Sherlock ATM Data Warehouse Produces Analysis-ready, End-to-End Track and Flight Data for the Entire US Airspace
June 22, 2016

In a first for NASA, as of June 13, 2016, the Aviation Systems Division's Sherlock ATM (air traffic management) Data Warehouse now produces analysis-ready, end-to-end track and flight plan data for the entire US National Airspace System (NAS). This significant accomplishment will enable ATM researchers to query flight information at the highest possible resolution, from a clean dataset that spans all known US track locations for a flight. The processed data merges actual flight plan and track records from 77 different FAA facilities, including 20 Centers, 27 terminal radar approach controls (TRACONs), and 30 airport surface areas. The Sherlock team overcame challenges in correlating and rationalizing data from 77 different FAA feeds that may have overlapping and conflicting positions, flight plans, time, and airspace references. Currently Sherlock has three months of this merged data available. Over the next several months of processing, data going back to 2011 will be processed and added. Current data is processed overnight for rapid availability. All of the data is being added to the Big Data system for ease of analysis. This work was enabled by a subcontract to ATAC, funded by the SMART-NAS Testbed project. (POC: Michelle Eshow)


NASA/FAA TBFM Integration Strategy Meeting
June 22, 2016

The NASA ATD-2 team met with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) organizations representatives in Washington, DC, June 16, 2016. The FAA organizations included the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), ANG (NextGen), Time-Based Flow Management (TBFM) and Terminal Flight Data Manager (TFDM), Mission Support, System Operations, and Lockheed Martin representatives, to discuss the TBFM integration strategy for field demonstrations. NASA proposed integrating the ATD-2 surface system (TFDM stand-in) with the operational TBFM IDAC (Integrated Departure Arrival Capability) web services routing tool (WSRT) capability to enable demonstration of 3T-like integration in the field. The proposal gained support to proceed with more detailed planning of the software changes required for the TBFM release 4.7 scheduled for Spring of 2017. Follow-on meetings to discuss testing procedures, security requirements and the FAA/NASA network architecture to support the proposed strategy are in progress. (POC: Jane Thipphavong)
