Abstract : The National Airspace Review (NAR) Enhancement Program is a cooperative government/industry effort to review airspace allocations and the procedural and regulatory aspects of scheduled improvements envisioned under the National Airspace System (NAS) Plan as well as other plans. Its purpose is to identify long-term operational considerations of enhanced systems as they evolve. Improved capabilities resulting from equipment already developed or in the process of development will be examined, with attention being focused on operational considerations rather than specific generation of system requirements. Task Group 4-6.1 of the NAR Enhancement Program convened in Washington, D.C., from January 8 - 10, 1985, and January 29, 1985. This task group was responsible for reviewing and analyzing operational considerations based on the development of enhanced airport surface detection equipment. The recommendations contained herein will be submitted to the Administrator, Federal Aviation Administration, through the NAR Enhancement Executive Steering Committee (EXCOM), for consideration and disposition.
