Considerable study is currently being devoted to satellite applications for aeronautical services in oceanic areas. A principal influence on satellite sizing and related system design is the nature of air traffic to be served during busy operating periods throughout the area of satellite coverage. A particular need exists for estimates of the maximum or near peak number of aircraft likely to be airborne simultaneously within the total geographical area planned for satellite services. The purpose of the reports is to develop estimates of instantaneous airborne count LAC in the Pacific for each year through 1979 and to provide a brief comparison of Pacific PAC versus North Atlantic NAT operations in oceanic airspace considered most practical for first generation operational satellite systems.
