Abstract:

The ANTSQ-47 specifically and the Emergency Mission Support program in general are establishing the requirements for ATC systems which will handle increasing traffic rates. The nature of mobile operations is such that there are vast separations in time and geographical locations for the use of this equipment. With these increasing demands on personnel and equipment new concepts in training are needed. The report presents the need for the functional description of, and the operational use of a sophisticated proficiency facility. This proficiency facility is essentially comprised of aircraft target generators, a flight path projection computer, simulated communications equipment, simulated tower position, and other auxiliary equipments. This facility in conjunction with an ANTSW-5 Rapcon shelter is capable of simulating and quantitatively measuring a broad category of terminal ATC operations.
