Abstract:

The purpose of this plan is to detail the procedural approach and methods to be employed in evaluating the air traffic control ATC interface of the prototype Terminal Doppler Weather Radar TDWR system. The plan describes the evaluation that will be performed at the Orlando International Airport MCO during the summer of 1992. The Federal Aviation Administration FAA Technical Center will be interested in the controllers and supervisors evaluation of the Geographical Situation Display GSD and the Ribbon Display Terminal RDT, installed at the ATC tower. The evaluation of these displays may determine the operational suitability of the TDWR in the National Airspace System NAS.
