    Certain serious problems concerning air safety can be attributed to our poor management of the many ground-to-air intelligence links which terminate in the aircraft. In addition to overburdening the pilot, our present ground-to-air systems do not provide all the functions required for satisfactory aircraft traffic control. This paper describes a possible solution to these problems through a reexam... View full abstract»

    The capability of aircraft to navigate through space and to adhere to prearranged schedules directly determines the nature of the air traffic control system and the ability of this system to keep high density traffic moving safely and expeditiously. In turn, air traffic control concepts and practices can be revolutionized by increased use of new navigation techniques. Such a profound effect on the... View full abstract»

    The words ¿Common System¿ have come to mean something very explicit in air user circles. They refer to a system of three parts for air-traffic control, navigation, and communication for the use of all aircraft, military and civil, in the skies over the United States. To date many ¿black boxes¿ have been invented as small parts of the system and these have been ¿worked into¿ the otherwise und... View full abstract»

    This paper summarizes the role of dynamic simulation to date in helping solve current and future air-traffic control and navigation problems, and in evaluating proposed system concepts, control philosophies, procedures and equipments. A brief description is given of the CAA Technical Development Center's electromechanical -optical simulator, and some of its present limitations are outlined. Some o... View full abstract»

    Conservatively sufficient conditions are found for satisfactory operation of many ground and airborne beacon sets in a relatively small area. Necessary conditions must be found in some more tedious manner, since several simplifying assumptions are made in the method described here. However, application of the method often allows a short paper analysis to suffice for showing system practicability. ... View full abstract»

    Two years ago, the scheduled airline industry presented an analysis of the midair collision problem and asked the electronic manufacturing industry to help solve the problem. This paper is a brief status report on the progress to date. It explains why the airlines are interested in a proximity warning indicator, when actually a collision avoidance system is needed, and specifies the airline operat... View full abstract»

  • Physical Aspects of Collision Avoidance

    Both ground-based ATC (Air Traffic Control) and airborne CAS (Collision Avoidance Systems) are needed now and in the future to cope with the problem of collision aloft. They should be considered mutually complementary. The limited form of the CAS known as a PWI (Proximity Warning Indicator) is believed not to be sufficient for safety. The two essential elements of a CAS are 1) an indication of the... View full abstract»

    This paper describes and evaluates the various factors involved in selecting an all-weather, general-purpose, type of navigation system for the radio guidance of civil and military aircraft of all types at long distances from ground-based transmitters. An analysis is made of the factors which affect the range, accuracy, reliability, cost, suitability, and operational utilization of available and p... View full abstract»
