The interfaces permit safe operation of civilian aircraft in the common ATC system and allow operation of military aircraft in both the common system and within the requirements of special military command/control systems. The paper does a detailed examination of these four areas. The paper concludes with an examination of current trends in ATC system concepts. (Author)
