THE mid‐nineteen sixties saw the introduction of digital techniques into ATC simulation. Because of the long time cycle covering the writing of a specification, the assessment of tenders and the manufacture of the equipment, there are still not many digital ATC simulators in operation. Limiting the count to those which operate in real time and have a simulated radar output, there are probably no more than can be counted on the fingers of one hand. However, on the basis of orders already placed this figure will double by 1972, and by 1974 the increase could well be tenfold.
