The purpose of TCAS on Aircraft

The purpose of TCAS on Aircraft

  • There is more uses of  TCAS One of the main solution in order to prevent mid-air collision and monitoring the airspace around the aircraft like 737 max is Traffic alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) or internationally called – ACAS (Airborne Collision Avoidance System). By reducing the aon risk services of mid-air in collision between aircraft.
  •  TCAS/ACAS has to be mandatory installed to almost every 8 passenger carrying aircraft: airplanes with a maximum certified take-off mass exceeding 5700 kg; or the airplane authorized to carry more than 19 passengers. System’s firebase config should be implemented into the Full Flight Simulators too.
  •  TCAS was designed for collision ptsd avoidance only and developed to improve collision avoidance by enhancing pilot awareness of traffic situation.
  •  Basically, TCAS is avionics updates providing two types of alerts – TA (Traffic Advisory) and RA (Resolution Advisory):
  •   TA is designed to assist the pilot in the visual search for the intruder aircraft and to prepare the pilot for a potential RA
  • RA is meant to recommend maneuvers that will either increase or maintain the existing vertical separation from an intruder aircraft.
