ATD-2 Stakeholder Summit at Charlotte Douglas International Airport
September 10, 2015

A stakeholder summit was held at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT), North Carolina, on August 18 –19, 2015. The objective was threefold: 1) to familiarize Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and airline stakeholders with the Airspace Technology Demonstration-2 (ATD-2) concept and technology, 2) to connect the NASA research team with subject-matter experts in preparation for smaller but more frequent technical interchanges, and 3) allow the NASA team to directly observe Ramp, Tower, and TRACON operations to prepare for the planned ATD-2 Departure Metering demonstration at Charlotte in 2017. Attendees included American Airlines, local and regional FAA personnel, National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA) representatives, CLT Airport, FAA NextGen leadership, and top-level NASA managers from the Ames Aeronautics Directorate and the Airspace Operations and Safety Program (AOSP). Subject-matter experts presented briefings on airport and airspace operations and the FAA led tours of the CLT Tower and TRACON. The NASA team observed simulations of FAA procedures training for managing converging runway operations and upcoming changes to departure routes and also visited the American Airlines ramp tower. The visit provided the team with a deeper understanding of the techniques used to manage traffic volume and stage aircraft movement, and specifically the interaction of arrivals and departures due to gate and ramp constraints, the management of runway crossing operations, and the dependency of departures on arrivals during converging runway operations. During and after the summit, FAA and airline representatives expressed their appreciation for the overall technical interchange, the strong team that NASA assembled to support ATD-2, and the efforts by the NASA team in preparing briefings and conducting working sessions.
