ATM-X Testbed Team Meeting with General Electric
June 28, 2018

On June 14, 2018, NASA’s Air Traffic Management Exploration (ATM-X) Testbed team, Jim Murphy, Alan Lee, Chok Fung (Jack) Lai, and Kee Palopo, met with representatives from General Electric (GE), Piet Ephraim (GE Aviation/Products) and Abhinav Saxena (GE Global Research), to discuss use cases for an initial collaboration in ATM technology development using Testbed. The group discussed access to data (e.g., System-Wide Information Management, SWIM) and initially use of the data to support GE’s Recovery software application, which uses advanced optimization tools and a configurable rules engine to identify and plan for airline operation disruptions before they occur, or to recover quickly when unavoidable disruptions do occur. The application optimizes the recovery of the aircraft, crew and passenger schedules to prevent disruptions from propagating throughout the schedule. The group also discussed a potential future use case of running multiple Monte Carlo simulations by perturbing flight departure schedules, to support the Recovery analysis. A follow-up meeting is expected to be scheduled at NASA to train GE personnel on Testbed, provide instructions on how to write an adapter for connecting to Testbed, and sharing the knowledge of how to use Testbed for future GE applications.

Dr. Parimal Kopardekar’s keynote presentation at ICRAT
June 28, 2018

The NASA Ames Senior Technologist for Air Transportation, Dr. Parimal Kopardekar, was invited by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to give a keynote talk at the International Conference on Research in Air Transportation (ICRAT) on June 26, 2018. His talk, entitled “Innovate Relentlessly: Embracing Innovation in Aviation While Respecting Its Safety Tradition,” covered the need for change and vision in the approach towards a future air transportation system. The 2018 conference was held in Barcelona, Spain, and Dr. Kopardekar’s talk was presented remotely. ICRAT is jointly organized by the FAA and Eurocontrol, and is a biennial event in Air Transport Research, alternating with the USA/Europe Air Traffic Management (ATM) Research and Development (R&D) Seminar. This year’s conference was hosted by Universitat Polytècnica de Catalunya (Barcelona Tech) and sponsored by Boeing. ICRAT is a forum for young researchers within air transportation to share their work, expand their professional network, and gain new knowledge and inspiration. (POC: Parimal Kopardekar)
