The terminal-area air traffic control (ATC) operation is defined and a classification provided of its problem areas which demonstrates that the use of both general purpose computation and special-purpose data processing are indicated. The characteristics of the digital-computing equipment for the functions of tracking, scheduling, and guidance are described. The over-all capabilities of the system are presented, including a description of the facilities for entry, sensing, communication, and display of pertinent data.
