FAA NextGen Test Bed Facility

The Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) is the future of U.S. aviation. NextGen will transform air transportation by transitioning from a ground-based radar system to a satellite-based navigation and surveillance system, improving communications between pilots and controllers, and developing more efficient navigation routes from start to finish.
