Abstract:

This bibliographic compilation lists reading materials concerned with separation standards for the air traffic control system. Related subjects, such as collision risk analysis, navigational track-keeping error, descriptions of proposed navigational systems or aids, and costbenefits trade-off studies of ATC system design, are included to some extent, but selectively rather than extensively or in depth. Orientation of the materials selected for listing is largely, but not exclusively, toward oceanic enroute aspects of the international air traffic control systems. The North Atlantic system NAT is particularly evident this follows naturally from the extensive study efforts organized under ICAO as the NAT Systems Planning Group and the special panel for Review of the General Concept of Separation RGSCP. The style of presentation is tailored to facilitate rapid scan. Annotations are largely derivative from other sources, and the comments are descriptive rather than evaluatory. Comprehensiveness was sacrificed to selectivity to avoid unwieldness. Author
