The traffic collision avoidance system TCAS is the latest to be introduced among pilot support systems. Depending on the TCAS type, the system is able to notify hazardous traffic conditions as well as to suggest manoeuvres to the pilot. In this work, the main features of TCAS are presented, and two system models are developed, one based on the actual logic implemented in the real system, and a new one based on fuzzy logic. Both models have been integrated in a simulation environment, particularly suitable to man-machine studies. A number of test cases, based on real situations, have been designed to study the TCAS effect in the approach to landing phase.
