Merlin Labs, MIT Collaborate on Next Generation TCAS

Merlin Labs Teams With MIT Lincoln Laboratory on New TCAS Merlin, an aviation technology working on developments for the future of automated flight, announced its partnership with MIT Lincoln Laboratory (LL) in the first step towards an operational next generation collision avoidance technology. This partnership will see the two organizations explore the commercial adoption of the Airborne Collision Avoidance System Xu (ACAS Xu) on unmanned aircraft systems. The partnership will focus on the initial integration and further implementation of the ACAS Xu software standard, RTCA DO-386, with the Merlin Pilot, allowing Merlin to deliver enhanced automated collision avoidance measures based on the outputs from ACAS Xu that exceed the standards of the National Airspace System.
