To support the evaluation of aircraft encounters that involved Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS) alerts, EUROCONTROL has developed the Interactive Collision Avoidance Simulator (InCAS). It is a Microsoft Windows operative software tool for analysis and diagnosis of ACAS performance during aircraft encounters. It uses radar track data of the encounters as a basis and allows for the analysis of a set of variations in systems settings and pilot performance. The InCAS tool has been developed in an incremental way during the last 25 years. InCAS has a 32-bit architecture.
In order to fulfill SESAR Pj11 commitments, there is an urgent need to port InCAS to become a 64-bit application. Further, the present version of ACAS X software (“Run 15”) should be integrated to the ported version of InCAS, so that the version of ACAS can be evaluated in a European environment.
