As part of NextGen, Automated Terminal Proximity Alert software alerts air-traffic controllers of errors in aircraft spacing to reduce the number of times planes circle airports. "If we can properly line up the aircraft as they approach the airport, it improves safety and the overall efficiency of the system," said Jeff Price, an associate professor in aviation and aerospace science at Metropolitan State University in Denver.
