This report documents the results of a study conducted for the purpose of developing a preliminary implementation approach, utilizing planned or existing systems, for a proof of concept demonstration of the Automated Tactical Aircraft Launch and Recovery System ATALARS. The basis for the ATALARS concept was derived from the system presented in ESD-TR-86-259, and from the system configuration described in the Final Report by Airspace Technology Corp. under SBIR Contract F19628-87-C-0195. This report reviews the basic ATALARS system concept and the technologies applicable to a full capability system configuration. The full up system configuration was evaluated to determine which elements, considered critical to the basic ATALARS system concept, could be implemented in a proof of concept POC model. Based on the study, it was determined that the POC model should address 1 the Processing and Display PD and 2 Network Control Functions NCF. The study describes the basic features of the PD and NCF to be incorporated into the POC model and preliminary definition of the system configuration. rwj
