Abstract : Volume I is a summary of the technical and operational analyses involved in the study. It defines performance assurance and the future requirements for performance assurance in the FAA. The status of assurance in the operation, use, and maintenance of the current air navigation and traffic control system is examined to determine the gaps between requirements and capabilities. This initial analysis concludes with the proposal of some general concepts for improving performance assurance in the future. These concepts will be refined and evaluated in the concluding phase of the study. (Modified author abstract)
