USE OF COMPUTER GRAPHICS TO ANALYZE NAVIGATIONAL PERFORMANCE AND JET-ROUTE SEPARATION

Formulation of jet-route separation standards to achieve adequate levels of safety requires careful analysis of aircraft navigational performance. In the processing and analysis of extensive data obtained from the continental U.S. air traffic control (ATC) system, computer graphics techniques were used to develop a clean data base, to provide descriptive summaries of achieved navigational performance, and to portray the relationship between collision risk and track-system geometry. This paper describes these applications and their importance in ATC systems analysis. (Author)
