Abstract:

A survey has been conducted of the need for computer-based data communications andor processing facilities at a major civil airport. This survey has revealed an imbalance in the current development of such facilities within civil aviation which is to the detriment of the airport and which, if not redressed, will limit the advantage to be derived from those facilities already in operation or under development. A proposal is made for a system comprising data communication and processing facilities that is intended to enable the airport to participate fully in future developments of civil aviation automation. The proposal is made in varying depth for the various aspects of the overall system greatest consideration having been given to the requirements of the airport ATC where the need for improved communications is thought to be the most pressing.
