Abstract : The report supplements the work presented in Volumes I and 2 which confine themselves to the study performed concerned with ARTCC operations. This volume describes the adaptation of the Relative Capacity Estimation Process to terminal ATC operations, the study findings and implications for effective automation in the terminal areas, quantitative capacity estimates, and predictions for several levels of automation. A comparison of the results obtained for terminal ATC operations with those obtained for the ARTCC operations is presented. (Modified author abstract)
