Document Title: TSO-C199 - Light Aircraft Surveillance Equipment (LASE)
Summary: The LASE has been previously referred to as the LPSE, Low Powered Surveillance Equipment. This technical standard order (TSO) is for manufacturers applying for a TSO authorization (TSOA) or letter of design approval (LODA) and describes the minimum performance requirements what Light Aircraft Surveillance Equipment (LASE) must first meet for approval and identification with the applicable TSO marking. The intent of an LASE device is to increase safety within the National Air Space (NAS) by encouraging the voluntary equipage of a low cost, compact, easy to install device that will allow other aircraft equipped with collision avoidance systems and traffic advisory systems to track and display the LASE aircraft. LASE devices are intended to be used on aircraft that are exempted from carrying a transponder or Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) equipment, such as gliders, balloons and aircraft without electrical systems defined in 14 CFR § 91.215 (b), and 14 CFR § 91.225 (b) respectively. LASE devices are also designed to work with collision avoidance systems such as intended Traffic Advisory System (TAS) and Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System II, (TCAS II). LASE equipment will not allow users to access to transponder or ADS-B rule airspace without prior approval from Air Traffic Control (ATC) as outlined in 14 CFR § 91.215 (d) and 14 CFR § 91.225 (g).
