Terminal-Area Traffic Management with Airborne Spacing  (2005)
Abstract Header
Airborne Separation Assurance System (ASAS) applications1 promise a range of benefits, from improved all- weather situation awareness for flight crews to decreased air traffic controller workload through delegation of separation responsibility to equipped aircraft. In the category of ASAS applications called "airborne spacing" (ASAS 2), air traffic controllers maintain separation responsibility, but may instruct flight crews to achieve and maintain a spacing interval to a specified reference aircraft using on-board guidance. Delegating spacing responsibility to flight crews of suitably equipped aircraft may reduce controller workload and required air-ground communications.A
