Airborne Collision Avoidance System X (ACAS X) is a family of future collision avoidance systems. ACAS XA is intended to replace the current Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System for large aircraft as well as provide collision avoidance system for General Aviation (GA) and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAV). In this paper we present an overview of a next-generation onboard safety system and its extensions to other types of aircraft which have not yet been covered by collision avoidance systems.
