Contract: NNX11CD19P
Award Amount: $99,508.00
 

Abstract:

Two critical requirements for an effective airport surface management system are:Â? The need to adapt plans both strategically and tactically because of time-varying uncertainty. Â? The need to support coordination and collaboration among a number of different individuals, including controllers in the ATC Tower (ATCT), traffic managers in the ATCT, ARTCCs, TRACONs and ATCSCC, dispatchers and air traffic control coordinators at Flight Operations Centers, and ramp controllers/supervisors at airports. NASA has developed algorithms to support such strategic and tactical adaptive planning for airport surface management. This proposal seeks to complement and support this line of research and development through the definition of roles, responsibilities and procedures for coordination and collaboration among these individuals as they adapt airport departure queues at spots and runways to deal with evolving conditions. It further seeks to design and complete formativeevaluations for interface designs that make use of NASA's adaptive planning algorithms.
