An Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS) is primarily designed to avoid incidences of mid-air collision among aircraft. The system provides traffic advisories, resolution advisories, and reverse advisories, based on its type. It operates independently of ground-based equipment and air traffic control, and helps to identify incidences of potential air collision as well as suggests a suitable course of action to reduce the risk of collision. Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), Portable Collision Avoidance System (PCAS), and FLARM system are the technologies considered under the airborne collision avoidance system market.
This market study help vendors get detailed information regarding their competitors on the basis of their product offerings and business strategies. The report reviews major players that offer Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS) and outlines the findings and analysis on how well each vendor performs within our criteria.
Vendors that fall under this category generally receive high scores for most of the evaluation criteria. They have well-established product portfolios with strong market presence. They provide reputed products and services. They also have strong business strategies to strengthen their position in the Airborne Collision Avoidance Systems Market.
Dynamic differentiators are well-established vendors with strong business strategies. However, they have weaker product portfolios as compared to their competitors. They generally focus on a specific type of technology-related to a particular product.
Innovators are the vendors that have demonstrated substantial product innovations as compared to their competitors. They have an extensive product portfolio. However, they do not have strong growth strategies for their overall business.
Emerging companies are the vendors with niche product offerings, who have started to gain their foothold in the 3D radar market. They do not have strong business strategies as compared to other established vendors. They might be new entrants and may require some time before gaining significant traction in the market. ACAS X is the next-generation onboard safety system that detects and tracks other aircraft as well as assesses potential collision risks. Additionally, technological advancements and expansion of the aviation industry are expected to further drive the growth of the airborne collision avoidance system market in the near future. In the aviation industry, aircraft are manufactured and delivered to airlines with airborne collision avoidance systems already installed in them by the OEMs. This has become a suitable alternative for airline companies, as aftermarket modification becomes cumbersome for aircraft manufacturers after the delivery of aircraft. OEM component providers also offer the line-fit option, thereby saving the time consumed in the installation of aircraft components, after their delivery to airline companies. Additionally, airlines are not required to maintain a separate workforce for installation of retrofit components. Aircraft aftermarket components are primarily used in the maintenance and upgrade of aircraft. These components are supplied, once the aircraft is delivered to airlines. Aftermarket services include complete maintenance, repair, and overhaul of aircraft, specializing in both, metallic and composite repair techniques. For instance, when an aircraft is damaged by bird strike, the airline sends the damaged aircraft for maintenance, repair, and overhaul, which falls under aftermarket services. The refurbishing and replacement services offered by aftermarket companies fulfill all the necessary airborne collision avoidance system requirements.
