Description

Term Paper Topic

Current Air Traffic Control (ATC) system is a land-based and Waypoints based system. Its roots go back to 30 years when the original ATC called ‘HOST’ was written. It needed massive upgrade/rewriting. Yet, the system was only upgraded partly. What are the short comings and weak points of the current system? What would a future ATC system look like? The ‘C++’ Programming Language has been widely used in developing systems software, application systems, embedded systems, control systems etc. Yet, ‘C++’ is not the primary language used in the current ATC system nor in the older ‘HOST’ system. Discuss in your Term Paper the reasons behind this issue, the future ATC functionalities required in the future ATC system, the potential to use Abstract Data Types, ability of the C++ language to support real-time and mission critical system like the future ATC?
