UTM at California Aerospace and Aviation Days
April 5, 2017

NASA's Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) concept and project were represented at the State of California's “Aerospace and Aviation Days” event held at the state capitol in Sacramento on March 28, 2017. Dr. Joseph Rios, the Technical Lead for NASA's UTM effort, served as a panelist in a session describing the joint effort of NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration to enable access to low-altitude airspace for small UAS. The audience included California State Assembly members and industry group representatives. (POC: Joseph Rios)

On March 29, 2017, the NASA Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) Team conducted an Evaluation Requirements Freeze 1 (FRZ1) meeting with forty Field Demo Partners and other stakeholders to gain concurrence on capabilities to be included in the Phase 1 Field Demo, which will go live in September 2017. The FRZ1 meeting was held at the Old Terminal Building at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) where NASA's ATD-2 laboratory (CLTlab) is located. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) participants included representatives from Washington and Atlanta Centers, Charlotte Air Traffic Control Tower/Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON), and FAA organizations for NextGen (ANG), Air Traffic Organization Mission Support (AJV), and Air Traffic Organization System Operations (AJR). Participants also included representatives from air carriers operating at the CLT field demo site, ramp controllers and managers, pilot unions, CLT operations, and the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA). NASA ATD-2 team members presented a detailed review of the ATD-2 Phase 1 Field Demo plans including the Concept of Use, expected operational training and procedures, details on benefits assessment, software release plan, and site maintenance protocol. Field Demo Partners concurred with the ATD-2 Phase 1 Field Demo plans, and the joint decision will be documented in a FRZ1 decision document. The FRZ1 meeting marks the end of the ATD-2 system requirements development for Phase I, and the engineering team will now assess the readiness of the ATD-2 system for shadow evaluation by operational personnel during the next phase of activities, which are Engineering Shadow Evaluations for the Phase 1 Demo (ESE1).
