CONSOLIDATED CAR DISPLAY: A SUMMARY REPORT OF THE PROCESS AND THE RESULTS OF THE CONSOLIDATION OF CRITICAL AND SUPPLEMENTARY TERMINAL AREA AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL INFORMATION FOR DISPLAY PRESENTATION

This report describes the work performed within the Systems Simulation and Analysis Division, ACT-200, to produce an engineering requirement for a terminal area display system for field implementation by the Airway Facilities Service. The report details the basic project efforts to define a data display system to consolidate many of the Terminal Radar Approach Control Facility (TRACON) and tower cab controller's indicators, displays, alarms, controls, status lights, weather data presentations, etc., to reduce physical size, improve work station efficiency, and enhance the management and use of Air Traffic Control (ATC) oriented data. The report covers the data collection process; the requirements determination process; the technology assessment performed; the design development, and validation of certain hardware/software components; a risk assessment of the unique aspects of the system design; and the engineering requirement form.
