ENROUTE SECTOR REDESIGN (FIELD SURVEY OF FLIGHT STRIP DATA)
A flight data survey has been conducted at eight air route traffic control centers to identify sector flight data requirements when operating with National Airspace System Stage A radar data processing (RDP). Controllers stated which flight data elements, presently shown on paper flight strips, are required for continuous display when using RDP, and which elements can be deleted from display or placed on a callup status in a redesigned enroute sector. The results of this survey and a concomitant analysis of hand annotation of control information on the strips are intended to guide design of a testable and improved display that can replace the paper strips. Procedures to be followed in demonstrating the potential utility of such a reformatted and automated display of flight data are summarized. Also, tests to be conducted with improved data input facilities are described.
