NASA participates in USA/Europe Air Traffic Management (ATM) Seminar 2015
July 2, 2015

The 11th USA/Europe Air Traffic Management Research and Development Seminar (ATM 2015) was held June 23-26 in Lisbon, Portugal and focused upon global ATM research topics, with participation from the US, Europe, Australia, and Asia. In total there were 66 papers presented (nine from NASA), in 13 research themes/tracks, including airport operations, trajectory management, weather, and unmanned air vehicle operations. Dr. Parimal Kopardekar served on a panel entitled “Special Session on Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) Research” as a technical expert in unmanned vehicle operations. NASA's outstanding technical work was acknowledged with four papers selected as “best in track” at the conference (three papers from NASA Ames and one paper from NASA Langley). (POC: Sandy Lozito)

NASA's North Texas Research Station (NTX) Hosts Modeling and Simulation Technical Committee
July 2, 2015

On June 26, 2015, the NASA North Texas Research Station (NTX) in Fort Worth, Texas, hosted a visit from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Modeling and Simulation Technical Committee. The committee was briefed on the history and current operations of NTX, including its working relationships with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport, and American Airlines. A laboratory tour included demonstrations of Precision Departure Release Capability (PDRC), the Dynamic Weather Routes (DWR) tool, technologies for novel surveillance at lesser-equipped airports, and discussion of time-based flow control. This was followed by a visit to the FAA's Fort Worth Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) Traffic Management Unit (TMU), where the group observed PDRC in use. The AIAA group also visited American Airlines to get a demonstration of airline dispatch procedures at their Integrated Operations Center (IOC). (POC: Paul Borchers)

Aviation Systems Division Researchers Present at AIAA Aviation 2015
July 2, 2015

The Aviation Systems Division participated in the recent American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Aviation 2015 Forum which was held in Dallas, Texas, June 22-26, 2015. The forum combined several different technical disciplines including Aeroacoustics, Aircraft Design, Modeling and Simulation Technologies, and Aviation Technology, Integration & Operations (ATIO). This annual conference is attended by approximately 1,500 researchers and professionals throughout government, industry, and academia. Members of the Aviation Systems Division presented technical papers covering a number of research areas including: integrated arrival, departure, and surface operations, global aircraft trajectory simulation, the Shadow Mode Assessment using Realistic Technologies for the National Airspace System (SMART-NAS) testbed development, dynamic arrival routes, environmental impacts, airport surface and terminal area scheduling, conflict alerting, weather rerouting, and flight simulation motion parameters. The forum also included several sessions with expert panelists speaking on various aspects of ATM including: NextGen Stakeholder engagement, current air-traffic operations, UAS integration, and transformation concepts in aviation. The conference keynote speakers included the NASA Administrator, Charles Bolden, and the CEO of the Airbus Group, Tom Enders. (POC: Kathy Lee)
