Dynamic Airspace Concepts for Integration of UAS into the NAS, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Dynamic Airspace Concepts for Integration of UAS into the NAS Project Image
To address these critical needs associated with the integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the airspace, we propose to conduct research on the application of Dynamic Airspace Configuration (DAC) concepts and algorithms to the challenge of accommodation and integration of UAS into the NAS. The resulting algorithms and capabilities will provide real-time recommendations to Traffic Management Coordinators (TMCs) in the ATC system regarding the airspace boundaries that should be adopted, when the airspace boundaries should be changed and how long they should remain in place, and the necessary flight routes and other procedures that should be assigned to flights (both manned and unmanned) to ensure the safety and efficiency of all operations.
