Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) Project Successfully Completes FAA Enterprises Infrastructure Services Assessment
February 15, 2017

NASA, together with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Communications, Information, and Network Programs (CINP) Team, presented an Enterprises Infrastructure Services (EIS) Assessment on the ATD-2 field demonstration prototype system to an FAA Architecture Review Board (ARB) in Washington, DC on February 8, 2017. The EIS Assessment focused on the interfaces between FAA and NASA information systems necessary for the ATD-2 field demonstration. The ATD-2 Project will conduct a field demonstration of its integrated surface metering and airspace departure scheduling technologies at the FAA's Charlotte Airport Air Traffic Control Tower, Washington En Route Center, and Atlanta En Route Center in 2018. The ARB, comprised of FAA representatives from the System Wide Information Management (SWIM) Program Office, Enterprises Engineering, Mission Support, Telecommunication and Security Offices, reviewed ATD-2 plans for installing equipment in the FAA facilities, SWIM interfaces, and the ATD-2 Integrated Arrival/Departure/Surface (IADS) management system interface with the FAA's operational Time Based Flow Management (TBFM) system. FAA NextGen and NASA ATD-2 representatives presented the ATD-2 overview, including the ATD-2 concept animation video. The CINP Team described details of the interfaces, enterprise services, telecommunication, security and SWIM requirements needed to support the ATD-2 field demonstration. The meeting was very successful, as ARB members expressed appreciation for the ATD-2 presentation and indicated they gained a much clearer understanding about the interagency field demonstration collaboration. The ARB typically conducts such reviews to assess enterprise infrastructure impacts of formal FAA acquisition programs. This review of the ATD-2 field demonstration prototype is being considered as a model for reviews of future, high-impact NASA/FAA prototyping activities. (POC: Shawn Engelland)



NASA-FAA Technical Interchange Meeting for DRAW
February 15, 2017

The Airspace Technology Demonstration 3 (ATD-3) project held a technical interchange meeting (TIM) for the Dynamic Routes for Arrivals in Weather (DRAW) technology with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) at its Headquarters on February 8-9, 2017. More than 20 representatives from NASA, FAA, and the MITRE Corporation were in attendance as well as a representative from the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA). What followed was an engaging one-and-a-half-day discussion that successfully accomplished the objectives of the TIM, which were to: (1) provide detailed answers to FAA questions regarding the DRAW technology and Concept of Operations (ConOps), (2) receive feedback to help NASA revise the draft DRAW ConOps document, and (3) to present and receive feedback on the experiment plan for the first DRAW controllers-in-the-loop simulation, scheduled for May 2017.
