ATD-2 Engineering Shadow Evaluation Session with Air Traffic Control Tower and American Airline Ramp Controllers
August 31, 2016

NASA's Airspace Technology Demonstration-2 (ATD-2) researchers hosted a second session of engineering shadow evaluations with Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) and American Airlines (AAL) ramp controllers on August 23-25, 2016 at the NASA CLT Lab. ATCT controllers and Traffic Management Coordinators (TMCs) were shown progress of the ATD-2 surface automation system, called Surface Trajectory-Based Operations (STBO), and details of the surface modeling, timelines and information processing that created the displays. The agenda for AAL participants included a description of the Tactical Surface Scheduler and an overview of the ramp management user interfaces. Participants offered valuable feedback on the ATD-2 system and helped refine requirements for future development. John Greene, Acting Chief of CLT ATCT and Terminal Approach Control (TRACON) also attended and participated in the discussions of ATD-2 tools and technologies. The last engineering shadow session will be held September 20 and 22, 2016, combining both ATCT and AAL participants. (POC: Al Capps, Savvy Verma)
