DENERY AND HEINZ ERZBERGER Ames Research Center Summary A new concept for air traffic management in the terminal area, implemented as the Center-TRACON Automation System, has been under development at NASA Ames in a cooperative program with the FAA since The.

development of computer automation tools to aid air traffic controllers in traffic management within the extended terminal area. The product of this work is a set of tools referred to as the Center/TRACON Automation System (CTAS).

The CTAS has undergone several years of laboratory investigation, and recently the FAA. A new concept for air traffic management in the terminal area, implemented as the Center-TRACON Automation System, has been under development at NASA Ames in a. The Center-TRACON Automation System (CTAS) is a collection of planning The Center-TRACON Automation System book control software functions that generate landing schedules and advisories to assist air traffic controllers in handling.

The Center TRACON Automation System (CTAS) provides automation tools for planning and controlling arrival air traffic. CTAS generates air traffic advisories designed to increase fuel efficiency, reduce delays, and provide automation assistance to air traffic controllers in achieving acceptable aircraft sequencing and separation as well as improved airport capacity.

The Federal Aviation Administration is developing a set of software tools, known as the Center-TRACON Automation System (CTAS), to assist air traffic controllers in their management and control tasks. CTAS originated at National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research Center, where prototypes continue to evolve.

exposure as part of the Center-TRACON Automation System (CTAS) development process, using on-site system evaluations with active controllers and representative traffic flows and conditions. Field testing is regarded as integral to the development process and iterates until a match is achieved between the system and context for its use.
