The Advanced Air Traffic Management System (AATMS) program is a long-range investigation of new concepts and techniques for controlling air traffic and providing services to the growing number of commercial, military, and general aviation users of the national airspace. This study of the applications of automation was undertaken as part of the AATMS program. The purposes were to specify and describe the desirable extent of automation of AATMS, to estimate the requirements for man and machine resources associated with such a degree of automation, and to examine the prospective employment of humans and automata as air traffic management is converted from a labor-intensive to a machine-intensive activity. Volume I is a summary document, stating the background and objectives of the study and describing the major study results. It also contains a discussion of the implications of the results for an advanced air traffic management system and a suggested strategy for implementation of automation.
