Aviation Systems Division paper wins ATCA Technical Writing Award
October 21, 2013

A paper authored by Harry Swenson and John Robinson (NASA Ames Research Center) and Steve Winter (Raytheon Technical Services Co.) received first place in the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) Technical Writing Awards. The paper, NASA's ATM Technology Demonstration-1: Moving NextGen Arrival Concepts from the Laboratory to the Operational NAS” was published in the July 2013 issue of the Journal of Air Traffic Control. It describes the development process employed by the ATD-1 project to test the integration of air traffic control automation technologies and implement them in an FAA Automation Platform (the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System, or STARS) in an air traffic control simulation laboratory at NASA Ames. The ATD-1 operational concept, including descriptions of the Traffic Management Advisor with Terminal Metering (TMA-TM), Controller Managed Spacing (CMS) and Flight-deck Interval Management (FIM) components, and challenges and lessons learned in the integration of these elements, were described.
