This report discusses the operational evaluation of the Tower Cab Digital Display (TCDD). The TCDD is used for air traffic control operations in the St. Petersburg control tower and the MacDill Air Force Base ground control approach (GCA) and control tower facilities as part of the Automated Radar Terminal System (ARTS) IIIA Remote Tower Display System. Evaluation objectives were to determine the usefulness and suitability of TCDD operational features. Resultant findings will be input to the Systems Research and Development Service (SRDS) technical data package for future production TCDD's. For the most part, resultant findings are favorable to existing TCDD capabilities. Some modifications are recommended for future production models. (Author)
