In 1986, the Federal Aviation Administration formed a contract with three companies to re-engineer a major portion of the New York terminal approach control (TRACON) application software—the software that supports air traffic control in the New York City and Newark, New Jersey, area. This paper discusses the techniques used to successfully re-engineer the software to run on an IBM System/370™, illustrating that real-time software can be logically converted from one computer to another, reliably and cost-effectively.
