This is the first of four reports assessing the deployment
of technologies (i.e., equipment and procedures) by the Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA). This assessment of the
1997–1998 deployment of technologies by the FAA to improve
aviation security was conducted by the Panel on Assessment
of Technologies Deployed to Improve Aviation
Security under the auspices of the National Research Council
(NRC) Committee on Commercial Aviation Security.
This is the first part of a four-part assessment that will be
completed in fiscal year 2001.

this regard, I am particularly indebted to the Federal Aviation Administration
for their numerous publications.
Faculty and students at University Aviation Association institutions who have
reviewed material in the previous four editions have significantly shaped this
book. To them I owe a special thanks because they represent the true constituency
of any textbook author....

The objective is to replace progressively voice communication for air traffic management by data communications services for safety reasons and because it supports increased automation in the aircraft and on the ground
In August 1999, the Transportation Research Board (TRB) held a workshop at the
request of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to examine its
Small Aircraft Transportation System (SATS) concept.

o improve aviation safety, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) plans to have in place the initial capabilities of a risk-based approach to safety oversight, known as a safety management system (SMS), by the end of fiscal year 2010. FAA is also implementing new procedures and technologies to enhance the safety, capacity, and
