Abstract:

This report presents the methodology and the results of a comparison of the gross costs of the present day communications system projected and the Integrated National Airspace Communications System INACS for the period 1982 through 1996. The INACS cost inputs to have been derived for a system INACS which is only in a concept stage. System specifications have not yet been prepared. The projected INACS costs have been structured to permit a near direct cost comparison with like subsystem elements in the present system. The summary of present day system communication costs projected from 1974 through the year 2001 was provided by the Policy Analysis Division, AVP-200, Office of Aviation Policy. The cost estimates presented are subject to change, refinement, and validation by cost benefit analyses work to be conducted under Phase I of the INACS program as set forth in the document FAA-INACS-061-221-P1, dated October 1, 1975, titled, INACS Phase 1 Program Plan. The primary objective of this report is to present data to permit an Agency decision as to the feasibility of implementing the Phase 1 activities proposed under the INACS program. Author
