Abstract: As a result of complex airport geometry and high traffic volume, the control of aircraft on the ground is becoming increasingly difficult. Poor weather and night add to the problems. Airport surface detection and control equipment is being developed to assist the pilot and the traffic controller. The cost of these systems, however, may cause some to be eliminated.
