AIRPORT SURFACE TRAFFIC CONTROL CONCEPT FORMULATION STUDY. VOLUME IV. ESTIMATION OF REQUIREMENTS

A detailed study of requirements was performed and is presented. This requirements effort provided an estimate of the performance requirements of a surveillance sensor that would be required in a TAGS (Tower Automated Ground Surveillance) system for use in both good and poor visibility conditions. Detailed studies were made of the complex type of conflicts to be solved by both the Ground and Local Controllers and operational levels and densities were developed.
