Abstract: THIS PAPER DISCUSSES the studies made of the traffic system for the supersonic transport at the RAE. We first discuss the design for the oceanic traffic system having regard to the performance characteristics of the aircraft, to the characteristics of the atmosphere at the heights to be flown and to possible restriction of supersonic flight overland. Cost effectiveness studies give desirable values for oceanic separation minima. We then consider the desirable navigation specification to achieve these minima. Finally we discuss the control of the aircraft during the domestic oceanic transition and in the terminal area.
