Abstract:

Two Alpha Numeric Generator equipments in the FAA Atlanta and Indianapolis Air Traffic Control Centers passed all acceptance tests and are undergoing operation testing. These Alpha Numeric Generators electronically label aircraft radar blips on air traffic controllers displays with identity, altitude, vector, speed, and other data. The use of the Alpha Numeric Generators in the ARTS and SPAN air traffic control systems automates former manual functions of the controllers, reduces the necessary communications with aircraft pilots, and minimizes the possibilities of errors in air traffic control. A summary of development problems and test results on the Alpha Numeric Generators is given.
