Definition of Acas

What does Acas mean?


  1. [aviation] Airborne Collision Avoidance System
  2. [British] Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service


Acas: The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service is a Crown non-departmental public body of the Government of the United Kingdom. Its purpose is to improve organisations and working life through the promotion and facilitation of strong industrial relations practice. It may do this through a number of mediums such as arbitration or mediation, although the service is perhaps best known for its collective conciliation function - that is resolving disputes between groups of employees or workers, often represented by a trade union, and their employers. Acas is an independent and impartial organisation that does not side with a particular party, but rather will help the parties to reach suitable resolutions in a dispute.


Acas a.k.a. Acâș: Acâş is a rural municipality of 2,792 inhabitants situated in Satu Mare County, Romania. It is composed of four villages: Acâş, Ganaş, Mihăieni and Unimăt.


ACAS a.k.a. Traffic collision avoidance system: A traffic collision avoidance system or traffic alert and collision avoidance system is an aircraft collision avoidance system designed to reduce the incidence of mid-air collisions between aircraft. It monitors the airspace around an aircraft for other aircraft equipped with a corresponding active transponder, independent of air traffic control, and warns pilots of the presence of other transponder-equipped aircraft which may present a threat of mid-air collision. It is a type of airborne collision avoidance system mandated by the International Civil Aviation Organization to be fitted to all aircraft with a maximum take-off mass of over 5,700 kg or authorized to carry more than 19 passengers.
