Abstract : Data collection, data reduction and test conduct methods for application to future First Article Center (Jacksonville Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC)) testing were examined. Reaction and impact of planned equipment failures upon system operation were also scrutinized. The test results produced the most suitable method for conduct of tests at the Jacksonville Center (ZJX), the most acceptable method of data collection and reduction, and the conditions and circumstances under which failures of specific system components had an adverse impact upon system operations. At the conclusion of testing, it was determined that many discrepancies in system performance, and some deficiencies in system design, remained to be resolved. (Author)
