Abstract:

The Air Traffic Control Community has appreciated the quality and value of the forum offered by AGARD and continuously supported the related activities......No conferences or organizations, and that includes those in the US, have equalled these AGARD meetings in bringing together the worlds leaders in ATC research and in providing a venue for presenting original research papers of the highest technical quality. Unlike other ATC meetings I could name, here the tradition is technical depth, not superficial round table discussions by managers.... The contributions of AGARD to the Handling of Air Traffic have been essentially generated by the Guidance and Control Panel, which since 1970 has sponsored five symposia Edinburgh, Scotland, 1972 Cambridge, Mass. USA, 1975 Copenhagen, Denmark, 1979 Brussels, Belgium, June 1986 Berlin, Germany, October 1993, one specialists meeting Lisbon, Portugal, 1982, one specialist mission Rome, Italy, 1980, and three AGARDographs 1975, 1990, 1994 totalling twelve volumes, addressing most of the areas of this complex but challenging field. Automatic generation of control advisories remains a key issue and the question The air traffic controller facing automation conflict or co-operation is still - even more than ever - very pertinent. Similar remarks apply to other issues raised 25 years ago, both for major concepts and subsystems options.
