TAXIWAY : A defined path on a land aerodrome established for the taxiing of aircraft and intended to provide a link between one part of the aerodrome and another, including:

Aircraft Stand Taxilane: A portion of an apron designated as a taxiway and intended to provide access to aircraft stands only.

Apron Taxiway: A portion of a taxiway system located on an apron and intended to provide a through taxi route across the apron.

Rapid Exit Taxiway: A taxiway connected to a runway at an acute angle and designed to allow landing aeroplanes to turn off at higher speeds than are achieved on other exit taxi-ways and thereby minimising runway occupancy times

Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS): An airborne collision avoidance system based on radar beacon signals which operates independent of ground-based equipment.

TCAS-I generates traffic advisory only; TCAS-II generates traffic advisories, and resolution (collision avoidance) advisories in the vertical plane.
