Abstract:

The purpose of the Next Generation NextGen Air Transportation System Avionics Roadmap ARM is to translate proposed NextGen improvements into aircraft-related capabilities and functions. This roadmap was developed by the Joint Planning and Development Office JPDO Aircraft Working Group. It is intended to provide other organizations involved in NextGen planning with an initial aircraft-centric perspective to assist them in understanding the integration necessary between principal components of National Airspace System NAS development -- air traffic technology and procedures, communication, surveillance, and flight planning systems. Stakeholders will benefit from reading this document because it will provide them with an initial view of the avionics-related capabilities required for the different types of operations envisioned for NextGen. The primary focus of this roadmap is improved air carrier and air transport operations through 2018 NextGen mid-term, with some work presented that broaches the far-term time frame 2019 and beyond. The scope of this work will be expanded in 2010. The overall vision of NextGen was created to address ways to safely expand the current National Airspace Infrastructure to support the projected growth of air travel in the United States while continuing to maintain high safety standards, provide greater efficiency and predictability of operations, and do so in an environmentally friendly manner. This roadmap supports these broad NextGen objectives by identifying the role of aircraft in enabling these preferred operations, principally through advanced avionics systems.
