In recognition of the major impact which microcomputers may have on society in general, and aviation in particular, the Federal Aviation Administration, Office of Aviation Policy, Policy Development Division, System Concepts Branch, has funded this study consistent with the goals of its Technology Assessment and Forecasting Program. The study has as its main objective the assessment of the impact of microcomputers on the National Aviation System (NAS). The time horizon of the impact assessment is 1976 to 2000 A.D. The impact will be assessed with respect to the important goals of the NAS, specifically, those referred to as the 'S3E' goals (Safety, Energy, Environment, Economics). Another objective of the study is to identify the policy implications accompanying the impacts. (Author)
