SIMULATION MODEL FOR NEW YORK AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL COMMUNICATIONS
This volume describes the construction, validation, and application of a simulation model for air traffic control (ATC) communications. The model is based upon an extensive statistical analysis of voice communications data gathered over the New York area during a busy 2-hour period. The structure of the simulation model is discussed along with the associated GPSS V program. The input parameters are outlined, and various master tables and equations are employed to capsulate the information provided by the earlier statistical analyses. Methods for validating the simulation model are described for particular sectors and sector functions. A new statistical testing procedure for comparing both simulated and historical time series traces is evoked. The responses of major interest are the aircraft loading, channel utilization, and communications queueing, the last of which can only be secured through simulation.
