FAA NextGen Task K Demonstration of Flight Data Object Planning
Dr. Stansbury of the ECSSE Department is working in collaboration with the Florida NextGen Testbed to support FAA NextGen Task K. Task K involves the preparation for a Pacific regional demonstration of the Flight Data Object (FDO). The FDO is a data structure that will be utilized in NextGen to support the interchange of flight information through all phases of flight: terminal, ramp, departure, en-route, international en-route (if applicable), and arrival. Dr. Stansbury will collaborate with industry partners to generate a metrics and methodologies report necessary for identifying how the FDO’s performance will be analyzed.
