Abstract:

A unique airborne aircraft collision avoidance system concept is presented which assures adequate separation from the largest possible percentage of potential collision threats. The concept operates in all airspace as a compatible backup to the present and evolving ATC system, and is acceptable to the pilot and the user community. The system concept capitalizes on the aviation communitys large existing investment in ATCRBS transponders and on the ground based beacon surveillance system network for the basic sources of the collision avoidance information. The appendices in this volume include Garble BCAS Mode Selection Traffic Models and Aircraft densities Radar coverage and BCAS Accuracy Analysis.
