An Open Anti Collision Protocol (OCAP) is crucial to ensure safety across various aerial activities involving small planes, drones, gliders, paragliders, and hang gliders.

The current reliance on FLARM, despite its contributions to safety, has led to concerns about market competition, innovation, and equitable access to safety technology.

An open protocol utilizing license-free ISM bands promises a more inclusive approach, making advanced anti-collision support accessible and affordable for all aviators and ensuring continuous technological advancement without drawbacks of a monopolistic market. It will enhance communication among different aircraft types and facilitate easy updates to improve safety features.

This project is funded by the BAZL (Swiss Federal Office for Civil Aviation, project number SFLV 2022-086) and three other institutions.
