ADVANCED AIR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SYSTEM STUDY. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This report summarizes the U.S. Department of Transportation study and development plans for the air traffic management system of the late 1980's and beyond. The plans are presented in the framework of an evolutionary system concept of traffic management, building upon the Upgraded Third Generation Air Traffic Control System, and defined to meet the projected demands for service, safety, and flexibility in a cost effective manner. In order to provide the information needed for planning future system developments, a program of research and development is described for the system concept presented in the report.
