AWARDS
FACET Wins 2010 NASA Government Invention of the Year Award

The NASA Office of the Chief Counsel has selected the Future ATM (Air Traffic Management) Concepts Evaluation Tool (FACET) from Ames as its Government Invention of the Year. The team was led by Banavar Sridhar and included team members Karl Bilimoria, Kapil Sheth, Shon Grabbe and Gano Chatterji (UARC). Their outstanding work has made a significant contribution to making our airspace safer, increasing fuel efficiency, and minimizing airplane emissions. This is the first time that a software invention has won the Invention of the Year award. The NASA Invention of the Year award was presented at the NASA Project Management Challenge in February 2012 in Orlando, Florida.
