indeed, the actual manufacturer, honeywell aerospace calls it " traffic collision & avoidance system" so apparently there are two names. which
i stated after your 1st bizarre interjection

what i'm not getting is your reasoning for multiple
smarmy interjections. when multiple sources show two names commonly used.
wouldn't T.A.C.A.S. be the correct acronym then?

How cool! I haven't been called smarmy in decades!!

Regardless of what we think that the acronym should be, Bendix (one of the manufacturers you mentioned) calls it Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System.

From the Bendix TCAS I Pilot's Guide:
TCAS (an acronym formed from the phrase Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System) is an airborne system used for detecting and tracking aircraft near your own aircraft.

In any case, I think that this horse is dead; so if you would like the last word, it's yours. I won't be responding further.

and here's a link to website which shows it being called T.C.A.S. " traffic collision and avoidance system" by the manufacturer

aerospace.honeywell.com/

maybe it's implied there are warnings-alerts-audibles in collision avoidance system,and i admitted different names were used . im not
getting why you're so fixated on this

the wiki article on T.C.A.S. spells it out a little clearer on what this thing does, it's various modes
( and, right at top article indicates it's called different names) it's current generation. traffic advisories vs immediate collision avoidance etc
maybe commercial pilots have classes onthis stuff
