A previous MITRE Technical Report, Airport Surface Traffic Control Systems Deployment Analysis, FAA-RD-74-6, presented an analysis of ASTC (Airport Surface Traffic Control) system requirements and developed estimates of the deployment potential of proposed ASTC system alternatives for 19 air carrier airports. The primary requirement was determined to be improved surveillance which resulted in an estimated deployment of one of two surveillance systems at 16 airports by 1980. This report presents an expansion of that deployment analysis to include a total of 39 air carrier airports. The methods and assumptions for the deployment analysis of the 20 airports presented in this report are essentially the same as in the initial report. The overall result of the analysis is that by the initial deployment date (1976-1980) of the two alternative surveillance systems, the total potential market will be for 20-25 systems. By the end of the century, the total potential market for ASTC surveillance systems will exceed 30.
