Radar-based Analysis of the Efficiency of Runway Use *

  title={Radar-based Analysis of the Efficiency of Runway Use *},
  author={John D. Andrews and K L Ma and J. W. Robinson},
The air transportation system faces a challenge in accommodating growing air traffic despite an inability to build new runways at most major airports. One approach to alleviating congestion is to find ways of using each available runway to the maximum extent possible without violating safety standards. Some decision support tools, such as the Final Approach Spacing Tool (FAST) that is a part of the Center TRACON Automation System (CTAS), are specifically targeted toward achieving greater runway… CONTINUE READING
