With the goal of providing safer, more flexible, more fuel-efficient routing, and increased capacity in enroute and terminal area operations, NASA and the FAA have undertaken a number of technology development efforts. These programs are exploiting advances in flight management systems, communication and automation in Air Traffic Control (ATC) aiding. The Advanced Air Transportation Technologies initiative (AATT) and the Terminal Area Productivity (TAP) program have research elements explicitly focused on the development of technologies for effective integration of flight deck automation, flight crew, ATC, and ATC-aiding systems. This integration should produce optimized routing, sequencing, and scheduling in the terminal area while relaxing constraints in enroute environments to accommodate user-preferred routing and schedules. These goals are to be met by the development of aiding and communications technologies and the redefinition of roles and procedures in the National Airspace System.
