Integrated Testbed for Environmental Analysis of NextGen Concepts using ACES, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Integrated Testbed for Environmental Analysis of NextGen Concepts using ACES, Phase I
We propose the development of an analysis testbed to integrate simulation tools, such as ACES, with aviation environmental effects models, such as the Aviation Environmental Design Toolkit (AEDT), to provide a "360-degree" evaluation of new operational concepts. The testbed will be demonstrated by producing a "360-degree" evaluation of advanced NextGen concepts such as four-dimensional trajectories (4DTs), dependent arrivals to parallel or converging runways, continuous descent arrivals (CDAs), time-based merging and spacing, flow corridors, and many other NextGen operational improvements.
