Abstract : The objective was to first establish a mathematical model of the enroute air traffic control sector which faithfully described the operational picture and then to set about obtaining valid numbers to satisfy the equations of the model. The objectives of the effort were to obtain a means of measuring control work and load in the sector and then develop a technique of designing sectors which balanced the load with the capacity of the controllers.
