1st ANNUAL WORKSHOP
NAS-WIDE SIMULATION IN SUPPORT OF NEXTGEN: REQUIREMENTS AND CAPABILITIES
Center for Air Transportation Systems Research, George Mason University
December 10, 2008
NAS-wide Simulations will play a major role in the development of NextGen Concepts-of-Operations and the authorization of NextGen development and implementation funding.
Objectives of Workshop
The objective of this workshop is to identify potential "gaps" between the functional requirements for NAS-wide simulation of NextGen Con-ops and the capabilities in existing NAS-wide models.
Users of NAS-wide models and Developers of NAS-wide models.
Definition of NAS-wide Models
NAS-wide Simulations model the performance of the NAS at the granularity of individual flights over the course of one day. The NAS-wide simulations include the sequencing of individual flights through runways and airspace. These simulations may include gates and taxiways.
Inputs to the NAS-wide model include: (i) Flight Schedule for Day (itinerary, fleet assignment, seat size, engine-types), (ii) routes and Crz FLs (optional), (iii) Airport Arrival/Departure Capacity, Sector capacity, Flow Management (may include delays, sequencing, and re-routing for weather)
Outputs of the NAS-wide model include: Delays per Flight (Delays per flight segment), Actual Airport Arrival/Departure and Airspace Utilization, ATCo workload, complexity, Fuel Burn, Noise, Emissions.
