Abstract : The report presents a general approach for modeling the interaction of the major elements of the Oceanic Atc System: the onboard navigation system, the surveillance system and the ATC procedures. This modeling approach includes the time/position dependence in the description of the navigation drift error and the surveillance positioning error and includes the return maneuvers of aircraft receiving surveillance alarms. In addition, both strategic and tactical control strategies are considered. (Author Modified Abstract)
