Abstract:

This report documents the results of a study conducted for the purpose of developing a system concept for the control of air traffic in the post 1995 time frame. The concept has been formulated for a system which would be cable of controlling air traffic over a wide geographical area including multiple terminal airbases. The system will be tactical, highly mobile and will incorporate a high degree of survivability. The concept utilizes a data link technique for aircraft position location rather than conventional radar detection and tracking. This report develops the system concept through a preliminary functional design to a level where specific subsystem elements may be identified or defined. As described herein, the Advanced Air Traffic Control System AATCS concept is one approach toward providing the operational capabilities defined for the automated Tactical Launch and Recovery System ATALARS presented in ESD-TR-86-259. The AATCS system is based on ATALARS but with some differences in the operational principles. Keywords Automated tactical aircraft launch and recovery system, ATC, Air traffic control, Concept, Architecture, Airspace management, Battle management.
