ATD-2 Field Readiness Demonstration and Planning Meeting at NASA NTX
March 9, 2016

More than 25 Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) team members from NASA Ames, Mosaic ATM, and SAIC met at the NASA North Texas Research Station (NTX) February 23-24, 2016 to engage in field demonstration planning, and to train new staff. The field demonstration, which will be held at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT, North Carolina), will begin initial equipment deployment in spring 2016, gradually building into a demonstration of Integrated Arrival/Departure/Surface (IADS) operations involving airport, air traffic controller, and airline personnel, with full system deployment completed and in daily use anticipated at CLT by 2019. The ATD-2 team evaluated surface model tests resulting from the live data systems housed in the NTX laboratory, and discussed and planned software and integration testing of the system's physical architecture, and the field demonstration test and evaluation strategy. Team members toured the local operational facilities (the Fort Worth Air Route Traffic Control Center, the Dallas-Fort Worth Air Traffic Control Tower, and the American Airlines Integrated Operations Center). The meeting was extremely valuable in establishing a common understanding for the ATD-2 team on the many parallel research and development efforts moving forward towards the field demonstration.

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Board Agrees to Sign Nonreimbursable Space Act Agreement with NASA Ames
March 9, 2016

On March 3, 2016, the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) Board agreed to sign a five-year Nonreimbursable Space Act Agreement with NASA Ames Research Center. This exchange establishes DFW Airport as an active participant in NASA's air traffic management (ATM) research and development projects through NASA's North Texas Research Station (NTX). Under the agreement, the Airport Board will supply accurate aircraft arrival and departure times from the gates at DFW, while NASA will supply repeaters of its advisory displays that are currently in use at the airport's air traffic control towers. NTX will be the collection and dissemination point for this data exchange, and will maintain the equipment. The airport will likely use NASA's advisory displays to help manage the ramps it controls at Terminals D and E, and for general situational awareness at its Airport Operations Center. NASA will be able to use the airport data to improve takeoff prediction time accuracy for NASA's advisory tools. (POC: Paul Borchers)
