This is the Federal Aviation Administrations FAA third Aviation System Capital Investment Plan CIP. It describes the Facilities and Equipment F and E programs that the FAA will pursue in addressing key concerns of the national airspace system NAS, such as safety, efficiency, traffic demands, equipment and facilities, and airspace use. The CIP creates a plan for evolution of the existing NAS through use of these technologies and development of new products obtained from continuing research. The CIP is organized into six chapters. The Introduction provides an overview of the Plan, NAS goals and national priorities, the national air transportation system, a crosswalk to other plans, return on investment, recent changes, and document organization. A key goal of the Secretary of Transportations National Transportation Policy is the completion of the NAS Plan. To meet and document this goal, the Original NAS Plan chapter presents all remaining original projects. The Growth chapter describes those requirements that expand, relocate, or consolidate existing facilitiesequipment. The Infrastructure Replenishment chapter covers additional items identified since development of the original NAS Plan. This chapter presents projects that refurbish structures, replace obsolete equipment, or relocate facilities to maintain service, improve effectiveness, or reduce cost. The Supportability chapter describes projects that support logistics, provide for personnel training and manage the information and human resource aspects of NAS modernization. The last chapter, New Capabilities, addresses projects which, if implemented, are expected to add significant new capabilities to the NAS
