Abstract:

The FAA Quiet Short-Haul Air Transportation System QSATS Office has asked The MITRE Corporation to prepare a QSATS Air Traffic Control ATC Program Plan, for consideration as part of a national short-haul air transportation system improvement plan. At the inception of the task, concepts of how future short-haul system improvement should evolve and estimates of the demand such improvement would foster, were still in the formative stage. However, it was agreed that the ATC implications of the QSATS program could be determined via a wide but realistic range of airport, terminal area and en route scenarios. Volume I of this report contains the QSATS ATC Program Plan which resulted. This volume, 2, presents the QSATS Airport ATC scenarios, and supports the airport aspects of the proposed ATC program plan. By definition, the Airport ATC scenarios are concerned with ATC facilities, rules and procedures necessary to move air traffic from the ILS gate to the terminal building passenger gate and vice versa.
