This report documents the results of analyses performed to extend and expand the definition of the Automated Tactical Launch and Recovery System ATALARS presented in ESD-TR-86-259, Advanced Air Traffic Control Concept, 19 June 1986. The Electronic Systems Division ESD Technical Report TR concluded that tactical air traffic control ATC has long been deficient in survivability with no firm planning to resolve future needs. It formulated a concept that eliminates the need for complex ATC systems at every airbase, suggesting, instead, and aircraft based system with a single ground control unit, integrated to provide ATC for a large geographical area including multiple launch and recovery areas. This report further develops the concept by presenting the results of a detailed functional analysis and a preliminary functional design effort. It also provides recommendations for further development of the ATALARS concept.
