Abstract: An airborne collision avoidance system, using the existing transponder equipment of the Secondary Surveillance Radar system as its basic cooperative element, has been under development since the mid 1970’s. In June 1981, the FAA Administrator announced the FAA’s commitment to implementing the Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TACS), with a low cost system for general aviation and a more sophisticated system for air carriers. This paper summarizes the status of the FAA’s TCAS program.
