Abstract : The purpose of this plan is to detail the procedural approach and methods to be employed in evaluating the air traffic control (ATC) interface of the prototype Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR) system. The plan describes the evaluation that will be performed at the Orlando International Airport (MCO) during the summer of 1992. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Technical Center will be interested in the controller's and supervisor's evaluation of the Geographical Situation Display (GSD) and the Ribbon Display Terminal (RDT), installed at the ATC tower. The evaluation of these displays may determine the operational suitability of the TDWR in the National Airspace System (NAS).
