The core application of the work in this project will be to further NASA's goals to enable the testing of advanced concepts within SMART NAS prior to deployment. If successful, it is envisioned that TOMO will provide SMART NAS users metrics that would allow cleaner comparisons across scenarios, speeding up the process of evaluating different concepts. In the short term, TOMO could be deployed within a system such as FACET to provide optimization-based metrics for existing scenario simulations.
TOMO could directly be applicable within EUROCONTROL's simulation environment ESCAPE or to assist with near-term metrics calculation within the FAA. Given that the FAA has identified metrics and analysis as a key NextGen enabler, TOMO could find application within simulation environments used within FAA's NEIC (NextGen Integration and Evaluation Capability).
