ENGINEERING AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM PLAN - TERMINAL/TOWER CONTROL
The purpose of the TERMINAL/TOWER CONTROL Program is to develop the capabilities applicable to terminal radar control facilities and airport traffic control towers in consonance with the overall Phase I and Phase II upgrading efforts for the Upgraded Third Generation ATC System. A corollary purpose is to continually assess the adequacy of implemented improvements in terms of utility, capacity and performance and devise fixes to rectify deficiencies encountered in day-to-day operations of terminal/tower facilities. The program encompasses developments affecting the acceptance, processing, distribution, and display of flight plan, control, surveillance and environmental data, and the airspace utilization and control procedures applicable to terminal/tower operations.
