AIMD-97-30, Feb. 3, 1997 (65 pages). Air Traffic Control: Complete and Enforced Architecture Needed for FAA Systems Modernization. [Text] [PDF]
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) lacks a complete systems architecture, or overall blueprint, to guide its development of interrelated systems comprising the air traffic control system. The lack of such an architecture allows incompatibilities to persist among air traffic control systems, which in turn result in higher-than-necessary development, integration, and maintenance costs. Because of the size, complexity, and importance of FAA's air traffic control modernization effort, GAO reviewed it to determine (1) whether FAA has a target architecture(s) and associated subarchitectures to guide the development of its air traffic control systems and (2) what, if any, architectural incompatibilities exist among air traffic control systems.
