Abstract:

A programmable ARTS Automated Radar Terminal System II B, non-tracking, beacon alphanumeric system was installed in a TRACAB Terminal Radar Approach Control Cab configuration in a live air traffic control tower environment. Operational suitability and techniques to be used in the automation program for low-density terminaltowers were evaluated. The system was evaluated over a six-week period through collection of subjective data obtained from controller questionnaires. It was concluded that while suitable for application in a TRACAB Terminal Radar Approach Control Cab environment and compatible with the controller, extensive modification to both display subsystem and software were required to improve its usefulness.
