STATE-OF-THE-ART radar altitude and digital signal processing
Designed to mitigate 5G interference, the Terrain Series radar altimeters feature the first major upgrade in radar altimetry solutions since the 1970s:• Eliminate spurious terrestrial datalink spectrum interference including 5G, identified by an RTCA Special Committee to interfere with RF spectrums
• Retrofit capability with legacy aircraft - utilize existing antennas, control heads, and cabling as needed
• Robust, reliable, and rugged enclosure designed for use in mission-critical, military-grade environments
• Interfaces with standalone RAD-40 and RAD-45 display indicators for smooth and accurate LED AGL readings
• Single and Dual Install kits available
The DAL B-rated RA 6500 radar altimeter is certified to TSO-C87a and ETSO-2C87, and is approved to DO-160G and DO-178C Level B.
Supports Ethernet, RS-485/422, RS-232, ARINC 429, and legacy ARINC 552 connectivity for easy-to-install adoption onboard Part 29 and business jet aircraft.

Radar altimeter accessories
Designed for applications such as helicopter and seaplane operations where accuracy is critical, our Radar Altimeters provide precise AGL information from 2,500 feet to ground level.
Available as a standard or night vision goggle (NVG) capable display, the RAD-40 offers an LED readout of AGL information.
Available as a standard or night vision goggle (NVG) capable display, the RAD-45 offers an LED readout of AGL and trend information..
The FTG-410 gives pilots important audio alerts when operating at low altitude, at nighttime, over water, or rough terrain.
TRUE ALTITUDE. TRUE SAFETY.
Robust, reliable, high-integrity, and easy-in-install radar altimeters.
DESIGNED WITH THE FUTURE OF YOUR fleet IN MIND
“The design represents the forward thinking, future proof technology that FreeFlight Systems is known for. The Terrain family is designed for robust operation in future environments and platforms, while offering a simple retrofit path for replacement of older, less capable altimeters in service today.”
