Abstract:

THIS SOLICITATION RESPONSE DESCRIBES ACSI'S TEAM APPROACH IN DEFINING, ANALYZING AND EVALUATING THE FEASIBILITY OF THE NEW CONCEPTS PROPOSED FOR PERFORMING AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL (ATC) IN A TACTICAL WARTIME ENVIRONMENT. WE WILL SHOW HOW WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP THE CONCEPTS SO THAT TERMINAL ATC SERVICES CAN BE MADE SAFE AND SURVIVABLE BY UPGRADING CURRENT EQUIPMENT TO INCORPORATE TECHNOLOGIES WHICH REDUCE OR ELIMINATE RELIANCE ON HIGH POWERED EMITTERS (E.G. RADAR) AND UHF/VHF RADIO COMMUNICATION. WE PROPOSE TO ADVANCE AND REFINE EXISTING RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (R&D) CONCEPTS IDENTIFIED AS AUTOMATED TACTICAL AIRCRAFT LAUNCH AND RECOVERY SYSTEM (ATALARS). WE WILL SPECIFY IN PHASE I HOW A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT DEMONSTRATION CAN BE PERFORMED IN PHASE II ON THE ENHANCED JTIDS SYSTEM EXERCISER (EJSE). THE EJSE WAS DEVELOPED BY ACSI FOR THE USAF TO SUPPORT JTIDS - A RELIABLE AND SECURE DIGITAL LINK NETWORK WHICH EXCHANGES DATA AT HIGH RATES AMONG A NETWORK OF AIR-BASED AND GROUND TERMINALS. WE WILL DEFINE AND INCORPORATE IN THE EJSE NEW TADIL J DATA LINK MESSAGES REQUIRED TO CONVEY TERMINAL ATC SERVICES. WE WILL INCORPORATE A SUBSET OF ATC ALGORITHMS FOR A SINGLE GROUND CONTROL UNIT (GCU) IN THE EJSE AND THEN DEVELOP A SIMULATION DEMONSTRATING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE ATALARS CONCEPT IN ENHANCING ATC SERVICES.
