TCAS - To Avoid or Not?

#1 Post by llondel » Tue Jun 30, 2020 5:16 am

Interesting article in The Register today about how TCAS could be vulnerable to spoofing, so you'd be flying along and get an alert when there was nothing around.

https://www.theregister.com/2020/06/30/ ... e_systems/

It references a paper:
https://arxiv.org/pdf/2006.14679.pdf

It seems they can do it in a lab but are some way from demonstrating that it can be done in the real world.

Creating ghosts in the machine. I suspect it would be relatively easy to do.

Interesting article, paper and thread.
