NASA - NCAR Weather Workshop
July 27, 2016

NASA Ames Research Center hosted an Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) traffic management (UTM) workshop July 19-21, 2016, with co-sponsor National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). The workshop brought together aviation weather and UTM researchers and UAS operators to discuss weather impacts and requirements to enable safe and efficient low-altitude UTM. Participants presented on topics such as the UTM system, the current weather aviation system, weather phenomena and their impact on UAS operations, and weather integration. On the final day, two panel sessions were held, one on user experiences with weather in the field and the second on weather research for UAS operations. About 80 people attended the workshop representing industry, academia, government and research organizations. The workshop organizers will take the outputs from this workshop to engage a cross-cutting group of users and weather researchers to inform future weather product development, and suggest research directions to enable all weather access for small UAS operations.

American Airlines training session on ATD-2 ramp management tools
July 27, 2016

On July 20, 2016, members from the Airspace Technology Demonstration-2 (ATD-2) team conducted a half-day training session at NASA's North Texas Research station (NTX), for American Airlines (AAL) operations research personnel on the ramp management tools to be used in the upcoming ATD-2 field demonstration at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT). The tools will also be deployed in the AAL ramp tower, CLT Air Traffic Control Tower and Washington Center. American Airlines is the lead carrier for ATD-2 activities at CLT, and the focal point for all stakeholder airline operators. The ramp tools (Ramp Traffic Console- RTC and Ramp Manager Traffic Console- RMTC) planned for the AAL ramp tower provide pushback advisories to the ramp controllers with the aim of reducing taxi congestion and emissions. AAL training participants provided feedback on how these tools might fit with the existing tools in the CLT ramp tower, and gave positive reviews on the RTC and RMTC. AAL will be represented at the CLT lab shadow evaluation in August 2016. (POC: Vicki Dulchinos and Savvy Verma)
