A developmental television mosaic display generator for the National Airspace System is described. The optimum coverage portions of eight air traffic control radars are combined into a composite picture covering a large surveillance area. Ten air traffic controllers may view any portion of the mosaic area with a movable display window. Input data to the system is radar video which has been scan-converted from PPI to 945-line television. Gray level photographic slides are used with television cameras in a video blanking generator to select scan-converted radar video for inclusion in the mosaic. Timing for the system is generated by a digital master synchronizer which is fully compatible with existing RBDE-5 equipment. Improved air traffic control methods are developed using the TV mosaic to advance the safe and efficient movement of air vehicles in the Nations airspace. Author
