The purpose of this paper is to point out in general terms how ground support equipment has increased in size, quantity, and complexity from earliest civil aircraft days to the present, and to extrapolate these trends into the near future. It points out how relationships have developed between air lines, manufacturers, and vendors for design and procurement of equipment and touches briefly on trends of this relationship. It further notes the present status of such equipment and denotes at some length how this equipment will be used and expanded to satisfy the requirements of an SST program.
