Abstract : This is the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) first annual Aviation System Capital Investment Plan (CIP). The CIP describes the policies and strategies that the FAA will pursue in addressing key concerns of the National Airspace System (NAS). The Plan addresses safety, efficiency, traffic demands, aging equipment and facilities, and airspace use. It creates a foundation for evolution of the existing NAS through use of new technologies and development of new products obtained from continuing research. Long range advances in automation, communication, and satellite services that are being researched and developed will facilitate more automated control concepts, remove fixed-routing constraints, provide high levels of civil aviation system safety, and facilitate operations of future generations of aircraft. A sound planning process will provide the flexibility to capture the opportunities that new technologies provide and use these new technologies to achieve the FAA's mission.
