Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS)
CNO Policy Memorandum on Aircraft Safety System Avionics, 9 Nov 99, mandates the installation of Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) equipment on new and existing Navy aircraft. For passenger and troop carrying aircraft, the CNO directs the use of commercial standard systems for comparable aircraft.

TCAS provides time-critical aural and visual warnings that cue appropriate pilot responses to prevent Mid-Air collisions. A typical commercial TCAS II system consists of a TCAS Processor, TCAS directional antennas, control panel, displays, Mode S/IFF transponder, and Mode S/IFF transponder antennas.

Current customers include C-130T, C-2, KC-130F/R/T, UH-3, and U/VP-3A.
