Abstract:

This report contains an analysis of a study and evaluation conducted for the purpose of developing an improved data presentation to be used with raster-type pictorial air traffic control displays. A satisfactory data presentation is a highly desirable function of radar target-tracking markers. It was necessary to design a new style of alpha-numeric characters to satisfy the present requirements for a SPANRAD data display thus, the development of alpha-numeric symbols suitable for use with SPANRAD is described in considerable detail.
