Abstract: THE AIR TRANSPORT ASSOCIATION Collision Avoidance System is in its final stages, and a number of programs have been conducted over the last year to verify and confirm assumptions made in the system. The results of these programs are discussed in this paper, and the verification of system concepts and warning logic is discussed based on : (1) A computer simulation program to verify the system parameters, accuracies, and maneuver times; (2) A program to verify pilot capability to observe and react to the CAS displays under instrument flight load conditions in airline cockpit simulators; (3) the work done by NAFEC in analyzing probability of alarm under real-life conditions; and (4) the final proof-of-the-pudding flight test that was conducted last fall on the CAS systems supplied by three electronics companies.
