Abstract:

There are many emergency situations which require National Airspace System NAS assistance. They include aircraft becoming lost, overdue, or making a forced landing. Many federal, state, and local agencies supply resources for providing Search and Rescue SAR assistance. The NAS is required to detect the need, and to initiate and assist in SAR operations. The National Airspace System Requirements Specification NASSRS, NAS-SR-1000, describes the requirements for providing this assistance to the users. This operational concept document has been developed using an established standard format and is consistent in structure with a series of operational concepts written about various sections of the NASSRS. It describes search and rescue assistance capabilities and shows the relationships between subsystems, facilities, information, and operatorsusers. It is intended to provide a common perspective for personnel involved in search rescue activities, assist in determining whether the search and rescue procedures meet formal requirements, and support coordination among the organizations involved with search and rescue assistance.
