ABSTRACT
Seizing on the FAA's peak-hour flight operations cap at Chicago O' Hare International Airport, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association predicts similar restrictions at other busy airports unless the agency starts hiring controllers to relieve the spike of retirements widely expected in a few years. The airlines have been responsible for sifting their lists of passengers through watch lists of potential threats compiled by the government's intelligence agencies, but the watch lists aren't complete because the agencies believe some names shouldn't be revealed to private organizations like airlines. The U.S. Army hopes to demonstrate this week the ability to use a laser to shoot down mortar shells, a weapon type that has proven devastating to deployed U.S. forces.
