Abstract:

This document has been prepared to assist the Airspace Control Planning Panel by describing the broad outline and general features of the environment for air traffic control functions anticipated in the 2010 timeframe. The description is based on estimates of the volume and nature of air transportation in the early 21st century and the assumption of orderly evolution of technology and concepts now being explored. No specific restrictions were placed on the breadth of the effort, other than the direction to address both military and civil concerns in terms of the respective roles, functions and missions in each sphere of activity. It is hoped that this initial effort at an integrated civil-military overview will be useful in providing part of the foundation for jointly considering future operational concepts, architectures, and initiatives. It is to be seen as an impetus for effective and coordinated planning, rather than as an end in itself. MM
