Airborne collision avoidance system (ACAS): advantages and drawbacks for the management of air space
Airborne collision Avoidance Systems (ACAS) were supposed to dramatically increase safety of air space when they were introduced in the last decade. Nevertheless, statistics have recently shown that these expectations, in terms of reduction of mid-air collisions, have not been attained. These considerations have led to the development of a simulation tool for prospective analyses of alarms emitted by this system. The tool is based on a model of human-machine-environment interaction that enables the analysis of conflict situations between two aircraft equipped with ACAS.
