Abstract : Prior to the conduct of tests pertinent to radar separation standards, a review of previous efforts was accomplished to ascertain the application of existing data towards the establishment of separation criteria within the en route Air Traffic Control National Airspace System, Model 1 complex at Jacksonville, Florida. Data analyses and presentation were directed towards the range and azimuth resolution characteristics and aircraft-separation measurement capability of the secondary-radar/digitizer subsystem.
