Aircraft need to be separated from other aircraft by either a minimum vertical distance of 1000ft or by a minimum horizontal distance of 5NM to avoid mid-air collisions. Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) work well as a tactical safety backups to avoid collision, but cannot perform separation assurance. This paper presents the design aspects of system that would predict separation infringement and provide flight crew with necessary guidance for maintaining separation. This paper discusses formulation of system function based on ADS-B, mathematical models, simulation and results. A system model has been implemented in MATLAB and various encounters with different speed ratios at various conflict angles has been fed as input to system model with a goal of avoidance and recovery to original waypoint. Both Heading and Speed maneuvers are evaluated and results are presented. The required strength of resolution maneuver as a function of conflict geometry is studied and automatic maneuver selection function is implemented in system model and maneuver selection function is evaluated with discussion of results.
