AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL/COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM INTERFACE SIMULATION: PHASE II

A second phase of dynamic simulation is reported to further investigate the nature and extent of interaction between the air traffic control (ATC) system and an airborne collision avoidance system (CAS). Objectives were to investigate the impact on ATC when the preemptive CAS diverted an equipped aircraft into an encounter with an unequipped aircraft, to investigate the effectiveness of a strategy for switching the CAS threat detection from full system mode to landing mode, and to explore the three-way interface between a proposed general aviation version of the CAS, the commercial CAS and ATC system. The environment was a high-density terminal area which provided for simultaneous approaches to parallel runways.
