Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The rapidly increasing probability of midair collisions occuring in the aviation environment is well known to everyone associated with aircraft collision prevention development activities. There have been a variety of programs, studies, products under development, products on the market, and committees aimed at solving the problem. None of them would apear to be sufficient in themselves to provide a valid, implementable solution. The problem is large and complex and cannot be solved piecemeal. This paper reviews some of the statistics describing the problem, some of the efforts in process to solve it, gives a case example of a special situation solution, and suggests a plan to develop a total solution.
