Abstract:

The purpose of the project was to design an improved airport lighting control panel for use in airport traffic control towers. Data on the physical characteristics of in-use panels and operational experience of users were collected at nine control towers in the Eastern Region. The need for a cleanly designed, compact, and easily read and activated lighting system displaycontrol panel was documented. An important feature of this design is that the operation of the auxiliary systems is contingent upon the activation of the main runway lights in such a manner as to minimize the number of control units.
