Over the past five years, NASA’s Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 (ATD-2) project, which is ending Thursday September 30, has demonstrated many benefits using the new Integrated Arrival, Departure and Surface (IADS) technology at both Charlotte Douglas International Airport and Dallas Fort Worth International airport. The agency transferred the technology and knowledge from these demonstrations to the FAA for national implementation.
The ATD-2 IADS system improves the predictability and efficiency of surface operations at the country’s busiest airports through time-based departure measurement, departure planning tools in busy air traffic flows and better sharing of information on flight operations between the various stakeholders at the airport.
