FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION OF THE TRAFFIC ANALYSIS AND DISPLAY SYSTEM OF THE SAN FRANCISCO VTS

The traffic and display system for the San Francisco experimental vessel traffic system was designed to enable operators to obtain position, speed, and identification information on vessels of interest more quickly and accurately than previously possible from manual systems. The system is described in terms of design process: the basic requirements, the equipment layout, the categorization of information, the file structure, the allocation of functions to various portions of the system, the flow of data in the system, the software structure, and the hardware organization.
