TERMINAL INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEM CONCEPT TESTING (CONTROL TOWER)

Simulations were conducted at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center using the Flight Data Distribution System to evaluate two concepts of a Terminal Information Processing System (TIPS) using electronic display of flight information as a replacement for printed paper flight strips in airport traffic control towers associated with high-density Automated Radar Terminal System (ARTS III) facilities. It was concluded that paper flight strips can be replaced successfully by an electronic system. Recommendations were made to remedy those deficiencies that were discovered during the concept testing.
