In accordance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements1 for a large-scale multisystem of high availability, the IBM 9020 system has been designed to provide automated aids for the processing and updating of flight information. Major tasks are to aid in establishing and maintaining radar identification of aircraft and to automate the display of altitude or flight-level information with aircraft position. The system will also provide an automation base for subsequent improvements in air traffic control.
