Abstract : Background, requirements, system descriptions, task descriptions, activities, schedules and funding levels are presented for the Airport Surface Traffic Control (ASTC) program for the years 1972-1979. Systems, subsystems proposed concepts and equipments are to be defined and specified in a system context and will then be designed, developed, tested, and evaluated for introduction in modular fashion into the existing airport environment. Modular structure of the system will permit system configurations to be tailored to the needs of the individual airport and will permit modular expansion of either capacity or function to meet the airport's needs as they evolve with time.
