compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
MY SOULMATE and I retired and I remember well that we were living in Sittard NL when the first Oil Crisis happened and I was issued a special report for duty-permit to travel to the Eurocontrol • Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre, when petrol rationing was imposed in the Netherlands and a weekend curfew on travel was initiated and it was subsequently in 1973 that our first daughter Nikki was born by caesarean in our local hospital in Sittard.
Having subsequently had an exclusive demonstration from Phillips, of their development of that which was to become their Laservision Videodisc Project, and had explained that instead of frame accessible PAL video. up to 1.5 GB of data could be stored, I produced the outline of a plan to massively improve the efficiency of the handover of Air Traffic between the mainframe computers of the adjacent Air Traffic Control units of Eurocontrol, by way of utilising the Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunications Network [AFTN].
Due to circumstances beyond my own control, however, I resigned from Eurocontrol and returned from my secondment to LATCC West Drayton, where I was given the task of establishing the world's first Air Traffic Flow Control System.
