Briefing for D10 TRACON on ATD-2 Rollout for DFW, DAL at the North Texas Research Station
September 7, 2017

On August 31, 2017, Greg Juro, Traffic Management Officer of the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Terminal Radar Approach Control facility (D10 TRACON), and Doug Boyson, Dallas Love Field Air Traffic Control Tower Manager, were briefed at the North Texas Research Station on the status of the Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) project and the software development for D10 deployment. The ATD-2 displays will supersede the NASA-developed advisory tools currently in daily use in the D10 TRACON, DFW East and West Air Traffic Control Towers, and the Fort Worth En Route Center Traffic Management Unit. The Dallas Love Field (DAL) Air Traffic Control Tower will also receive ATD-2 displays as part of this revitalization. Initially, the DAL displays will provide the tower controllers with situational awareness of departure demands at DFW and assist them in sequencing DAL departures subject to call for release restrictions. The refresh of the D10 and DFW systems and the DAL display deployment will establish the foundation for Phase 3 of the ATD-2 Field Demonstration, which addresses the challenge of coordinating the use of constrained TRACON airspace resources shared by multiple airports.

NASA hosts DLR for a Joint Workshop on Surface Management and Runway Management
September 7, 2017

On August 22, 2017, NASA Ames Research Center hosted researchers from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, DLR) for a three-day workshop to discuss collaborative research in the area of coordinated arrival/departure/surface operations research. Both NASA Ames and Langley Research Centers and DLR's Institute of Flight Guidance have been collaborating for the past five years on Surface Management and Runway Management topics. During the workshop, researchers from both organizations presented their progress, including fast-time simulation of 4D taxi scheduling, validation of 4D taxi concepts via pilot-in-the-loop simulation, and real-time simulation for investigating benefits of a NASA-developed runway management algorithm coupled with DLR's departure management tool (DMAN). Managers and researchers from both organizations also discussed new research topics for future collaboration starting FY18. (POC: Yoon Jung)
