Assessment of the capacity of the automated radar terminal systems (ARTS IIIA) for the years 1980-1990 by William Pailen( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The capability of the ARTS IIIA to support future air traffic growth and functional enhancements through 1990 is examined. The approach used is to investigate a few high traffic density sites which are representative of the three current terminal system configurations: single sensor sites (Detroit); dual sensor sites (Chicago, Los Angeles); and Metroplexes (New York). Loading factors are determined for each model site. These factors include the number and type of sensors and displays, the instantaneous traffic counts, and functional capability. The loading parameters are then used as inputs to a processing model, developed in this study, in order to determine if the ARTS IIIA can provide adequate processing capacity. The loading parameters are also used to develop estimates of memory requirements. The results of the study indicate that processing capacity limitations, if not overcome, will likely constrain functional growth at Metroplex facilities but will present no problems for single and dual sensor sites. Current memory capacity limitations are shown to present significant problems for both Metroplexes and dual sensors sites
An assessment of terminal air traffic control system performance with and without basic metering and spacing automation by H. C Wintermoyer( Book )

Criteria for the use of lime-cement-flyash on airport pavements by William Pailen( )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A laboratory LCF assessment program was conducted in which samples were fabricated using LCF materials from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Oregon, and Texas sources. The samples were analyzed for the effects of LCF ingredient variations on modulus of resilience, unconfined compressive strength, fracture toughness, tensile strength, and fatigue. Effects of deicing chemicals on modulus of resilience, unconfined compressive strength, fracture toughness, and tensile strength were analyzed. A field testing program was conducted in which core samples were obtained from Newark, Portland, and JFK airports. The samples were tested for modulus of resilience and unconfined compressive strength. A search was conducted of pertinent recent literature on pavement design and analysis, especially LCF pavements. Keywords: Airports, Runways, Airport pavements, Lime-cement-flyash. (jes)
An Assessment of Terminal Air Traffic Control (ATC) System Performance with and without Basic Metering and Spacing Automation( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Basic Arrival Metering and Spacing (M and S) is being developed as an ARTS (Automated Radar Terminal System) III enhancement designed to aid the terminal air traffic controller in the functions of metering arrival aircraft prior to their acceptance in terminal airspace, sequencing them according to their estimated time at the runway, scheduling each aircraft at fix points along the arrival path to the runway arrival gate and providing control commands to assure precise and proper spacing for aircraft on final approach to the runway. This report details the objectives, methodology, and results of recent National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center (NAFEC) simulation testing analysis of the performance of the basic arrival M and S program performed by Sterling Systems, Inc. under contract to the Federal Aviation Administration. The analysis indicated that the distribution of error about the required separation between aircraft operating under metering and spacing was such that significant runway capacity increases could be attained while limiting aircraft separation violations on final to an acceptable level.
