This report is concerned with the possible consolidated of operational information, equipment status information and system control panels within each control position in the control Tower Cab and TRACON at Logan International Airport, Boston, MA. In particular, the report is concerned with the controller interface with such a consolidation system. The consolidated display concept considered in this study is based on a flexible format, face-sensitive, touch-entry display. This type of display is based on advanced, as opposed to proven technology. However, this advanced technology is particularly well suited for consolidation display design; particularly when control panels are to be included. The report presents the operational requirements on such a consolidated display from the viewpoint of Boston Logan controllers, a set of preliminary display format designs based on these requirements, and the reaction of Boston Logan controllers to both the format designs and the concept in general.
