MONITORING THE MOVEMENT OF WAKE VORTICES AT KENNEDY AND STAPLETON AIRPORTS
During the summer and fall of 1973, the transportation systems center collected an extensive amount of data on the motion of aircraft wake vortices. Two test sites were instrumented the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and the Stapleton International Airport in Denver, Colorado. The vortices from over 10,000 landing aircraft were recorded, and the motion of the vortices was correlated with the ambient meteorological conditions. The results of these measurements coupled with user requirements led to the description of three basic vortex avoidance systems.
