AbstractThe two most basic requirements for air traffic control are surveillance and communications. The surveillance system in use today is the Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System. It is based on World War II technology and is experiencing severe difficulties as the number of aircraft carrying transponders increases. This paper outlines the present FAA program to develop a new surveillance system which will eliminate the problems, will be compatible with the existing system and will also provide a digital data-link for collision avoidance and air traffic control purposes.
