Garmin unveils GPS 3000 to ease ADS-B Out headaches
As the deadline for ADS-B Out creeps ever closer, operators are seeking swift solutions to meet requirements. Garmin's GPS 3000 works alongside existing avionics and can support enroute and approach navigation.
Garmin, Atlas and FTI Engineering are cooperating to install the GPS 3000.

Garmin International has introduced the GPS 3000, a high-integrity GPS position sensor that seamlessly interfaces to existing avionics to help meet Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out requirements. The GPS 3000 is also designed as a WAAS/SBAS position source for select flight management systems. Aircraft that are eligible to utilise the GPS 3000 as an ADS-B position source include the Embraer E135/E145 and the Legacy 600/650. EASA STC for the GPS 3000 in these aircraft is currently available from FTI Engineering, in cooperation with Atlas Air Service in Germany, and can be installed throughout the entire Garmin dealer network.

“We continue to lead the industry with the most fielded ADS-B solutions that span all segments of aviation, including a wide range of commercial, defence, regional and business aircraft,” says VP of aviation sales and marketing Carl Wolf. “We are thrilled to provide these aircraft with a solution that is cost-effective and is an easy to install alternative to the existing avionics manufacturer's service bulletin.”

The GPS 3000 is also designed to interface with select FMS to support GPS guidance throughout terminal, enroute and approach navigation. When configured appropriately, the GPS 3000 is capable of providing position information to an existing FMS to meet requirements for Required Navigation Performance and can support GPS-based vertical approach navigation, such as LPV approach guidance.

FAA validation of the STC is pending.
