Auto ACAS tests finished, USAF awaiting final report
U.S. Air Force officials are awaiting the final report on tests of the Automatic Air Collision Avoidance System, or Auto ACAS, which is expected to be completed by the end of March.
Auto ACAS is a computer program that detects a potential mid-air collision and takes control of the aircraft's autopilot system to avoid it. Final in-air testing wrapped up in August in Lockheed Martin F-16s. The Swedish government and the U.S. Air Force worked jointly on the project.
