Abstract : The AATMS study was initiated in an effort to evaluate various concepts of fourth generation air traffic control in the 1995 era. This report discusses the ATC automation requirements of the control center configurations of an upgraded third generation ATC system. Computer sizing estimates are presented for all the control centers in the System B 1995 configuration. Cost estimates, in current dollars, for the computer systems, based on existing technology, are also presented.
