NASA-FAA Technical Interchange Meeting for MFCR and DRAW
August 2, 2017

NASA's Airspace Technology Demonstration-3 (ATD-3) Sub-Project held a Technical Interchange Meeting with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) at their Headquarters. The meeting focused on Multi-Flight Common Route (MFCR) on July 25-26, 2017, and a working group meeting for Dynamic Routes for Arrivals in Weather (DRAW) on July 27, 2017. The meetings were also attended by representatives from the MITRE Corporation and Human Solutions, Inc. The meeting covered the MFCR concept of operations and algorithm and the results of the evaluation conducted in November 2016 and plans for Human-in-the-Loop (HITL) simulation in September 2017. The FAA Advanced Flight-Specific Trajectories (AFST) Program Manager emphasized that MFCR functionality will be incorporated in FAA's plans for AFST. During the DRAW working group meeting, NASA's understanding of the single-scheduler arrival metering, along with the Extended Metering and Coupled Scheduling (XM/CS) aspects were discussed; several scenarios were presented to represent the concept of operations and implementation details. The NASA team gained positive feedback on NASA's draft scope for DRAW work. The progress made during the meetings will help design the MFCR and DRAW HITLs during September-October 2017 and future work. (POC: Kapil Sheth)



Vertical Motion Simulator (VMS) presentation at Joint Aerosciences/Flight Mechanics Technical Discipline Team Meeting
August 2, 2017

Mr. Bimal Aponso was invited to present an overview of the Ames Vertical Motion Simulator (VMS) and its contributions to aviation at the Joint Aerosciences/Flight Mechanics Technical Discipline Team/Capability Leadership Team (TDT/CLT) Meeting, July 25-27, 2017 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The presentation described versatility of the VMS as exemplified by its critical contributions to Vertical/Short Takeoff and Landing (V/STOL) aircraft design and flight control, understanding human cueing modalities, and Space Shuttle engineering development and pilot training. The presentation also covered current and potential future research and development at the VMS including prospective sub-orbital aircraft, NASA's New Horizons aircraft, and motion cueing research for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Bimal is the Center representative to the Flight Mechanics CLT and the audience consisted of space and atmospheric flight mechanics specialists from all the NASA research Centers and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
