ATD-2 Lab Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at Charlotte Douglas International Airport
June 30, 2016

On June 24, 2016, U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and NASA Administrator Charles Bolden were joined by representatives from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), American Airlines, and the Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) for a ribbon cutting event, celebrating the official opening of the new Airspace Technology Demonstration (ATD-2) laboratory. “Today is a great moment for the city of Charlotte, for air travelers, and our environment,” said Secretary Foxx. “As a son of this city and this state with its special history with modern flight, I'm thrilled that Charlotte Douglas International Airport is at the forefront of this innovative partnership between DOT and NASA that will have a transformative and lasting impact on aviation.” The ATD-2 project is designing new scheduling tools and integrating them in current FAA systems to provide a coordinated plan that controllers, planners and managers can all use for all phases of flight. The CLT lab is the first external installation of NASA's ATD-2 technologies outside of the existing NASA laboratories. Beginning in mid-July, the CLT Lab will provide a collaboration space for working with air traffic controllers and airline operations to develop technologies and conduct evaluations. The NASA technologies will move into operational facilities beginning September 2017 and be evaluated over next three years.
