Abstract : This report presents the results of a detailed examination of operational and economic consequences of adopting organized route procedures in the North Atlantic Air Traffic Control System. It is a natural extension of a previous study, System Analysis of the North Atlantic Air Traffic Complex, ARCON Corporation, R 62-3, Contract No. FAA/BRD-334, December 1962 (AD-294 610). Particular emphasis is placed on the aircraft users' requirements and their use as basic criteria in the determination of the economic implications of organized route systems. Also presented is a technique for the formulation of traffic forecasts and a discussion of their significance to the system designer. Several proposed changes and improvements in the present organized route system are analyzed in terms of their operational and economic significance. Detailed mathematical treatments and descriptions of digital computer simulations used in the evaluation of system performance are given in the Appendices. These are: A. Analysis of Organized Route Geometry, B. Air Traffic Control Model, and C. Flight Time Penalty Evaluation. (Author)
