Airspace Systems/Aviation Safety Research Demonstration: Ames researchers gave a presentation to Dr. Lisa Porter (Aeronautics Associate Administrator), demonstrating simulation study scenarios and technologies for a joint experiment between the Airspace Systems Program (ASP) and the Aviation Safety Program (AvSP), to take place in Fall, 2007. The study will examine the technical and human factors issues associated with 4-D clearance negotiation using data link communications. Issues include the testing of existing flight deck technologies and timing parameters related to clearance negotiation using digital communications. The Boeing 747-400 simulator (CVSRF) was used for the demonstration and will be used in the Fall simulation. The researchers briefed Dr. Porter and her staff, including the program directors of the three Aeronautics programs, on the simulation plans, scenario events and research goals. Many of the simulator and research staff at Ames also supported the demonstration by operating the simulator and providing clearance data during the simulated flight. Dr. Porter "flew" as a pilot in an example scenario, and also used some of the flight deck technologies for reviewing and accepting 4-D clearances.

SBIR Phase I - ACES Model Composition and Development Toolkit to Support NGATS Concepts: A prototype of the front end user interface for the toolkit being developed in the SBIR Phase I effort entitled "ACES Model Composition and Development Toolkit to Support NGATS Concepts" was demonstrated at the mid-term review. This interface provides a graphical editor to create, configure and interconnect agents and activities. The user can drag and drop from a library of models, interconnect the inputs and outputs of these models and run a simulation. A basic application of all these functionalities was demonstrated in the prototype. Also demonstrated was the toolkit adapter that allows users to import domain models written in Matlab®. Other language adapters can be added. The specific demonstration use case focused on the addition of new links and nodes to the ACES-X Terminal Area Plant (TAP) graph.
