ATM-X Successfully Completes Key Decision Point-A Review
October 19, 2017

A multi-Center planning team tasked with defining the Air Traffic Management eXploration (ATM-X) Project successfully passed their Key Decision Point-A (KDP-A) milestone at NASA Headquarters on October 10, 2017. The ATM-X team was given approval to proceed to initial implementation and continue formulating project plans for the remainder of the three-year Phase 1 effort. ATM-X aims to enable equitable access to the airspace for all users, vehicles, and missions by developing and demonstrating a new service-based paradigm leveraging Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) principles, using a build and test approach. This KDP-A review was chaired by the ARMD Associate Administrator and supported by the Directorate Program Management Council, Airspace Operations and Safety Program’s Independent Review Panel and the Center Aeronautics Research Directors. The review assessed the Phase 1 plans, Phase 2 planning, and the trade space and development of a future ATM vision. (POC: William Chan)
