Abstract : This report describes the evaluation of the Converging Runway Display Aid (CRDA) which has been used in an operational environment at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport since December 1990. The intent of the evaluation has been to determine the operational benefits of using CRDA at St. Louis and to assess the operational suitability of the aid for national implementation at those airports which have converging or intersecting runway configurations. As a result of the evaluation, it was determined that the CRDA computer/human interface is operationally suitable, use of CRDA can increase airport capacity, with the DCIA procedures provides an acceptable margin of safety. This report supports the decision to proceed with the national implementation of CRDA and provides guidance material for potential users of the aid....
