2006 (English)In: Human factors and economic aspects on safety: proceedings of the Swedish Human Factors Network (HFN) conference, April 5-7, 2006, Linköping, Sweden / [ed] Clemens Weikert, Linköping: Swedish Network for Human Factors (HFN) , 2006, 1-9 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
Radio communication is currently the primary mean of communication in Air TrafficControl. This is now being complemented by datalink technology to enhance capacity. Toassess the largest benefits of datalink implementation an analysis of ATC radiocommunication was made by timing speech acts from 4.5 hours of communication during asimulation. The results show that address and altitude information account for over 50% ofATC communication. The largest benefits should be gained for communication regardingsector entry or exit since this type of communication is overrepresented in en-route air traffic.
