On March 30-April 2, 1998, UCLA Extension will present the short
course, "Satellite-Based Communications, Navigation, and Surveillance
for Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM)", on the UCLA campus in Los

The instructors are Mr. Cary R. Spitzer, MS, President, AvioniCon,
Inc.; Mr. Wayne Aleshire, Captain, United Airlines; Mr. Michael J.
Morgan, Honeywell; and Mr. Roy T. Oishi, ARINC, Inc.

After a decade of work by the Future Air Navigation Systems committees
of the United Nations-affiliated International Civil Aviation
Organization (ICAO), the aviation industry is implementing
satellite-based communications, navigation, and surveillance for air
traffic management (CNS/ATM) on a global basis.  CNS/ATM promises
substantial increases in airspace system capacity and benefits to both
aircraft operators and air traffic services providers.

This course begins with a review of avionics concepts to ensure a
solid foundation for subsequent material.  The rest of the course
traces the development of the CNS/ATM concept, introduces its
underlying principles, and presents each of the three cornerstone
technologies--communications, navigation, and surveillance--from an
airborne perspective.  These technologies are discussed in detail by
experts who contributed to the design and development of the avionics
intended to reap CNS/ATM benefits which are now being installed on
many aircraft.  The course concludes with a summary of real-world
experience by a major airline that has already equipped some of its
fleet with first-generation CNS/ATM systems.

This course is intended as an introduction to CNS/ATM. The level of
detail presented makes the course suitable for a broad range of career

backgrounds including technology (both air- and ground-based aviation
systems), business development, and technical management.

The course fee is $1495, which includes extensive course materials.
