Integrated Demand Management

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Integrated Demand Management

Integrated Demand Management (IDM) develops requirements and procedures, validated through high-fidelity experiments, for an integration of near- to mid-term NextGen traffic management capabilities to improve NAS performance when the capacity of critical resources is inadequate to meet demand. Under IDM, strategic Traffic Flow Management Systems (TFMS) tools are used to pre-condition traffic into the more tactical Time-Based Flow Management (TBFM) system, enabling TBFM to better manage delivery to the capacity-constrained destination.  Coordinated traffic flow management across multiple airspace, airport, and weather constraint bottlenecks improves throughput and schedule predictability while reducing delays and enabling user-preferred trajectories.
