Abstract:

The long-range objectives of this program is to develop tools and techniques to define, measure, and predict the capacity of an air traffic control system, which can then be used in analytical studies in support of long- range plans, management decisions, and system performance evaluations. The method of approach in this contract provides for testing and refining these tools by using them in typical current problems. This report illustrates the application of these tools to five typical current problems The origins of delays in aviation operations Insensitivity of queue parameters to server statistics Operational measurements in the terminal control area Structuring cost-benefit methodology for ATC capacity improvement measures and Establishing practical safety goals in air traffic control.
