NATIONAL AIRSPACE SYSTEM EXPLORATORY ASSESSMENT FOR YEAR 2005

This report documents the exploratory assessment of the National Airspace System (NAS) for the year 2005. The National Airspace System Performance Analysis Capability (NASCAP) Simulation Modeling System (SMS) was used to simulate the future air traffic control (ATC) system. Airport improvements expected to be completed by the year 2005 were based on the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) and future air traffic demand was based on the 1991 Terminal Area Forecast (TAF). The analysis showed that airfield capacity limitations are the major cause of delay that is projected for the future ATC system. The results suggest that more emphasis should be placed on acquisition investments that alleviate airfield congestion.
