SOME FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF AIRBORNE COLLISION WARNING

Emory Lakatos

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The subject of airborne collision warning has taken on a great interest as a result of a tragic event occurring during the past year. I am, of course, referring to the collision of two airliners over the Grand Canyon. This event high-lighted a situation about which some people have been increasingly apprehensive over the past 10 years. The buildup in air traffic density has been such that a recent survey showed four near-misses per day reported by airline pilots. A CAA report analyzes "50 midair accident reports, selected at random, 1949-1954 inclusive." There were also a number of collisions with mountains, television towers, and power lines.
