The report summarizes the findings of an analysis of ASTC (Airport Surface Traffic Control) system requirements and develops estimates of the deployment potential of proposed system alternatives. The tower control problem areas were investigated by a survey of 19 airports including: visual observations, interviews with tower personnel, collection of data of record and an analysis of tower communication tape recordings at selected airports. Data were also collected from regional FAA authorities and airport authorities on facility expansion and improvement plans aimed at meeting the projected air traffic demand.
