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

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Integrated Testbed for Environmental Analysis of NextGen Concepts using ACES, Phase II
The key innovation in this effort is the development of an industrial-grade 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 such a "360-degree" evaluation of advanced NextGen concepts such as time-based merging and spacing at ATL airport, high-density metroplex concepts, and the efficiency of new route structures with environmentally responsible aircraft using RNAV routing. The industrial-grade software will be implemented in Java and can potentially reduce the analysis time for combined performance/environmental analyses by several months over the current state of the art.
