Abstract : During implementation of the National Airspace System En Route Stage A, some Air Route Traffic Control Centers will have complete radar data processing capability while other centers have only flight plan data processing capability. The report describes a digital computer simulation of three versions of a radar beacon code assignment plan designed for this situation. The simulation employs one peak day's IFR traffic in the U.S.A. It determines the number of codes required, the numbers of code changes in flight for various reasons, and the variation of the number of code conflicts with the number of codes used. (Author)
