The DAL B-rated RA 5500 and 6500 radar altimeters are certified to TSO-C87a and ETSO-2C87, and are approved to DO-160G and DO-178C Level B.

MULTI-INTERFACE

Supports Ethernet, RS-485/422, RS-232, ARINC 429, and ARINC 552 connectivity for easy adoption onboard Part 29 and business jet aircraft.

The landscape of radar altimetry is changing

The FCC recently approved the use of a previously reserved radio frequency (RF) spectrum in the lower C Band (3.7 Ghz - 3.98 Ghz) in support of 5G systems deployment throughout the United States. In practice, this means that the spectrum, previously reserved for low power applications, will now be available to the telecommunications industry for high power transmissions. These high power transmissions have been shown to affect the ability of radar altimeters to accurately provide flight crews with altitude measurement readings. These altitude readings are critical to the aviation industry for safe approach and landing operations, for both manned and unmanned aviation. As such, many of the radar altimeters currently fielded by operators today may experience performance degradations and incorrect altitude readings - an alarming cause for concern in an industry renowned for safety.
