CONCEPT FOR A SATELLITE-BASED ADVANCED AIR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. VOLUME VI. DEVELOPMENT AND TRANSITION PLANS

The volume presents the plans for implementing the Satellite-Based Advanced Air Traffic Management System (SAATMS) described in Volumes II, III, and IV. Two plans are presented: an RDT&E plan and a transition plan. The RDT&E plan is presented as a series of task descriptions which delineate the activities that must be performed to generate requirements and to develop the hardware and software that comprise the various components of the system. The plan also describes those management tasks necessary to document and control the orderly development of the system. Development schedules and associated costs are also presented. The transition plan presents a two-phase, 13-year program for transition from the in-being system to the SAATMS. The plan describes how the facilities, services, equipment, and rules governing operation in the SAATMS are phased in and the in-being system is phased out. The plan is designed to minimize user costs and avoid federal government budget peaks. A schedule of various regulations governing the installation of SAATMS avionics equipment in user aircraft is also presented.
