The purpose of the Cockpit Displayed Traffic Information (CDTI) study was to provide the planning base for conducting a flight test evaluation of an Electronic Horizontal Situation Indicator (EHSI) incorporating the position of other air traffic as derived from ground sensors. Study objectives were to: (1) define and scope a system concept for an airborne information display using ground derived ATC and ATC related information (this concept to be based on measurable potential ATC system benefits that are amenable to experimental verification via simulation and flight tests); and (2) prepare an outline of a simulation and flight test program which includes the NASA 515 aircraft, the Langley Research Center traffic simulation and other aircraft and simulations. Testing in a busy terminal area was also to be planned. The general approach was to review the extensive work of other investigators on the CDTI and related concepts, formulate operational concepts for how various roles could be used in the Upgraded Third Generation ATC system (and in realistic terminal area traffic situations), and identify the simulation and testing necessary to evaluate the performance achievable with CDTI.
