The Ministry of Defence requirement is to reduce the risk of mid-air collision. The Enhanced Collision Awareness System will meet this by enhancing the pilot's situational awareness of collision threats when in congested airspace, enabling appropriate action to be taken and providing additional protection for Typhoon pilots.
