The marketing is that the "A" units will paint ADS-B targets on your display, and correctly merge them with transponder sensed targets.

From the FAQs it appears that the referenced ADS-B traffic is just the 1090 ADS-B out traffic data direct from other aircraft, that the 600xA picks up through its own antennas, and uses to correct/sharpen the sensed data and extend the range?

What about 1090/978 traffic data (TIS-B) received from a secondary internal data source, like a 978/1090 transceiver. Will there be some way to intelligently merge that traffic data with a TAS60x unit, or perhaps only a TAS60xA unit?

The displays available are the IFD540 (soon) and ASPEN PFD.

The TAS-A will receive both ground station and air-to-air 1090 MHz ADS-B information.

 

....and the 1090 ADS-B out traffic data direct from other aircraf,t that the 600xA picks up through its own antennas, and uses to correct/sharpen the sensed data and extend the range?  This is one of the benefits.  What about 1090 & 978?  It will receive 1090 MHz Extended Squitter through Air-to-Air, it will receive 978 MHz through ADS-R from ADS-B ground stations (received via 1090 MHz), and it will receive TIS-B from ground stations (received via 1090 MHz).  You'll need that A suffix.

Ah, so in terms of operational benefit, the "A" units will largely eliminate the need for having a separate ADS-B transceiver, at least for traffic -- as long as you are participating, else the ground stations will not transmit traffic data to you.

So a 60xA unit + mode S ES like the 340 will make you compliant, and you will get all the info you need.

I get weather elsewhere, so FIS-B is not important to me.

Any timeframe for the A functionality in the TAS units? I presume it needs a trip back to the shop.
