An automated frequency assignment system is developed as a means of providing frequency assignment plans for FAA Air Traffic Control (ATC) VHF communications facilities in the continental United States. The system is implemented by means of a series of computer programs (described herein) designated collectively as the Frequency Assignment System (FAS). FAA-supplied ATC data is used to build an intersite channel-separation matrix which serves as input to the assignment process. Assignment techniques are developed that make maximum use of the available spectrum. Descriptions are included on how the frequency manager can vary the program inputs to investigate the advantages of different assignment procedures. (Author)
