Operational Based Vision Assessment (OBVA) Project Review at SimLabs
The US Air Force OBVA Integrated Product Team visited SimLabs this month to review progress on the OBVA simulator being built by SimLabs. In-house developed projector blending, high-resolution visual databases of the Dallas Fort Worth airport and Sheppard Air Force Base, F-16 Heads Down Displays, and Cockpit inceptor operations were demonstrated and represented on time completion of several project milestones. The Air Force is extremely satisfied with progress on the program. The team discussed preparations for moving the simulator to Wright Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) and agreed on a schedule for installing the simulator pending completion of the special OBVA facility being constructed at WPAFB.

NASA and FAA Meet to Discuss Research Transition Plan for the Precision Departure Release Capability
In November, NASA and the FAA continued their discussion on the research transition plan for the NASA-developed Precision Departure Release Capability (PDRC). PDRC uses NASA's Surface Management System (SMS) to generate precise OFF time estimates and delivers these to a research version of the FAA's Traffic Management Advisor (RTMA) for en route departure scheduling. Major outcomes from this meeting were the identification of an FAA recipient for this NASA technology and the specific transfer deliverables. During this meeting, an overview of the PDRC field evaluation in July was discussed as well as presenting plans for how to proceed with possible follow-on field evaluations and development of the transition deliverables.

NASA Participates in Technical Interchange at FAA Conflict Resolution Advisory Simulation
Last week, the FAA kicked off its first part-task human-in-the-loop experiment devoted to conflict resolution automation. NASA was invited to attend, and it provided a rare opportunity for NASA to interact with a variety of separation assurance researchers and FAA research managers. NASA's representative was provided a detailed look at FAA's technology and development plans for conflict resolution automation, and NASA was afforded an opportunity to share information about its latest technology, plans, and recent simulation results. By engaging with the FAA at this early stage, NASA is seeking to foster a collaborative relationship with the FAA on conflict resolution technology for the future, and that goal was achieved. NASA has been invited to attend the next FAA activity, a large-scale human-in-the-loop experiment scheduled for March 2012. (POC: Confesor Santiago)
