Aircraft Certification Service (AIR)
Draft Technical Standard Orders (TSOs) Open for Comment

Summary: This TSO provides minimum performance standards for Airborne Collision Avoidance Systems (ACAS) Xa/Xo. The ACAS Xa/Xo equipment provides a reliable airborne traffic alert and collision avoidance system (TCAS) function for transponder-equipped aircraft. It replaces TSO-C119e TCAS II systems. It uses the latest technology to increase safety margins, to allow use of other data sources (such as automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast [ADS-B] and ownship position), to better tune the surveillance logic and to optimize the collision avoidance logic. All these enhancements support NextGen operations.
