Part Number :


GRA 5500
FEATURES
  • High-performance all digital radar altimeter
  • Used on transport category, helicopter, business and general aviation aircraft
  • Patent pending digital signal processing technology
  • Provides smooth altitude tracking resulting in consistent and highly accurate altitude above ground indication, even over environments like rough terrain, tree canopies, sand and choppy water
  • Works up to 2,500 ft above ground level
  • 1.5 foot accuracy
  • Simplified installation procedure
  • Eliminates the requirement for long lengths of antenna cables traditionally required in the installation of radar altimeters
  • Built-in self-test monitors continuously cross check data and system integrity, assuring the pilot of an accurate measurement of the height above ground
  • Industry-standard ARINC 429 interface allows the GRA 5500 to integrate with a breadth of Garmin integrated flight decks and flight displays (see Equipment Compatibility table below), as well as third-party products
  • Able to integrate with existing systems to enhance NVIS operations and fulfill the radar altimeter requirements for Class A TAWS, CAT II ILS operations and TCAS II/ACAS II
  • Compatible with Garmin's new TCAS II/ACAS II
  • Has been selected as standard equipment on new aircraft including Cessna Citation X, Citation Sovereign, Citation Latitude, Citation Longitude, and the Bell Helicopter 525 Relentless
  • Has received the FAA's Technical Standard Order (TSO) authorization
