NASA-DLR Workshop on Surface Traffic Management
September 9, 2013

NASA Ames Research Center hosted a group of researchers from the Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR, the German Aerospace Center) for a three-day workshop August 21-23, 2013, on the topic of surface traffic management. NASA and DLR have a formal agreement to collaborate on surface management research and began collaborative efforts in December 2012. During the workshop, each organization briefed the current status of their respective surface management research. The teams brainstormed and discussed in detail how to create a common integrated concept of surface management, discussed comparisons of concepts and technologies for surface management between the US and Europe, and identified commonalities and differences in operational procedures and traffic management concepts. The teams agreed to complete a joint draft concept document by the end of October 2013. (POC: Yoon Jung)



Raytheon identifies near term implementation for T-TSAFE
September 9, 2013

This image shows two NASA researchers sitting in front of an air traffic controller simulation station integrated with new terminal T-SAFE technologies in the Air Traffic Management Laboratory at NASA Ames Research Center.

The Terminal Tactical Separation Assured Flight Environment (T-TSAFE) is a tactical conflict detection and resolution tool for terminal airspace. T-TSAFE uses a combination of flight plan, nominal routing, terminal area procedures, dead reckoning, and flight intent to improve conflict prediction accuracy and reduce false alerts. Raytheon was tasked to identify the inputs available in STARS (Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System) that could be used by the T-TSAFE algorithm for a near term implementation. They identified that most of the inputs were either available or T-TSAFE had a work around for them. They identified a few flight-intent inputs critical to T-TSAFE performance such as nominal interior routes (routes connecting the arrival route to the runway) that are not available in the current version of STARS. However these critical flight-intent inputs could be added as static files to the STARS software making the integration of T-TSAFE in STARS feasible in near-term. Next steps involve evaluating T-TSAFE performance with and without the near-term feasible flight-intent information available. Further exploration of architecture for the implementation of T-TSAFE in STARS is also planned. (POC: Huabin Tang, Savvy Verma, Shannon Zelinski)
