Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems

MPG Products & Solutions support Connecting & Protecting People® on-board aerospace applications, both commercial and defense. We design and build critcal components that function within an aircrafts TCAS or traffic collision avoidance system. An aircraft TCAS system operates by monitoring the airspace around an aircraft using secondary surveillance radar transponder signals, but operates independently of ground-based equipment to provide guidance to each of the pilots involved.
