One of the most effective tools for use in air traffic control experimentation, evaluation, and systems studies is the Simulation Laboratory of the Federal Aviation Agency's National Facilities Experimental Center (NAFEC) located at Atlantic City, New Jersey. Currently at NAFEC, systems combining analog and digitalsimulated radar target generation techniques are employed to provide the most comprehensive air traffic control simulation laboratory in existence in the world. This paper describes the FAA simulation systems which have been developed for use in expediting progress in the continuing quest for greater safety and efficiency in air traffic control.
