An experimental Video Tracking System has been developed by the Aviation Research and Development Service of the FAA for use in the control of aircraft operating in Transition-Terminal areas. This system communicates directly with a generalpuropse digital computer and is capable of generating and controlling 50 analog video trackers which can operate in either a Track-While-Scan or Rate-Aided mode. Additionally, the system provides aircraft position information to the computer for mathematical calculations of aircraft position errors, and processes computer-derived information for presentation on Plan Position Data Displays for controller use.
