Air Berlin has specified the TCAS 3000 Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance system from ACSS for its 85 Boeing 737NG aircraft on order, the German airline said. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The TCAS 3000 gives operators the ability to upgrade to other capabilities, including Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B). Air Berlin also selected the XS-950 Air Transport Data Link Transponder from ACSS for this installation. ACSS, a joint venture of L-3 Communications and Thales Avionics based in Phoenix, announced last year that Air Berlin’s order of 60 Airbus A320s will feature T2CAS, ACSS’s combined TCAS and terrain awareness warning system.
