This volume is one of a series of operations concepts for the FAAs Advanced Automation System AAS. It describes how en route controllers in Air Route Traffic Control Center facilities may perform their operational jobs in the Initial Sector Suite System ISSS environment. ISSS functionality is assumed to be as described in the AAS System Level Specification,28 August 1987. Included here are Composition Graphs, showing the logical flow of operational tasks performed in response to or anticipation of external Air Traffic Events a series of analyses of these tasks, including Task Information Requirements, CognitiveSensory Attributes, and Performance Criteria a User Interface Language aggregation system input and output messages in a hierarchical organization decomposition of tasks to their constituent procedural elements traceability between tasks and supporting ISSS functionality and sample operational scenarios for each position. Data presented here are generated and maintained using the Computer-Human Operational Requirements Analysis System CHORAS. CHORAS includes an automated task data base, specialized graphing capabilities, and display and hard copy output features tailored to the needs of operations concept analysis. Keywords Federal Aviation Administration FAA Task analysis Operational scenarios, Composition graphs, Man machine interface.
