AWARDS
3D-PAM Team Receives Prestigious FAA Award

On June 10, 2013, the Three-Dimensional Path Arrival Management (3D-PAM) Team was presented with the 2012 FAA Excellence in Aviation Research Award in a ceremony at the FAA Technical Center in Atlantic City. The Excellence in Aviation Research Award is presented each year to worthy individuals or institutions conducting research that supports the FAA's core goals to enhance safety, improve efficiency, increase capacity in the national airspace system, and continue to lay the groundwork for the Next-Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). Only one individual and one team were so recognized this year. The team was cited for conceiving, developing, and transferring to the FAA new technology and procedures to expand the capacity of the NextGen air traffic management system while simultaneously reducing the environmental footprint of aviation. Developed in concert with the FAA, Boeing and airline partners, this technology is a key element of the multi-agency NextGen effort to transform U.S. aviation operations.

On September 17, 2013, in recognition of the FAA award, Dr. John Cavolowsky, Director of the Airspace Systems Program Office, presented the 3D-PAM Team with award certificates in a small ceremony at NASA Ames Research Center. He commended the team on this terrific recognition and extended his appreciation for the effort and dedication along the way. He specifically remarked about how the success of this effort has been noticed at the highest levels of NASA and the FAA, and that this project has served as a pathfinder for subsequent NASA/FAA successes such as the recent transfer of the Pre-Departure Release Capability (PDRC) and the upcoming deliveries stemming from the ATM Technology Demonstration #1 (ATD-1) project.
