Collaboration workshop with German Aerospace Center (DLR)
July 31, 2015

Researchers from both NASA Ames and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Braunschweig, Germany, had a two-day workshop at NASA Langley Research Center (July 21-22) to discuss research progress in surface management and future collaboration based on the agreement between two organizations. Research progress made through the collaboration for the past year includes: 1) development of a harmonized concept of 4D surface taxi, and 2) modeling and simulation of airport surface traffic management using surface optimization techniques developed by each organization. Discussions on future collaboration in the surface management subtopic included 1) development of common performance metrics, 2) joint development of a gate turn-around model to be integrated into simulation, 3) integration of DLR's taxi optimization modules into NASAs fast-time simulation environment, and 4) integration of DLR's surface management tool with NASA's NextGen flight-deck taxi simulation.

Dr. Karl Bilimoria serves as Visiting Lecturer at International Space University
July 31, 2015

In July 2015, the Aviation Systems Division's Dr. Karl Bilimoria served as a Visiting Lecturer at the International Space University (ISU) Space Studies Program (SSP) in Athens, Ohio. The SSP is a graduate level professional development program conducted by ISU at various locations around the world since 1988. The intensive nine-week curriculum covers the full range of space related fields including policy and law, business and management, humanities, physical and life sciences, engineering, and space applications. This summer's SSP is being hosted by Ohio University, and NASA is the prime sponsor. Ninety-eight students from 30 countries are participating in SSP 2015. Karl, an ISU alumnus of SSP 2007, supported the Space Engineering department during the week of July 13 by leading a half-day workshop on Spacecraft Cockpit Design, attended by about 20 students who have selected the engineering department for specialized studies. The workshop began with a presentation on the cockpits of various piloted spacecraft over the past five decades, and was followed by a participatory activity where small teams of students designed cockpit displays and hand controllers for the rendezvous and proximity operations phase of an asteroid exploration mission. The workshop was well-received, and informal feedback indicated that the students found it to be both interesting and useful. (POC: Karl Bilimoria)
