NASA ATD-2, Phase 3, Safety Risk Management (SRM) Meeting
June 13, 2019

On June 11, 2019, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) hosted an SRM meeting to assess the potential risks of utilizing the Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) Metroplex Planner, which is scheduled to begin testing in the North Texas area beginning in mid-July, 2019. The meeting was facilitated by representatives of the FAA Quality Control Group located at the Central Service Area in Fort Worth, Texas, and was required by the FAA prior to embarking on ATD-2 Phase 3 activities. The SRM panel members included FAA management and National Air Traffic Controller Association (NATCA) representatives from the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Tower, Dallas Love Tower, DFW Terminal Area and Fort Worth En Route Center facilities. NASA and airline representatives provided subject matter expert support for this safety decision. The current use of ATD-2 was outlined and compared with the projected expanded uses with new capability being added during ATD-2 Phase 3. No safety hazards were identified by the SRM panel. The next and final step in the SRM process is for the FAA District Manager to review the SRM document, which is anticipated to be completed within two weeks, which will allow new ATD-2 Phase 3 Trajectory Option Set (TOS) capabilities to be used in the field evaluation.
