Radar Console Setup
Revision: 21 Mar 2022

Altitude Limits

Altitude limits, displayed on the Main Radar Display, shall include as a minimum, the altitude stratum of the sector plus 1200 feet above the highest and below the lowest altitude or flight level of the sector. 

Code Select List

All sectors that work airspace outside Class A airspace must enter beacon codes 1200, 1202, 1255, 1277, and 4000 in the sector’s Code Select List (CSL)

General Control Procedures
Revision: 21 Mar 2022

3nm Separation Areas

Lincolnton Long Range, Marietta Long Range, Maiden Long Range, Augusta Airport Surveillance, Charlotte Airport Surveillance, Greensboro Airport Surveillance, Macon Airport Surveillance, Lawrenceville Surveillance, Lynch Long Range, Crossville Long Range and Montgomery Long Range Radars have been adapted as Single Sensor Site for ZTL. The Areas are defined per figure 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Figure 1                                                                  Figure 2                                                               Figure 3                                                         Figure 4

CLT Departure SID Speeds

The CLT SIDs contain a 280K published speed for all turbojet aircraft. Unless otherwise coordinated, sectors Unarm 31, Shine 44, and Moped 47 will delete the published speed prior to communications transfer to the next ZTL sector.

Pre-Arranged Coordination Procedures

1. In order to utilize pre-arranged coordination procedures identified in #3, the following conditions must be met:

a. ERAM must be fully operational.

b. The authorized sector must “quick look” the owning sector and maintain display of the owning sector’s data blocks while utilizing the airspace.

c. The authorized sector is responsible to provide radar separation, including wake turbulence separation, from all applicable traffic when utilizing this procedure.

d. The authorized sector must PVD the data block of the aircraft transitioning the airspace to the owning sector.

2. If any of the above requirements are not met or at the request of either sector controller or area supervisor, this procedure is cancelled and individual coordination is required.

3. The following pre-arranged coordination procedures are approved within ZTL:

a. Shine 44 is authorized to control CLT departures assigned the JOJJO SID within the confines of Moped 47 airspace in that area above CLT ATCT airspace without individual coordination.

b. South Departure 21 is authorized to control ATL departures assigned the SMLTZ and VRSTY SIDs within the confines of East Departure 16 airspace without individual coordination.

c. Hinch Mountain 41 is authorized to control CHA departures within the confines of Dalas 05 airspace without individual coordination.

d. Burne 39 is authorized to control ATL departures assigned the PADGT SID within the confines of Crossville 37 airspace without individual coordination.

Logic Check Override (/OK)

Use /OK to override sector eligibility only when one of the following conditions is met:

1. Prior coordination is effected. 

2. The flight is within the control jurisdiction of the sector.

NOTE: Be aware that by entering the wrong aircraft identification (AID) or computer generated identification (CID) in conjunction with the use of /OK, erroneous updates may be sent, the full data block (FDB) may show incorrect information, or the flight plan may be removed from the data base.
