Simulation studies of a plan for an interim common terminal radar control facility to serve the New York metropolitan area were conducted at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center, Atlantic City, New Jersey. The studies were divided into two phases. In the first phase, equipment and controller arrangement configurations were explored and a single configuration was ultimately developed. In the second phase, the plan was evaluated using the configuration developed. It was concluded that the basic console design provided adequate space for all anticipated required equipments and allowed for optimum controller placement for large screen display viewing. The console design was not considered optimum for the positions located at a second row of consoles since these positions did not use the large screen displays. The equipment configuration provided an environment in which intrafacility coordination was facilitated. It was recommended that further study and evaluation of the Eidophor projection system and large screen display presentations be conducted prior to the introduction of this type of display into an operational facility.
