NASA hosts a Technical Interchange Meeting with Researchers from NLR
April 4, 2014

The Aviation Systems Division hosted two researchers from the National Aerospace Laboratory (Nationaal Lucht- en Ruimtevaartlaboratorium, or NLR), the Netherlands, on March 24-25, 2014. This NASA/NLR collaboration is focused on airport surface traffic management, and both organizations are working toward integrating NLR's surface conflict detection functionality, called the Separation Bubble Tool (SBT), into NASA's Spot and Runway Departure Advisor (SARDA) tool adapted to Charlotte International Airport (CLT). The integrated functionality will be tested in a future SARDA human-in-the-loop simulation at NASA Ames Research Center's FutureFlight Central (FFC) facility. The SARDA tool and NLR's SBT each operates in distinct portions of the airport surface, with SARDA focusing in the ramp area and SBT operating in taxiways and runways. The NASA/NLR teams successfully provided additional CLT traffic scenarios to the NLR team, and defined the connectivity protocol for use in a real-time simulation environment. The team is now investigating the information technology requirements in order to perform an initial integration of SARDA and SBT. (POC: Ty Hoang)


NASA presents ATM research to visiting DLR delegation
April 4, 2014

Aviation Systems Division (code AF) researchers participated in the visit of the delegation from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, or DLR) to Ames Research Center on March 24-25, 2014. Professor Rolf Henke (Executive Board, Aeronautics), Mr. Horst Hüners (Aeronautics Program Director), and Professor Dirk Kügler (Director of the DLR Braunschweig Institute of Flight Guidance) attended, along with staff from the DLR Bureau in Washington, DC. AF Division staff presented information on modeling environmental mitigation strategies, surface automation research, controller managed spacing for the Air traffic management Technology Demonstration-1 (ATD-1) and also provided demonstrations and tours of the Vertical Motion Simulator, FutureFlight Central, and the Advanced Concepts Flight Simulator.
