Abstract:

The results of analytical study and real time cockpit simulation of three and four dimensional airborne area navigation concepts for increasing aviation system capacity in the terminal area are presented in this report. Varying degrees of ATC capability, approach and landing aids, and airborne system capability are addressed. Analytical results present the airborneATC equipment accuracies necessary to support varying degrees of control precision. Results from the real time cockpit simulation indicate the degree of ATCpilot and pilotairborne equipment interaction necessary to obtain the time delivery precision predicted by the analytical results. All the airborne concepts rely on a high level ATC metering and spacing system. As a result airborne system complexity for each user type is held to a minimum and simultaneous ATC control of aircraft with mixed equipment capabilities can be accomplished.
