all-digital system which monitors traffic
threats with a 10-segment range display which indicates any
transponder-equipped aircraft within three to five miles. TS Micro
eliminates false alerts inherent to other analog alert systems and
operates with coast-to-coast nationwide coverage, as well as within
most other countries.
According to SureCheck
CEO, Jason Clemens, "We are excited to offer this refinement of our
technology, which sacrifices none of the accuracy TrafficScope has
become known for, but makes proximity detection available to
At only 1.1” high, 2.4” wide, and 3.7” long,
Micro is the first business card-sized unit, yet delivers big
features like zero false alerts, an all-digital system, 3-5 mile
range, 10-step resolution, a micro antenna, and 8+ hours of battery
life from two Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. The complete kit
includes four batteries and a quick charger.
SureCheck President Zane Hovey stresses that, "TS Micro utilizes
the same complex algorithms and extensive digital signal filtering
criteria found in the more feature-filled VRX unit, which displays
range and altitude, but in a much more compact, basic hand-held
