Automated En Route Air Traffic Control Algorithmic Specifications. Volume 4. Sector Workload Probe( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This specification establishes design criteria for a Sector Workload Probe algorithm, which is part of the initial automation for the Advanced Automation System of the Federal Aviation Administration's Air Traffic Control System. This algorithm calculates measures related to workload. The algorithm takes into account a variety of measures. These measures include the following: average aircraft count; number of expected aircraft or airspace conflicts (as generated by two other advanced automation algorithms, Flight Plan Conflict Probe and Airspace Probe); a measure of actions which must be carried out by controllers; a density measure; and an overall measure. For every sector, each measure is projected for various time intervals of approximately 15 minutes up to about two hours in the future. An Area Supervisor or Area Manager may, at any time, request a display of the current and projected workload measures for a specified sector or set of sectors. Also, the Area Supervisor may monitor selected sector(s) to determine if certain measures exceed or fall below thresholds that he or she specifies
Operational and Functional Description of the AERA Packages by A W Lipps( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AERA consists of a series of new or enhanced software functions which help the performance of en route air traffic control. Current planning calls for the AERA functions to be developed incrementally in a series of six separate packages. This document presents an overview of the AERA packages, with particular emphasis on the way the AERA functions interact with other ATC functions and with the controller. Functional descriptions of each package present the logical organization of the AERA functions, including the role of each function and the interfaces between functions. The operational descriptions discuss how the AERA functions will be used by the controller: when the function is invoked, what information is exchanged between the function and the controller, and how the controller is expected to respond
Automated En Route Air Traffic Control Algorithmic Specifications. Volume 5. Data Specification( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Algorithmic Specification establishes the design criteria for four advanced automation software functions to be included in the initial software package of the Advanced Automation System (AAS). The need for each function is discussed within the context of the existing National Airspace System (NAS). A top-down definition of each function is provided with descriptions on increasingly more detailed levels. The final, most detailed description of each function identifies the data flows and transformations taking place within each function. This document consists of five volumes. Volume 5, Data Specification, contains the definitions of important data constructs used across all the algorithmic specifications. The data are accumulated in a modified relational data base

The final, most detailed description of each function identifies the data flows and transformations taking place within each function. This document consists of five volumes. Volume 2, Airspace Probe, contains a functional design for the use of trajectory data to predict penetrations of airspace, volumes from which the general flying public is normally restricted
Automated En Route Air Traffic Control Algorithmic Specifications. Volume 1. Trajectory Estimation( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Algorithmic Specification establishes the design criteria for four advanced automation software functions to be included in the initial software package of the Advanced Automation System (AAS). The need for each function is discussed within the context of the existing National Airspace System (NAS). A top-down definition of each function is provided with descriptions on increasingly more detailed levels. The final, most detailed description of each function identifies the data flows and transformations taking place within each function. This document consists of five volumes. Volume 1, Trajectory Estimation, contains a functional design for deriving a predicted four-dimensional (space and time) path, or trajectory, for each participating aircraft
Operational and Functional Description of AERA 1.01( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The AERA 1.01 functions, to be implemented as part of the Advanced Automation System for en route air traffic control, consist of: Trajectory Estimation; Flight Plan Conflict Probe; Airspace Probe; and Sector Workload Probe. This document presents a high-level operational and functional description of these four advanced automation functions. The operational description discusses the effects of the advanced automation functions on the controller: what information must be provided to the functions, what information is received from the function, which controller receives that information, and what the controller's response should be. The effect of these functions on the structure of the controller's job, such as training and staffing requirements, is also discussed. The functional description presents the logical organization of the advanced automation functions, including the role of each function and the interfaces between functions. (Author)
Automated En Route Air Traffic Control Algorithmic Specifications. Volume 3. Flight Plan Conflict Probe( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This specification establishes design criteria for the Flight Plan Conflict Probe (FPCP), a part of the initial automation for the Advanced Automation System of the FAA's next generation air traffic control system. The algorithm provides data for a display to air traffic controllers whenever any two aircraft are predicted to approach each other within certain separation criteria in the horizontal and vertical dimensions. Such a pair of aircraft is called a conflict. Trajectory Estimation, another function of the Advanced Automation System, models the predicted position of each aircraft as a trajectory, consisting of points in (x, y, z, t) space and the line segments connecting them. Trajectories reflect both pilot intent (his approved flight plan) and current position (radar reports). FPCP automatically tests all trajectory pairs for conflicts. FPCP is designed to be compatible with current air traffic control procedures. It displays information early enough for controllers to resolve conflicts in a deliberate fashion. It alerts the the controller when prompt action is deemed necessary to resolve a conflict
Philosophy of Applying Automation to Air Traffic Control( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper summarizes the objectives of the U.S. program for applying automation to air traffic control systems, progress thus far, and plans for the future
Response to NAS (National Airspace System) Plan Audit Report Recommendations( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents FAA's position and response on each of the System Engineering and Integration (SEI) contractor's recommendations as contained in Section 6 of the NAS Plan Audit Report, ATC-84-0026, dated August 1984. It also serves to punctuate the SEI contractor's responsibilities in implementing the NAS Plan. Keywords: National Airspace System (NAS) Plan, NAS Implementation
A description of the Mode Select beacon system (Mode S) and its associated benefits to the National Airspace System (NAS) by P. Douglas Hodgkins( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a historical perspective and technical description to clarify the background and benefits of the mode select beacon system (Mode S). First, a brief synopsis of the development of the Mode S surveillance function is given in Section 2.0. Section 3.0 provides an overview of the operation of both ATCRBS and Mode S systems to highlight their operational differences. Section 4.0 discusses benefits which will be realized solely as a consequence of Mode S ground sensor installation. Section 5.0 describes how Mode S ground sensor installations provide immunity to synchronous garble and other ATCRBS deficiencies, and describes the advantages realized as a result of near-universal Mode S transponder equipage. The Mode S data link function is described in Section 6.0. This report describes the operation of the Mode S subsystem and identifies benefits that the Mode S system provides to the National Airspace System (NAS) for surveillance and data link operations. These benefits include a reduction in asynchronous interference, reduced sensitivity to synchronous garble, and more accurate and reliable surveillance, and support of air-ground data link operations. This report addresses the benefits of using the mode select (Mode S) beacon system as an alternative for replacement of existing air traffic control beacon interrogators
