Abstract:

This volume of the study to define the economic implications of a United States supersonic transport aircraft SST describes the major costs associated with necessary modifications to enroute support services. The degree of responsiveness of existing capabilities to the needs of the larger, faster, higher-flying aircraft which will join free world airfleets by 1975 is examined in relation to airways, navigation and communications, meteorology, and radiation. Proposed and evolutionary successor systems are identified. The nature and extent of improvements planned and the costs of their development, fabrication and installation are presented and discussed as related to the needs of the four advanced high-capacity aircraft types stretched subsonics DC-8- 63, high-capacity subsonics B-747, Concorde, United States SST.
