b. Requirements.

1. In order to use TIS, the client and any intruder

aircraft must be equipped with the appropriate

cockpit equipment and fly within the radar coverage

of a Mode S radar capable of providing TIS.

Typically, this will be within 55 NM of the sites

depicted in FIG 4−5−5, Terminal Mode S Radar Sites.

ATC communication is not a requirement to receive

TIS, although it may be required by the particular

airspace or flight operations in which TIS is being

used.
