OAKLAND BAY TRACON AND LOS ANGELES TRACON: CASE STUDIES OF UPGRADED THIRD GENERATION TERMINAL ATC OPERATIONAL IMPACT

This report documents the work performed by Stanford Research Institute (SRI) to assess the impact of Upgraded Third Generation (UG3RD) Terminal Air Traffic Control (ATC) System alternatives on control facility operations. The various UG3RD features would be added incrementally to the current Automated Radar Terminal (ARTS) III terminal ATC operation; the alternatives under evaluation are automatic data handling, basic metering and spacing (M and S), conflict probe, area navigation, Discrete Address Beacon System (DABS) data link (incorporating advanced M and S), and DABS-based intermittent positive control.
