Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to demonstrate a concept of air traffic control ATC that employs automatic position reporting via data link and associated video displays in the oceanic control sectors of an air route traffic control center ARTCC. Specific objectives were 1 to determine the feasibility of automatic position reporting via data link 2 to determine the conceptual suitability of the test sector for oceanic control 3 to provide environmental and interfacing information 4 to provide operational information that would be helpful in the preparation of specifications for further development and 5 to determine relative controller workloads, flight safety, and system capacities.
