ATD-2 Tactical Scheduling and Metering Technical Interchange with American Airlines
December 7, 2016

On November 22, 2016, NASA researchers met at the American Airlines Integrated Operations Center (IOC) in Fort Worth, Texas for a technical interchange with personnel from American Airlines' Operations Systems and Decision Support group. The NASA team presented an update on a tactical scheduling and metering capability that originated under the Spot and Runway Departure Advisor (SARDA) research activity and is currently being matured for application to the Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) sub-project. NASA is collaborating with the FAA to demonstrate ATD-2 technologies at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (Charlotte, North Carolina) beginning in September 2017. The FAA has designated American Airlines as the lead air carrier for ATD-2. This technical interchange provided NASA with valuable air carrier feedback which is being used to further refine the tactical scheduling and metering capability prior to shadow evaluations and simulation experiments with the full complement of field demonstration partners in early 2017.

ATD-2 familiarization for American Airlines hub managers
December 7, 2016

On November 30, 2016, approximately 30 American Airlines hub Directors and ramp managers from across the country met in the Charlotte Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) lab (CLTlab) for an overview and demonstration of the ATD-2 system and associated technologies. The ATD-2 system overview included a description of the goals, benefits, and tools developed for use across the various user groups from Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) personnel to ramp managers and controllers. The demonstration in the lab allowed the ramp managers to see firsthand the data integration and exchange between ATCT and the ramp that will be enabled by the system, as well as key differences in features between ramp controller and ramp manager tools. In addition, descriptions of a real-time dashboard and monitoring tool was provided as a way for users to gauge benefits and efficiency metrics. This demonstration provided a venue for a unique discussion and thoughtful comments from the ramp managers' perspective. (POC: Shivanjli Sharma)
