ENGINEERING AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM PLAN - WAKE VORTEX
This Engineering and Development Program Plan defines the current research efforts investigating the wake vortex phenomenon. The overall objectives of the program are the design, development, testing, and prototyping of a system(s) to increase runway capacity by minimizing wake vortex effects as an impediment to efficient and effective traffic management in the terminal environment. The plan identifies and discusses the three major work areas: Vortex Advisory System, Wake Vortex Avoidance System, and Vortex Alleviation Research. Prior developments and related research are reviewed and future research requirements identified. (Author)
