MERGING TARGET PROCEDURES
Except while they are established in a holding
pattern, apply merging target procedures to all radar
identified:
1. Aircraft at 10,000 feet and above.
2. Turbojet aircraft regardless of altitude.
3. Presidential aircraft regardless of altitude.
Aircraft not in contact with an ATC facility may squawk
_____ in lieu of 1200 while en route to/from or within the
designated fire fighting area(s).
1255
VFR aircraft which fly authorized SAR missions for the
USAF or USCG may be advised to squawk ____ in lieu of
1200 while en route to/from or within the designated search
area.
1277
An action taken to transfer the radar
identification of an aircraft from one controller to
another controller if the aircraft will enter the
receiving controller’s airspace and radio communications
with the aircraft will be transferred.
Handoff
The term used to inform the
controller initiating a handoff that the aircraft is
identified and approval is granted for the aircraft to
enter the receiving controller’s airspace.
Radar Contact
A physical or automated action
taken by a controller to transfer the radar identification
of an aircraft to another controller if the aircraft
will or may enter the airspace or protected airspace of
another controller and radio communications will not
be transferred.
Point out
The term used to inform
the controller initiating a point out that the aircraft is
identified and that approval is granted for the aircraft
to enter the receiving controller’s airspace, as
coordinated, without a communications transfer or
the appropriate automated system response.
Point out approved
A term used to transfer radar identification
of an aircraft to another controller for the purpose
of coordinating separation action. Traffic is normally
issued:
1. In response to a handoff or point out;
2. In anticipation of a handoff or point out; or
3. In conjunction with a request for control of an
aircraft.
Traffic
The term used to inform the
controller issuing the traffic restrictions that the
traffic is identified and that the restrictions issued are
understood and will be complied with.
Traffic Observed
PASSING OR DIVERGING
Aircraft are on opposite/reciprocal courses
and you have observed that they have passed each
other; or aircraft are on same or crossing courses and
one aircraft has crossed the projected course of the
other and the angular difference between their
courses is at least ___ degrees.

2 1/2 miles.
EDGE OF SCOPE
When less than 40 miles from the antenna−___ miles from edge of scope.
3
EDGE OF SCOPE
When 40 miles or more from the antenna−
__ miles from edge of scope.
5
Approach Course Interception Angle-Distance from interception
point to approach gate:Less than 2 miles or triple
simultaneous ILS/MLS
approaches in use
Maximum interception
angle:20 degrees
Approach Course Interception Angle-Distance from interception
point to approach gate:2 miles or more
Maximum interception
angle:30 degrees
(45 degrees for helicopters)
When weather reports indicate that an aircraft will
likely encounter IFR weather conditions during the
approach, take the following action as soon as
possible after establishing radar identification and
radio communications (may be omitted after the first
approach when successive approaches are made and
the instructions remain the same):
Lost COMMS
Inform the aircraft when it is approaching glidepath
(approximately __ to ___ seconds before final
descent).
10,30
