Aircrafts depend on air traffic controllers and also make an effort in not colliding against each other.For the sake of achieving this, airborne traffic alert and collision avoidance systems (TCAS) have been devised and implemented in most commercial and military aircraft to provide air traffic controller independent conflict detection and resolution capabilities. The task of the TCAS is to monitor air traffic in the neighborhood of the aircraft and provide the pilot with information about vicinity aircraft with which it may conflict and advisories on how to resolve these conflicts.
