ATD-2 Familiarization for FAA National TBFM Operations Team and NextGen Management
March 29, 2017

On March 23, 2017, NASA hosted a demonstration of the Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) system at NASA's lab at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport (Charlotte, North Carolina) with live data. The demonstration was for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Headquarters representatives from the NextGen Portfolio Management and Technology Development Office (ANG-C), the National Time-Based Flow Management (TBFM) Operations Team, and the Future Standards and Procedures Group (AJV-85), which sponsors the National TBFM Operations Team and is responsible for all aspects of TBFM system operations. NASA's ATD-2 Field Demonstration will integrate a surface scheduling and metering system with the operational TBFM Integrated Departure Arrival Capability (IDAC). 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 CLT ATCT manager also supported the visit, providing key insights on how the ATD-2 system will be used operationally. The FAA visitors provided valuable feedback on how ATD-2 can help reduce risk for FAA decision support system integration and strategies to ensure successful technology transfer.

ATD-2 IADS System Deployed to CLT Tower/TRACON Back Room
March 29, 2017

On March 23, 2017, NASA's Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) team completed deployment of the ATD-2 Integrated Arrival/Departure/Surface (IADS) prototype system to a back room area in the Air Traffic Control Tower/Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT). This ATD-2 IADS system deployment, the first to an operational facility of a Field Demo Partner, represented the completion of many months of preparation by the ATD-2 team. The NASA team collaborated with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and CLT Airport to establish network connectivity from NASA equipment elsewhere at the airport to the CLT Tower/TRACON complex. The interagency collaboration included cost-sharing contributions from the FAA's Terminal Flight Data Management (TFDM) Program for portions of the CLT Tower/TRACON installation. This back room installation will support live-data shadow testing and training with FAA personnel at the CLT Tower/TRACON as they prepare to use the IADS system operationally when the ATD-2 Field Demonstration commences in September 2017.
