A task force comprised of representatives from the FAA, airlines and the City of Chicago was formed in December of 1974 to study the present and future capacity and delay of the Chicago O'Hare International Airport. The task force effort concentrated on two future air traffic control environments. One consisting of (a) Basic Metering and Spacing, (b) Wake Vortex Predictive System; the other consisting of (a) Advanced Metering and Spacing, (b) Discrete Address Beacon System, and (c) Wake Vortex Predictive System. In support of the task force effort, the Airport Design Branch of SRDS has conducted a capacity analysis using January 1975 schedule information to determine the present and future capacities of the airport.
