Description
 
The Fed. Aviation Admin. (FAA), with other federal agencies and the aviation industry, is implementing NextGen, an advanced technology air-traffic management system that FAA anticipates will replace the current ground-radar-based system. At an expected cost of $18 billion through 2018, NextGen is expected to enhance safety, increase capacity, and reduce congestion in the national airspace system. To deliver some of these benefits in the midterm, FAA is implementing operational improvements using available technologies. This could build support for future industry investments, but a task force identified obstacles, such as FAAńˇ╗s lengthy approval processes. This report examined (1) key operational improvements FAA is pursuing through 2018; (2) the extent to which FAA is addressing known obstacles to the implementation of NextGen operational improvements; and (3) the extent to which FAA is measuring and demonstrating midterm benefits. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
