Briefing to FAA's NextGen Integration Working Group Surface Team
February 25, 2016

On Feb. 8, 2016, Mr. Shawn Engelland, lead of the Airspace Technology Demonstration-2 (ATD-2) Subproject, briefed the members of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA's) NextGen Integration Working Group (NIWG) Surface Team. The NIWG, a subcommittee of the FAA's NextGen Advisory Committee, is comprised of several teams. The NIWG Surface Team generated "Recommendation #2" to the FAA to implement departure metering capabilities that are consistent with the FAA's Surface Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) Concept of Operations. The FAA's response to this recommendation was to collaborate with NASA on the proposed ATD-2 field demonstration, planned for Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (Charlotte, North Carolina) in fiscal year 2018. The NIWG Surface Team is led by Mr. Rob Goldman (Delta Airlines) and Mr. Steve Vail (Mosaic ATM) in partnership with Mr. Andras Kovacs (FAA-ANG) and Ms. Susan Pfingster (FAA-AJR). Mr. Engelland’s briefing was very positively received and informed the NIWG about NASA's planned efforts to test departure metering and metroplex capabilities through 3 phases of development and testing.

NASA UTM Collaborator Meeting
February 25, 2016

NASA's Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) team met with several dozen commercial partners, as well as representatives from NASA's Airspace Operations and Safety Program and the Federal Aviation Administration, in Seattle, Washington, on February 17, 2016. Participants discussed how organizations can become UTM service providers in the future. An action item for the NASA UTM group was to create a concept of operations for how multiple, simultaneous instances of UTM might interact. A UTM working group composed of government and industry stakeholders is now in formation to evaluate this concept and presumably use it as a basis for future UTM operations. (POC: Joey Rios)
