AN ACTIVE BEACON-BASED COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM CONCEPT (BCAS)

The concept of an active Beacon Collision Avoidance System (BCAS) is described in this paper. The design constraints of this air-to-air collision avoidance system are given, together with the system design which enables BCAS to minimize the critical problem of garble. Results from a dynamic aircraft traffic model simulation are presented and finally the possible extensions of BCAS to high density airspace and to a DABS/IPC environment are discussed.
