    This paper has the object of conveying the broad outlines of the problem of air traffic control and of the various solutions proposed. The problem is defined as the procedure of providing safe and expeditious flow of air traffic. Since aircraft are essentially constant speed devices, control is not possible by varying the speed of aircraft, but rather must be attained by preventing aircraft from f... View full abstract»

    The impending increase in magnitude and complexity of the air traffic control problem makes it necessary to consider a general formulation which would provide the basis for the analysis and evaluation of newly designed equipments or systems. Comparison of the qualities of pictorial and symbolic models leads to a direct analogy which permits aircraft motion to be considered as communication. Variou... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a system plan for utilizing radar as a primary source of position information for the control of air traffic. Through the specific arrangements suggested, this information is integrated with certain additional flight control data so as to present the controller with a co-ordinated picture of the air traffic situation in his area. The composite picture for each control area or ... View full abstract»

    Some of the effects upon air traffic of scheduling the aircraft and of controlling them en route are presented quantitatively in this report in the form of theoretical studies of four problems: (1) relations between the random en route deviations of aircraft from their schedules, and the resulting stack and total delays; (2) effectiveness of a single en route control point when (a) it reschedules ...

    This paper describes the characteristics of the new ATC Radar Beacon System. It discusses the operational problems caused by target overlaps, airborne antenna shadowing, secondary radar reflections, sidelobe interrogations and interference, together with some of the methods proposed for alleviating these difficulties. The paper points out specific applications of the beacon system, including its a... View full abstract»

    In a narrow sense, a definition of an Air Traffic Control study probably would be confined to procedures and equipments used solely for take-off, en route navigation, approach, landing and taxiing. In a broader sense, however, Air Traffic Control can be considered to include all means of increasing accuracy and the scope of application of any electronic device employed in aeronautical operation. T... View full abstract»
