On February 2, 2017, NASA demonstrated the Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) system to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Time-Based Flow Management (TBFM) Operations Team Co-Leads and FAA Headquarters representatives from the Future Standards and Procedures Group (AJV-85), Mission Support to the Air Traffic Organization. AJV-85, which sponsors the National TBFM Operations Team, is responsible for all aspects of TBFM system operations, including software implementation, testing, creating operating procedures, and providing training for the operational facilities. Participants included the AJV-85 Group and Team Manager and NATCA National Representative for TBFM. NASA is conducting a field demonstration of the ATD-2 surface system integrated with the operational TBFM Integrated Departure Arrival Capability (IDAC). The ATD-2 familiarization was hosted at the NASA North Texas Research (NTX) station lab (Fort Worth, Texas), which has a replica of the ATD-2 system displays with live data from NASA's lab at the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (Charlotte, North Carolina) (CLTlab). 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. ATD-2 Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from Human Solutions Inc. (HSI) also supported the visit, providing key insights on how the ATD-2 system will be used operationally. NASA gained valuable technical interchange discussions with AJV-85, in particular to understand the FAA's TBFM plans, and informed the FAA on how the ATD-2 system integrates with TBFM.
