Our CAS 67A ACAS II Enhanced
is simply the perfect predictive tool, wherever you fly. It helps
extend crew awareness further in front of the aircraft. It provides
traffic alerts and resolution advisories. And it also directs
the pilot's visual scan, revealing targets they might otherwise
This forward-looking approach
to collision avoidance started in 1955, when Dr. J. S. Morrell
of Bendix published "The Physics of Collisions." Including
the algorithm that defines the rate of closure between approaching
aircraft, this seminal work became the basis for the development
of all collision avoidance systems (CAS).
Through the 1960s and 1970s,
we led the way in collision avoidance, developing prototype systems
for the U.S. Army and FAA. In the 1980s, when TCAS II was mandated
for the airlines, we were ready with patented hardware that surpassed
FAA requirements for signal processing and accuracy.
Today with its advanced capability,
the CAS 67A ACAS II Enhanced serves as a cornerstone of the upcoming
Free Flight architecture, embodying the Future Aeronautical Navigation
System (TANS) concept (GATM/GANS for military applications).
And as one of the AXS Safety Solutions, CAS 67A ACAS II Enhanced
provides access to Honeywell's full range of flight technologies,
including EGPWS, weather radar and data recorders.
