SYSTEMS INTEGRATION ANALYSIS FOR FUTURE TOWER CAB CONFIGURATIONS/SYSTEMS
This report presents the results of the analysis of various aspects of the integration of future ATC systems into the tower cab. The impact on the tower cab environment is analyzed from several points of view: how the systems information and displays might be used to approach idealized controller station configurations; how the cab equipment and displays resulting from these systems might be fitted into existing controller station configurations; how those systems--some not yet fully defined--might evolve and interact with the present and future systems; how the data-processing functions and equipment might be integrated; and how, or if, economies might be achieved through common siting of certain system sensors.
