Abstract:

This report assesses the intra-agency interoperability of a broad spectrum of ATC and airspace management systems. The FAA NAS plan is summarized to describe the national system that will exit in 1999. Military ATC systems are projected to the same period and evaluated by type of system i.e., fixed or tactical, application i.e., radar, positionnavigation, communications, etc., and branch of military service. The evaluation includes a discussion of the expected interfaces between military and civil system components. The assessment describes potential impacts of incompatible and non-interoperable systems on the DoD in terms of safety and operational effectiveness and probable impacts on specific Air Force mission requirements. The report does not assess in depth the DoDs tactical ATC components or the tactical command and control systems that are not directly related to ATC.
