Certain serious problems concerning air safety can be attributed to our poor management of the many ground-to-air intelligence links which terminate in the aircraft. In addition to overburdening the pilot, our present ground-to-air systems do not provide all the functions required for satisfactory aircraft traffic control. This paper describes a possible solution to these problems through a reexamination of our present ground-to-air intelligence-carrying circuits and the design of a Mission and Traffic Control Subsystem which is sufficiently flexible to be utilized in all types of aircraft.
