Near-term improvements in the air traffic control system are examined, and concerns over whether these changes will be comprehensive and made quickly enough to keep up with traffic growth are addressed. The abilities of the new host computers installed in the 20 US en route centers are discussed.

New digital radar equipment and its capabilities are described. The need to increase human controller productivity is explored.<>
