The effects of advanced navigation aids and different ATC environments on task-management and communication in low visibility landing and taxi  (2001)
Abstract Header
The Taxiway Navigation and Situation Awareness (T-NASA) system of surface navigation aids have been shown to increase taxi speeds, almost eliminate taxi navigation errors, increase pilots' situational awareness, decrease pilot workload, and increase traffic awareness [1, 2, 3]. In this paper, we investigate how these aids affect task management and crew procedures in different Air Traffic Control (ATC) environments-datalink and datalink redundant with voice. We also examine the impact of these different ATC environments on task management and crew procedures without the T-NASA system. We find that although both types of datalink have benefits, there are also problems associated with them. In addition to the previously described advantages of the T-NASA system, we find that it alleviates many datalink problems.
