Operational Integration Assessment (OIA) Risk Mitigation Simulation-2 Completed
February 13, 2015

From January 27-29, 2015, about twenty simulation participants, subject matter experts, and FAA observers took part in the second OIA Risk Mitigation (ORM-2) simulation. The series of four ORM simulations (three conducted at Ames, one at the FAA's William J. Hughes Technical Center (WJHTC)) are preparing and training the NASA and FAA teams for the OIA in May 2015. The objective of ORM-2 was to train the FAA traffic management coordinators (TMCs) that are expected to participate in the OIA. The OIA will simulate airspace operations for Phoenix TRACON (P50), Albuquerque En Route Center (ZAB), and Denver En Route Center (ZDV). P50 and ZAB TMCs participated in ORM-2. Input was also gained from other FAA participants to understand the impact to roles and responsibilities, policy/procedures and/or software requirements for operations in the NAS. FAA attendees were overall satisfied with the OIA roles and responsibilities defined. OIA testing plans and procedures are in progress. The NASA team is preparing for ORM-3 (February 24-26, 2015 at the WJHTC) and ORM-4 (March 10-13, 2015 at Ames). (POC: Kevin Witzberger)



SMART NAS Test Bed Workshop 2015
February 13, 2015

The four SMART NAS NRA teams presented their first-year results, focusing on preliminary architecture designs for the SMART NAS Test Bed during the two-and-a-half day workshop, January 27-29, 2015. Twenty individuals represented the four teams from 13 organizations:
  1. Boeing (lead) and George Mason University
  2. Crown Consulting (lead), Mosaic ATM, and Pragmeering
  3. Metron Aviation (lead), JVN Communication, and Innovation Laboratory
  4. Robust Analytics (lead), SABRE, IBM, ATAC, JVN Communication, and Flight Research Associates
The teams presented executive summaries during the first half-day of the workshop. The next two days of the workshop were devoted to detailed technical presentations and discussions to fine-tune the design. In the first year, the NRA teams have designed the architecture independently. This workshop provided them the first opportunity for the teams to view each others’ approaches. A major expected outcome of the workshop is for the teams to initiate collaborations with each other and NASA to create the best architecture for the SMART NAS Test Bed, during the second year of the NRA contract. The NASA team intends to leverage the teams’ initial designs along with our experience to start building the SMART NAS Test Bed at NASA. Representatives from NASA (ARC, GRC, LARC), Tech Center's V&V group, SFO Planning Office, MIT LL, UCSC, SaabSensis, and OSI participated. There were 48 on-site and 30 online participants.
