Historically System Transition was Driven by Safety Demand Implementation System Capability Change Process Performance Selected Actions Accident Public Pressure Loop Aviation Community Loop Stakeholder Pressure Public Pressure Awareness Building Media Courtesy of Professor R. John Hansman, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Positive Radar Control Grand Canyon accident (1955) TCAS Los Cerritos (1986) Response Event

Safety is an Less Explicit Driver US Part 121 Midair Collision Risk Experience Less than 1 in 2.5 E-9 per Flight Hour

Model of System Transition Acceleration and Delay Loops Demand Implementation System Capability Awareness Building Collective Change Process Performance e.g. delay measures Infrastructure and Procedure Decisions Stakeholder Awareness Objective Formation Stakeholder Context Stakeholder Objectives Safety and Approval Processes Stakeholder Decision Equipage Decision Incentivization ADS-B Technology Delay Loop Acceleration Loop Courtesy of Professor R.

Concluding Remarks There are many capacity increasing air traffic management and air traffic control concepts and technologies in research. Very few capacity increasing concepts or technologies are undergoing the systems engineering required to make them an operational reality. Growth of the Air Transportation System is dependent of the continued growth of both the physical infrastructure (runways/airports) and the advances in air traffic management and control concepts and technologies.
