FAA History Lesson -- December 3



From the FAA Historical Chronology, 1926-1996...

”Dec 3, 1993: FAA’s first commissioning of an Airport Surface Detection Equipment model 3 (ASDE3) took place at the Seattle-Tacoma airport. An improved ground surveillance radar system, ASDE-3 had been installed for testing at Pittsburgh in Feb 1990, and FAA had formally accepted the system for operational use in Dec 1991. (See Dec 23, 1983, and Jun 27, 1996.) “
