Abstract:

Although the air traffic control beacon system is rapidly growing in usage, and a vigorous development program to resolve performance limitations is in progress, the need for a primary radar surveillance system to be fully operational over the next decade clearly exists. This document discusses the role of the primary radar system, its performance deficiencies, and technical development programs to be undertaken during this time period, to assure that the total air traffic control surveillance requirements will be met.
