Organization and Innovation in Air Traffic Control

America’s air traffic control system—long viewed as the world’s most advanced—has failed to keep pace with modern information and communications technologies and has fallen behind the capabilities of many other national and regional systems.

Hudson Institute has released a path-breaking study of the problem and blueprint for reform: Organization and Innovation in Air Traffic Control, by Robert W. Poole, Jr. On January 16, 2014, Hudson’s Initiative on Future Innovation hosted Mr. Poole and other aviation specialists for a discussion of his report—and a review of the political flight path ahead for upgrading U.S. air traffic infrastructure.
