Abstract:

This document presents a study of the technical feasibility and cost benefits of consolidating and automating the three Atlantic Oceanic Air Traffic Control ATC centers San Juan, Miami, and New York into one center and the three Pacific oceanic ATC centers Anchorage, Oakland, and Honolulu into another center. The study focused on the era prior to the introduction of oceanic satellite systems for communications and surveillance. The scope of the study involved deriving traffic estimates, sizing the automation system for the estimated traffic, estimating controller staffing requirements, estimating requirements and availability of floor space for the operations room and computer equipment, and sizing the added communications requirements of the consolidated centers.
