John Robinson - Technology and Innovation

As the technical lead for super density operations in the Airspace Systems Program, Robinson conceived, developed and contributed to innovative and significant technical efforts that will form the basis for the Innovative Concepts in Aviation's Airspace Technical Demonstration. The demonstration will combine novel technologies such as precision time-based scheduling, speed control and advanced communication, navigation, and surveillance to enable sustained peak aircraft throughput utilizing environmentally friendly operations in a terminal airspace environment. The successful demonstration will provide long-term benefit to ARMD, NASA and the flying public by accelerating the integration of a broad range of air- and ground-based technologies needed for NextGen terminal operations.



Aerospace Simulation Research and Development Branch (SimLabs) - Group Award for Program and Mission Support

SimLabs' flight and air-traffic control simulation facilities supported eight human-in-the-loop simulations that evaluated novel concepts and technologies in aircraft control and air traffic management for three ARMD research programs. Simulations included a large civil tilt rotor aircraft concept that facilitates passenger transport to and from urban areas, an emergency landing planner for damaged aircraft, a concept and tools for conducting closely-spaced parallel approaches in poor weather, automation concepts to assist with continuous descent advisories for efficient descents, and runway/departure scheduling concepts for improved airport operations. SimLabs' work furthers ARMD's research goals by evaluating the human interface aspects of novel NextGen and aircraft concepts in operational contexts and by showing the path ahead to implementing these concepts.



Maryam Kamgarpour - High Potentials

Kamgarpour made significant contributions in the use of advanced scheduling, controller-managed spacing, and flight deck-based interval management to achieve the generally competing objectives of fuel efficiency and throughput. Her research findings are the focus of the Aerospace Technical Demonstration proposal recently presented to ARMD.
