NASA ATD-2 Phase 3 Stormy 2020 Training Videos and Presentations
July 8, 2020

The NASA Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) team has adjusted its training practices in response to the COVID-19 working conditions and visitor restrictions, in place since March 2020. Originally, the team was scheduled to provide face-to-face, hands-on training at each of the seven field demonstration sites in the North Texas area which included both flight operator and air traffic control facilities. To continue the training mission under remote working conditions, the ATD-2 team produced training videos and slide presentations with embedded audio explanations for each training site. The training content was reorganized into smaller segments that were designed to explain specific functions of the ATD-2 system, and were tailored to the specific user group. For instance, the flight operator videos were made with examples related to that individual airline to further enhance the learning experiences with real world use cases. The videos can be utilized both as an on the spot training resource by active, operational personnel or in a more formal training environment. This training material delivery approach has the added benefit of allowing later updates with new training resources or other modifications as user capability changes. Feedback from the field users has been very positive regarding the web site training materials.

UTM Project and Smart Mobility at Ames team returns to Center for Flight Operations
July 8, 2020

A series of small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) operations were conducted by the UAS Traffic Management (UTM) project and Smart Mobility at Ames teams, at the Moffett Field (CA) airport N248 ramp area, June 29-30, 2020. The purpose of these operations was to check the feasibility of several flight profiles prepared for testing the Time-Based Conformance Monitoring (TBCM) concept, an advanced UAS Service Supplier (USS) feature designed to enable the continuation of planned UAS missions in a communications-challenged area. Due to COVID-19, a return-to-work plan that contained strict safety guidelines, such as social distancing and use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) was developed and approved by the Center. The test participants followed the guidelines, safely completing the two-day operation with successful data collection. The flight profile feasibility analysis will be performed with the collected data, and the team is planning to return to the test range for additional data collection to further test the TBCM concept.
