Abstract:

A method of presenting flight data on the automated radar terminal system ARTS III plan view display PVD, for use in high-density terminal facilities, was evaluated. Consideration was given to the alphanumeric writing demands, the controllers ability to read alphanumerics from various positions around the PVD, and the operational air traffic control ATC aspects of the concept. The method tested did not excessively burden the alphanumeric writing capability of the ARTS III. The controllers were able to read the alphanumerics satisfactorily. While the overall method of presenting data was found to be unsatisfactory, due to excessive keyboard workload and the limited number of flights on which data could be displayed simultaneously, some of the techniques employed should be retained for use in the program that succeeds Concept I.
