Abstract

A review was conducted of separation assurance and collision avoidance operational concepts for the next generation air transportation system. The concepts can be distributed along two axes: the degree to which responsibility for separation assurance and collision avoidance is assigned to the controller verses the pilot(s), and the degree to which automation augments or replaces controller and pilot functions. Based on an analysis of the implications of these concepts from a human factors standpoint, as well as the technological readiness of the concepts, it appears that some form of supervisory control of separation by controllers is the most viable concept.
