AWARDS
FAA Excellence in Aviation Research Award

The Traffic Management Advisor (TMA) team was presented with the FAA Excellence in Aviation Research Award for the development of the Traffic Management Advisor, a tool that schedules and sequences aircraft to meet, but not exceed, terminal area capacity. TMA evolved from research at NASA Ames Research Center to become a key component of air traffic management in current, and proposed future, operations of the National Airspace System. After a decade of research and development, TMA is now operational at all 20 US Air Route Traffic Control Centers. Through its first seven years of deployment at six Centers, TMA reduced delays by 72,000 hours and saved airspace users $180 million.
