Abstract : A carrier-based air traffic control system which features enroute trajectory optimization and a computer-aided marshal reassignment procedure is described. Results of computer simulations of both the airborne and shipboard systems are used to demonstrate system concept feasibility. The system description is followed by system performance estimates and hardware requirements estimates. (Author)
