The Air Terminal Command and Control System for a military application requires, above all, one important asset. That asset is unquestionably, visibility. This does not imply the commercial aspect of visibility, where the most important concern is with the specific locations of the aircraft. Aircraft locations include both aircraft on the ground and in the air. Commercial visibility, as a whole, deals with personal safety. Military visibility is a far broader concern. Not only is the location of a specific aircraft important, but the cargo on-board that aircraft is vital to any successful military operation. Cargo may be categorized as personnel involved in troop movements, or it may be some type of military supply which is of utmost importance. Aircraft visibility is only one aspect associated with the definition visibility. Aircraft schedules, schedules can be extremely sporadic and irregular. Although many routine schedules or static routes exist, any military air terminal system must be flexible enough to accept constant changes. Not only must these changes be acknowledged and accepted, but they must be made available and accessible for all involved individuals and locations throughout the military community. Aircraft visibility is not simply an issue of tracking a single aircraft, but obtaining a complete schedule for multiple locations for an extended period of time
