COST ANALYSIS OF AIRBORNE COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEMS (CAS) CONCEPTS

This report presents the results of the cost and operational evaluations developed for three CAS Concepts: the Honeywell AVOIDS, the McDonnell Douglas EROS, and the RCA SECANT. To provide a basis for assessing the economic impact of CAS on the various aviation communities, separate cost evaluations have also been developed for general aviation, commercial aviation, and the military. This report presents the expected cost of ownership to the individual aircraft owner and the cumulative life-cycle costs to the user communities, based on the competing manufacturers' data and independently developed electronics and installation cost data.
