An overview of FAA involvement in civil aviation metrication activities is presented. The problems associated with conversion of the National Airspace System are summarized. A system analysis effort is proposed to obtain a better understanding of metric conversion impact and to forecast risk factors in order not to compromise safety. An engineering and development program is outlined to serve as a stimulant to initiate or provoke further thinking in describing what needs to be done. Author
