Abstract : Under Vision 100 Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act (P.L. 108-176), the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO) was charged with creating an integrated plan for the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). The focus of the legislative mandate was to leverage existing technologies and align the research and development (R&D) needed to transform our nation's air transportation system. In this context, the JPDO was established to manage the public and private collaborative work related to NextGen. The JPDO coordinates the NextGen efforts of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Departments of Transportation (DOT), Defense (DOD), Commerce (DOC), and Homeland Security (DHS), and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). The JPDO also has access to subject matter expertise from industry and academia through the NextGen Institute. The purpose of this document is to focus research and system implementation investment decisions by identifying the NextGen elements that can be achieved by 2025. These elements will need to be consistent with available resources, national priorities, and technology developments. This document also provides a baseline for the JPDO to engage its industry, labor, academia, and government partners in defining the goals and targets of performance metrics as a way of refining research priorities. In addition, it provides a basis to update JPDO planning tools, namely the NextGen Concept of Operations (ConOps), the Enterprise Architecture (EA), and the Integrated Work Plan (IWP). These planning tools are used to articulate the NextGen vision and coordinate its supporting efforts. Ultimately, this document was created to involve the NextGen community in maturing our collective understanding of 2025 and beyond, and is part of an ongoing vetting process to clarify the NextGen vision.
