Principles of FAA NextGen and the Impact on Global Airport Operations

  1. 1. Principles of NextGen and the Impact on Global Airport Operations Kevin Hightower Chief Technology Officer Lockheed Martin - Transportation Solutions
  2. 2. IAD MAD 0 Air Travel Fatalities* *when no one is flying
  3. 3. IAD MAD Least risk of collision: one at a time…
  4. 4. • Over 1200 “effective” ways to get to Madrid from Dulles • Only 19 fatal accidents due to air traffic control error (link) IAD MADBalance Safety and Efficiency
  5. 5. Ground Based → Satellite Based Navigation and Surveillance Voice → Data Communications Consolidate into New NextGen Facilities Enhance Information Sharing and Collaborative Decision Making Tactical Control → Strategic Flow Management
  6. 6. Ground Based → Satellite Based Navigation and Surveillance Voice → Data Communications Consolidate into New NextGen Facilities Enhance Information Sharing and Collaborative Decision Making Tactical Control → Strategic Flow Management
  7. 7. Ground Based → Satellite Based Navigation and Surveillance Voice → Data Communications Consolidate into New NextGen Facilities Enhance Information Sharing and Collaborative Decision Making Tactical Control → Strategic Flow Management
  8. 8. Ground Based → Satellite Based Navigation and Surveillance Voice → Data Communications Consolidate into New NextGen Facilities Enhance Information Sharing and Collaborative Decision Making Tactical Control → Strategic Flow Management
  9. 9. Ground Based → Satellite Based Navigation and Surveillance Voice → Data Communications Consolidate into New NextGen Facilities Enhance Information Sharing and Collaborative Decision Making Tactical Control → Strategic Flow Management
  10. 10. NextGen Plans Emphasize Collaborative Decision Making & Information Sharing Oceanic En RouteEn Route Traffic Flow Management Takeoff LandingAirport Airport System Wide Information Mgt Airlines Direct Routing & Weather Avoidance Improve Predictability and Reduces Fuel Costs Collaborative Air Traffic Management Allows Airlines to Execute Their Preferred Business Plan Tailored Arrivals & Optimum Descent Profiles Reduce Noise and Fuel Emissions Surface Situational Awareness & Traffic Management Enhance Safety & Reduce Delay
  11. 11. • Various Traffic Management Initiatives – CFMU Slots (-5 to +10) – TFMS Ground Delay Programs – TFMS Miles in Trail – TBFM Departure, En-Route, Arrival Metering – TFDM Surface Metering – Slot Swapping
  12. 12. – Requires Information Sharing and Collaboration • Air Traffic Control • Airlines • Airports – Without it: • Double, triple penalties • Gaming the system • Unhappy passengers • Various Traffic Management Initiatives
  13. 13. • Someday this will run smoothly… • Imagine a world, where information is shared all the way back to the airport… • Are you ready to ingest, process, and make the best operational decisions? Happier customers, more efficient operations, increased traffic and sales revenue
