Traffic collision avoidance system

A traffic collision avoidance system or traffic alert and collision avoidance system is an aircraft collision avoidance system designed to reduce the incidence of mid-air collisions between aircraft. It monitors the airspace around an aircraft for other aircraft equipped with a corresponding active transponder, independent of air traffic control, and warns pilots of the presence of other transponder-equipped aircraft which may present a threat of mid-air collision. It is a type of airborne collision avoidance system mandated by the International Civil Aviation Organization to be fitted to all aircraft with a maximum take-off mass of over 5,700 kg or authorized to carry more than 19 passengers. ACAS / TCAS is based on secondary surveillance radar transponder signals, and operates independently of ground-based equipment to provide advice to the pilot on potential conflicting aircraft.
