• Sequencing and spacing tools for terminal controllers will enable considerable improvement in performance based navigation conformance in congested airspace – life cycle benefit exceeds $600M to airlines per FAA analysis.
• Demonstration of Flight Deck Interval Management (FIM) informs RTCA standards committees on equipage and performance or further flight requirements.
• FIM performance data to FAA Surveillance and Broadcast Services Office will aide their planning for further flight tests.
