Additionally, other information can be obtained by properly
equipped aircraft to include notices to airmen (NOTAM),

Radio Altimeters
A radio altimeter, commonly referred to as a radar altimeter,
is a system used for accurately measuring and displaying the
height above the terrain directly beneath the aircraft. It sends
a signal to the ground and processes the timed information.

Figure 3-49. An aircraft equipped with ADS will receive identification, altitude in hundreds affect (above or below using + or -),
direction of the traffic, and aircraft descent or climb using an up or down arrow. The yellow target is an illustration of how a
non-ADS equipped aircraft would appear on an ADS-equipped aircraft's display.
