Summary and Findings: Survey and Preliminary Study of the Military Implications of Changing Air Traffic Control
Military air traffic control suffers from fragmentation, no policy guidance, and poor coordination among the various programs. Few realize to what extent military aircraft are under civilian ATC. ATC has not kept up with increased traffic, higher speeds, and the mix of planes with different service needs. ATC personnel are seldom consulted on decisions vital to their effectiveness, such as airbase location.
