NASA/MITRE Collaboration at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin
August 15, 2019

ATD-2 researcher Ehsan Talebi presents ATD-2 technologies to attendees of the AirVenture event.

NASA and the MITRE Corporation supported the Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2)/Mobile App exhibit at Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) AirVenture, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, July 22-28, 2019. EAA AirVenture is the largest fly-in air show in the world – often referred to as “Oshkosh” – with more than 640,000 attendees this year. The ATD-2/Mobile App exhibit was located inside the NASA Pavilion at Oshkosh and was used to introduce ATD-2 to the General Aviation (GA) pilot community and demonstrate how Mobile App technology can enable their engagement with ATD-2.

The ATD-2 exhibit highlighted the ATD-2 Phase 2 field demonstration at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT), with information on overall benefits/savings from ATD-2 at CLT, as well as how short gate holds enable surface metering and how more efficient overhead stream insertion can reduce delay. Team members described the use of NASA-developed software tools such as the Ramp Traffic Console (RTC) and Surface Trajectory-Based Operations (STBO) Client, and the role of NASA’s Future Flight Central (FFC) simulation facility in software development and testing. MITRE demonstrated several examples of their Mobile App technology and highlighted how this technology allows the GA/Corporate pilot to participate in, and benefit from, ATD-2. They demonstrated to visitors how to use an iPhone to interact with MITRE’s prototype “Pacer” App which enables GA/Corporate pilots to submit a ready-time for their flight and view predicted surface demand at the airport. Better predictions of ready-times for GA flights enable the ATD-2 scheduler to more accurately predict demand at the runway and terminal-area boundary departure fixes. In coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) NextGen (ANG) program office, the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), and NASA, MITRE is testing the “Pacer” App this summer at Dallas Love Field Airport (Texas). The MITRE team also discussed their work at CLT, where Corporate pilots submit a ready-time for their flight via MITRE’s prototype SMS Texting capability. At CLT, information generated by the ATD-2 scheduler is passed to the user via the TFDM Terminal Publication (TTP) that NASA is publishing on the System Wide Information Management (SWIM) research and development network.

NASA organizers estimated approximately 50,000 Oshkosh attendees visited the NASA Pavilion during the week-long airshow.
