Abstract

Runway incursions pose a significant threat to the continued safety of commercial aviation. In response, the Runway Collision Avoidance Function (RCAF) was developed by the University of Malta and evaluated at Cranfield University as part of the European Programme FLYSAFE. This paper discusses the design of experiment developed in preparation of the said evaluations, addressing the objectives of the test programme and explains how these objectives were met.
