Technical Interchange with Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ)
February 5, 2016

NASA researchers hosted Mr. Ralph Tamburro, the Program Manager of Office of Delay Reduction at PANYNJ for a technical interchange meeting on January 26, 2016. NASA and PANYNJ are collaborating under a Space Act Agreement to conduct collaborative research on efficient surface traffic management through collaborative decision making (CDM). Aviation Systems Division researchers conducted a thorough analysis of surface operations data for two years (2009-2010 and 2013-2014) of the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) that were collected before and after the Ground Management Program (GMP) was implemented. The GMP is a departure metering tool managed by the airport authority to improve efficiency of surface operations CDM among air carriers operating at JFK. The data analysis compared performance measures of surface operations before and after GMP implementation, and PANYNJ data was augmented with publicly available data sources, such as Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), to address missing data. The analysis results demonstrated that the implementation of GMP reduced taxi-out and takeoff delays, but increased gate delays. The results were consistent with prior studies, thus validating NASA's approach towards developing a future model of a surface metering concept. The study was received very positively by Mr. Tamburro. Both parties exchanged ideas for future collaboration that could support NASA's Airspace Technology Demonstration-2 (ATD-2) subproject.
