ATD-2 Phase 3 Field User Meeting
October 10, 2019

ATD-2 presentation to training participants

On October 2, 2019, the NASA Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) team met with the six field user groups that are involved in the ATD-2 Phase 3 evaluation: Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Tower, Dallas Love Tower, DFW TRACON, Fort Worth Center, American Airlines, and Southwest Airlines. The primary objectives of the meeting were to determine the field facilities’ continued interest in utilizing the ATD-2 Trajectory Options Set (TOS) feature during the upcoming months, and discuss potential enhancements to the system as part of the fiscal year 2020 evaluation. The field users unanimously affirmed that they would like to continue utilizing the TOS features on a target of opportunity basis, and they agreed that Fort Worth Center would be the focal point for TOS activation and coordination. The NASA team will continue to provide support during this time frame including additional training and onsite support as needed. Enhancements for fiscal year 2020 will be evaluated and prioritized by the NASA ATD-2 team.



NASA-Boeing ecoDemonstrator Contract Signed
October 10, 2019

A Basic and Applied Aerospace Technology (BAART) contract between NASA and Boeing was signed on September 30, 2019 for the Boeing ecoDemonstrator (ecoD) program, which is a flight test research program that uses modified aircraft to develop and test aviation technologies intended to reduce the ecological footprint, improve fuel economy, and reduce the noise of transport aircraft. NASA will be participating in the 2020 ecoDemonstrator test flights, scheduled to take place March–July 2020, and will be collaborating with Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on testing the Tailored Arrival Management (TAM) capability, which relies on NASA’s Autoresolver technology. The research effort is focused on demonstrating and improving autonomous operations and trajectory-based operational efficiency.
