This paper covers several of the significant "inservice improvements," including the introduction of simulation study techniques, new displays, and automatic data processing that have been taken to meet the air traffic control requirements. A review of the three basic simulation methods: graphical, dynamic, and fast time is provided together with a description of the dynamic simulation facilities at the Technical Development Center of the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA), Indianapolis, Ind. The requirements for daylight viewing displays and the programns conducted to obtain TV types of radar displays are included. The report concludes with the introduction of digital computers to perform certain data processing functions.
