AUTOMATED VHF FREQUENCY ASSIGNMENT SYSTEM (FAS) FOR FAA AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL COMMUNICATIONS

An automated frequency assignment system (FAS) was developed as a means of providing frequency assignment plans for FAA Air Traffic Control (ATC) VHF communications facilities. The FAS consists of a series of computer models (described herein). Examples are included of how the model inputs can be varied to investigate the advantages of different assignment procedures. The system can be used for assignment gaming, including partial and complete assignments, detecting violators, statistical analyses, and plots of service volume.
