This is the first report in the Quarterly Technical Summary series covering the Air Traffic Control activities at Lincoln Laboratory. The previous work on ATC was included in the General Research Quarterly Technical Summary. Because the allowable effort on ATC is comparatively small, it has been focused on only one facet of the problem; namely, on the data acquisition and communications task. The new group has started to make significant progress in several study aspects of the problem and has also obtained experimental L-band multipath data from an experimental airground test system. When additional support is received, the program will be expanded to include over-all system design studies and the investigation of radar improvements and multilateration systems, both ground- and satellite-based.
