ATC Article

There is an interesting article giving an overview of air traffic control
systems in the August, 1997 issue of IEEE Spectrum
(, but you'll need a subscription to access
the issue online). What I like about the article is it gives a good
overview of ATC technology (one of the first really heavy-duty
computer-supported cooperative work systems) in a relatively short space.
I also liked it because it talked a bit about some of the systems my
ex-coworkers are developing at Raytheon (I worked for Raytheon doing ATC
development on DERD, the German ATC system, for three years).
