Abstract : The Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO) is developing a Concept of Operations (ConOps) for the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). The final version of the ConOps will provide an overall, integrated view of NextGen operations in the 2025 timeframe, including key transformations from today's operations. The development of the ConOps is an iterative and evolutionary process that will encompass the input and feedback of the aviation community. This is Version 2.0 of the document, which includes accepted comments resulting from an internal review and an expanded breadth of the NextGen concepts. The purpose of this document is to provide all aviation stakeholders with an iterative version of the NextGen ConOps in order to gain further consensus from their comments for incremental improvement. Details of the JPDO comment and review process can be found at www.jpdo.gov. This document identifies key research and policy issues that need resolution to achieve national goals for air transportation. In many cases, this document presents aggressive concepts that have not been validated, but are envisioned to maximize benefits and flexibility for NextGen users. Many potential futures are possible, and much will depend on the insights gained by the evolution of the ConOps. The research and policy issues referenced throughout the text appear in detail in Appendices D and E, respectively. They are referenced within each chapter as [R-#] or [P-#]. Comments directed at refining these research and policy issues are requested. The following page outlines the expected development chronology of the ConOps.
