ATD-2 Highlighted at Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) Meetings
April 18, 2017

On April 11-12, 2017, NASA engaged broadly with industry and FAA on Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) during CDM meetings held in Dallas, Texas. ATD-2 demonstrations were also provided at the NASA North Texas Research Station (NTX) to the CDM Automation Team (CAT) and Surface CDM Team (SCT) on April 10th and 11th. Also participating in the demos at NTX were FAA managers (e.g., Director, System Operations; Manager, ATO Operational Concepts Group; Manager, Airport Surface Efficiency Group) and ATD-2 Field Demo Partners from CLT Tower/TRACON, NATCA, and American Airlines. At the SCT meeting on April 11th, NASA presented insights from field demo partners gathered during shadow evaluations and simulations along with details on ATD-2 scheduling and metering functions. The following day, ATD-2 was the primary topic presented by the SCT during their progress update at the yearly CDM Spring General Session. During this Session, NASA presented the ATD-2 project plan and technology maturation effort leading up to the Phase 1 Field Demonstration. SCT representatives described how ATD-2 is “bringing to life” the Surface CDM concept that resulted from nearly a decade of collaboration between FAA and industry. A primary topic of discussion was ATD-2's need for departure intent data from airlines in the form of Earliest Off Block Time (EOBT) and the need for scheduling algorithms that are robust to varying levels of EOBT quality. Also discussed was how mobile applications for ATD-2 could allow data exchange directly with pilots for departure scheduling at small airports or for operators not equipped with ramp facilities, e.g., general aviation. NASA also met with FAA managers to discuss how ATD-2 will influence requirements for the Terminal Flight Data Manager (TFDM) program, under which NextGen surface automation will be incrementally deployed nationwide.
