Following extensive flight testing and
verification by Special Operations pilots, Elbit Systems’ new
Terrain Following and Terrain Avoidance (TF/TA) system has been
declared operational onboard C-130 aircraft of an unidentified Air
Force.

Elbit
Systems’ TF/TA system enables military transport aircraft to
safely conduct low altitude flights in Instrument Meteorological
Conditions (IMC), significantly extending their operational
envelop.

The TF/TA system combines high
resolution ground mapping data from an onboard Terrain Following
Radar that is complimented by a digital terrain elevation database, offering high maneuverability.

 The system’s real-time
terrain data processing and advanced algorithms, take into account
the aircraft’s flight performance characteristics, thus enabling
anticipation of variations in the terrain and providing optimized
climb/descent commands to keep the aircraft in the selected
altitude for the entire mission.

Elbit Systems’
TF/TA is offered to military air-lifters and helicopters and can
be implemented as part of the company’s basic Communication,
Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM)
avionics upgrade suite or as a stand-alone component.
