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
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
