NATIONAL AIRSPACE SYSTEM. MEASURING AIR ROUTE TRAFFIC CONTROL CENTER COMPUTER UTILIZATION
Many of the proposals for improvement in National Airspace System (NAS) automation programs are dependent upon available computer processing time in the Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) computer systems. Systems Research and Development Service was tasked to determine the details of ARTCC Computer Utilization. After a discussion of available alternatives, it was decided to collect approximately six months of data from each of the twenty Air Route Traffic Control Centers within the conterminous United States. A computer program, designed and produced at NAFEC, reduces the collected data to meaningful statistics. This report presents the methods used as well as the conclusions derived from the survey.
