Visit to John F. Kennedy International Airport by NASA Researchers
April 8, 2013

NASA airport surface researchers visited John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) March 26-27, 2013. The trip to JFK provided an excellent opportunity for technical exchange with the JFK operators and observation of airport surface operations at the JFK air traffic control tower, Metering Coordination Center (MCC), and JetBlue Airways. JFK is the only U.S. airport that has a departure metering procedure to reduce the runway queue size by holding aircraft at the gates or in the designated holding areas, thus enabling a taxi time reduction and fuel savings. The Departure Manager (DMAN) tool is managed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and allows for procedures and tools for Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) between the MCC and participating airlines. The tool allocates departure slots to airlines using a Ration by Schedule (RBS) technique similar to a first-scheduled, first-served technique. Each slot has an associated Target Movement Area Entry Time (TMAT), and airlines are allowed to swap aircraft within the slots allocated to them. NASA researchers have gained valuable insights towards NASA's on-going surface research. (POC: Yoon Jung)
