Dynamic Routes for Arrivals in Weather (DRAW) Workshop
August 19, 2016

On August 10, 2016, the Airspace Technology Demonstration-3 (ATD-3) project hosted a one-day workshop for the Dynamic Routes for Arrivals in Weather (DRAW) technology at the NASA Ames Research Center. The DRAW Workshop was attended by 10 subject matter experts in air traffic flow management with experience in operations during convective weather and 5 representatives from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Traffic organization. The workshop opened with a presentation on the DRAW concept, which is aimed at improving arrival traffic flow when weather is impacting arrival routing into major airports, and a demonstration of the DRAW decision support tool’s current functionality. Following a positive and encouraging discussion, the workshop shifted to discussing operational details of a number of actual weather scenarios. The DRAW researchers gained valuable feedback to help focus the design of upcoming high-fidelity, controllers-in-the-loop DRAW simulations. (POC: Chester Gong)

2016 Oklahoma Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Summit
August 19, 2016

On August 9, 2016, the Unmanned Systems Alliance of Oklahoma hosted the sixth annual statewide summit, whose purpose was to support the unmanned systems industry in Oklahoma. Over 100 people registered for this event, which included presentations from NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Hogen Lovells law firm, and the University of Colorado at Boulder. Discussion topics included how groups are using UAS for environmental monitoring and weather research. The summit also included discussions related to policy, legal updates, and the Small UAS Part 107 FAA Rules. William Chan provided a NASA UTM project overview including research on estimating weather impact to UAS at low altitudes. (POC: William Chan)

ATD-2 University at NASA Ames
August 19, 2016

On August 2-3, 2016, members of the Airspace Technology Demonstration-2 (ATD-2) team presented the fifth ATD-2 University (ATD2U) hosted at NASA Ames. The two days of presentations and discussions covered the foundational FAA and NASA technologies that ATD-2 is building upon: the FAA's 3Ts (TBFM/TFMS/TFDM: Time-Based Flow Management, Traffic Flow Management System, and Terminal Flight Data Manager), NASA's Precision Departure Release Capability (PDRC) and Spot and Runway Departure Advisor (SARDA), as well as the ‘what’ and ‘where’ of ATD-2. Briefings were also provided on the latest TBFM/Surface electronic integration, surface tactical departure scheduling, surface modeling, system analysis, field shadow evaluations and ATD-2 concept of use. Participants included collaborating team members from the FAA's ANG and surface office, and from the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport's Air Traffic Control Tower and Volpe. Future offerings of ATD2U at Ames will be held on an as needed basis. (POC: Al Capps)
