Abstract:

This study estimates the value of aviation safety improvements that could be obtained by implementing various alternative configurations of the Upgraded Third Generation ATC System. Estimates are based on the central assumption that the frequency of aviation accidents per operation observed in the past will be repeated unless identifiable steps are undertaken to eliminate specific classes of accidents. Recent accident data on midair collisions and controlled collisions with the terrain were examined to identify types of accidents that could be prevented by the UG3RD. Preventable accident rates were calculated and used to forecast future accidents under an extension of todays system and accidents that could be prevented by the UG3RD. Author
