Second Workshop on Charlotte Airport Operations
July 26, 2013

NASA researchers and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from Charlotte International Airport (CLT) had a two-day workshop at Ames Research Center during July 17-18, 2013. The SMEs included a retired ATC Tower controller/Traffic Management Coordinator/Supervisor, a US Airways captain, and two US Airways ramp controllers. During the workshop, SMEs walked though CLT surface operations from three different perspectives (i.e., pilot, ATC control, and ramp control) and provided input on the proposed user interface design of the Spot and Runway Departure Advisor (SARDA) tool for CLT ramp controllers. The data gained from the discussions will aid researchers in formulating the scheduler function of SARDA, which will provide ramp controllers with advisories for more efficient push-back operations.

Visiting German Aerospace Center Researcher to the Aviation Systems Division
July 26, 2013

Mr. Florian Linke, Team leader, Air Traffic Infrastructures and Processes at the German Aerospace Center (or Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, DLR) Air Transportation Systems, Hamburg is visiting NASA Ames Research Center for four months (starting July 8) as part of the NASA-DLR Air Traffic Management collaboration. Mr. Linke will be studying aircraft performance modeling on North Atlantic air traffic trajectory optimization and climate impact. Based on climate sensitivity functions for various aircraft emission data provided by DLR, algorithms will be adapted to compute optimal aircraft trajectories for given atmospheric conditions. Different aircraft performance models from NASA and DLR will be used for air traffic and emission distribution simulations and their results will be compared with respect to the influence of their level of fidelity on the climate impact metrics. This research supports the “route optimization under all conditions” collaboration topic. It will provide the basis for further collaborative research work between NASA and DLR on the simulation and optimization of U.S. and European air traffic and its environmental impact.
