UK-based avionics firm BAE Systems has secured contracts from European airlines TAROM and MaviGok Aviation (MGA) to upgrade traffic collision and avoidance systems (TCAS) on 737 and 757 aircraft.

The TCAS 7.1 anti-collision software, which will be mandatory from December 1, 2015, aims to improve safety in situations where two aircraft are either ascending or descending simultaneously, or to improve pilot response when they are required to adjust vertical speed.

Romanian flag carrier TAROM will upgrade the system in its fleet of eight 737s, comprising 737-300 and 737-700 next generation aircraft.

Meanwhile Turkish-based MGA will upgrade its fleet of 14 737-800 and 757-200 aircraft, operated by UTAIR Russia, Katekavia, and UTAIR Ukraine.
