I was working the local control position. While working various other traffic in the area I observed 3 unidented aircraft, 7-9 mi north of the airport in the vicinity of 2 VFR traffic reporters under my control at altitudes 11000 and 15000', respectively. All unidented targets were on different courses. Small aircraft X at 1100' reported an aircraft in close proximity to him, eastbound. Visibility sighting by myself could not be made; however, I a radar returned appeared 1 mi ahead of X and then turned southbound into the pvd arsa, and then at 3.5 NM mi visibility identify was made by myself. The aircraft Y then turned eastbound out of the arsa. Small aircraft X gave chase. The BRITE radar was used when initial identify of targets was made. The arsa violator at 3.5 NM north of pvd turned eastbound and departed the arsa. Approach control was advised. Identify of the arsa violator was made through ewb tower. Pilot of X advised he was not going to file against the violator in the phone conversation between myself and the pilot.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: NMAC BETWEEN 2 SMA. UNAUTH PENETRATION OF ATA. UNAUTH PENETRATION OF ARSA. PLT DEVIATION.
Narrative: I WAS WORKING THE LCL CTL POS. WHILE WORKING VARIOUS OTHER TFC IN THE AREA I OBSERVED 3 UNIDENTED ACFT, 7-9 MI N OF THE ARPT IN THE VICINITY OF 2 VFR TFC REPORTERS UNDER MY CTL AT ALTS 11000 AND 15000', RESPECTIVELY. ALL UNIDENTED TARGETS WERE ON DIFFERENT COURSES. SMA X AT 1100' RPTED AN ACFT IN CLOSE PROX TO HIM, EBND. VIS SIGHTING BY MYSELF COULD NOT BE MADE; HOWEVER, I A RADAR RETURNED APPEARED 1 MI AHEAD OF X AND THEN TURNED SBND INTO THE PVD ARSA, AND THEN AT 3.5 NM MI VIS IDENT WAS MADE BY MYSELF. THE ACFT Y THEN TURNED EBND OUT OF THE ARSA. SMA X GAVE CHASE. THE BRITE RADAR WAS USED WHEN INITIAL IDENT OF TARGETS WAS MADE. THE ARSA VIOLATOR AT 3.5 NM N OF PVD TURNED EBND AND DEPARTED THE ARSA. APCH CTL WAS ADVISED. IDENT OF THE ARSA VIOLATOR WAS MADE THROUGH EWB TWR. PLT OF X ADVISED HE WAS NOT GOING TO FILE AGAINST THE VIOLATOR IN THE PHONE CONVERSATION BTWN MYSELF AND THE PLT.
