  • Advanced and Urban Air Mobility (AAM/UAM) Tech Talk with Biruk Abraham Tuesday, September 15, 2020 | 10:30:AM - 11:00:AM ET

    Add to Calendar 09/15/2020 10:30 AM 09/15/2020 11:00 AM America/New_York Advanced and Urban Air Mobility (AAM/UAM) Tech Talk with Biruk Abraham Learn more about Biruk and our other speakers HERE. Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) include manned and unmanned, highly autonomous, and pilot-supervised aircraft of varying size and mission operating safely and responsibly in the National Airspace System (NAS). These can include both electric and hybrid aircraft. While in its infancy today, advances in electric propulsion and control systems, computer systems, sensors, precision position and navigation information, and other technology are facilitating the development and operation of these new air vehicles. These new operations must meet the required standards to safely operate in the NAS in terms of the overall integrity of the vehicle and its adherence to the rules in a given airspace.  Beyond new air vehicles, advanced air mobility requires a vastly more capable flight environment. Gaps exist between today’s NAS and what the community envisions. Tying together air vehicles, airspace, navigation, surveillance, communications, information, and infrastructure is a challenge the FAA and industry must tackle together. So, where do we begin and how do we coordinate the process, given innumerable system interdependencies and needs of different stakeholders? The basis on this talk will center on how the FAA is collaborating with industry and NASA on many aspects of UAM. In particular how these air vehicles will likely operate with increasing degree of automation in a performance-based ATM environment. Whether through delivery of goods in urban environments, linking rural areas to population centers through passenger and cargo aviation, or an entirely new methods of passenger travel within a metropolis and its surrounding areas, these modes of transportation can make aviation a part of daily life.    https://videos.atca.org/advanced-and-urban-air-mobility-aam-uam-tech-talk-with-biruk-abraham

A SMART airport is a little artificial intelligence and a whole bunch of 21st Century innovation. It means that from passenger, terminal, and operator points of view, an airport will be linked, automated, and ultimately, completely streamlined. COVID-19 is undoubtedly speeding up some smart airport and aircraft technology to ease passenger and worker health concerns and make air travel as safe (and touchless) as possible. SMART airports are also a nexus for industry, academia, and governments, at the federal, state, and municipal level. Academia is driven by ideology and ideation; industry is driven by profit and efficiency; and government is driven by safety and data. Our panel of experts will discuss how technology will drive innovation in aviation and connect the world, one smart airport at a time. https://videos.atca.org/smart-intelligent-airports-and-the-technology-that-enables-them

    Add to Calendar 09/15/2020 03:00 PM 09/15/2020 04:30 PM America/New_York Working TDM in an IP World Learn more about our speakers HERE. The TDM technology that ran your organization’s network in the last century continues to operate many of today’s air traffic systems. With telecommunications carriers—as well as equipment suppliers—announcing they are discontinuing TDM services, the FAA is off to the races. The Agency has been dependent on TDM throughout approximately 90% of the FTI network, with over 23,000 services migrating to IP. The telecommunications industry has begun to alter market approaches with a shift to IP-based services based on demand, resulting in decreased repair capabilities for TDM-based services, while the FAA considers a number of options for transforming the FAA’s dependency on TDM-based services. Join the FAA, industry, and the telecom world in the race to modernization. https://videos.atca.org/working-tdm-in-an-ip-world

  • Evolving NAS Services for Emerging Aircraft Operations Wednesday, September 16, 2020 | 01:15:PM - 02:30:PM ET

    Add to Calendar 09/16/2020 01:15 PM 09/16/2020 02:30 PM America/New_York Evolving NAS Services for Emerging Aircraft Operations Learn more about our speakers HERE. We all know the challenges we face in the mission to enable advanced air mobility (AAM) and integrate other new entrants. These types of operations, including eVTOL operations, could be conducted today assuming the number of operations is manageable in magnitude. However, potential service providers are looking at operations in the hundreds (and even thousands) as they come on-line and become more viable. Urban air mobility (UAM) will require much more than airspace access and new methods of communications. In order to enable these “higher tempo” operations, the government and industry need to determine the requirements to address issues related to weather, flight planning, contingency planning, and separation and safety assurance, to mention a few. Additionally, these operations will be flying at lower altitudes than commercial operations and will coexist with general aviation operations, below 400 ft., and in densely populated urban environments. The FAA will not have the resources to control these vehicles operations, but someone (or something) will need to manage them. In all likelihood, these services will be provided through third-party services, opening up new business operations within the aviation industry. Essentially these operators will need to provide the types of services that are used in commercial operations to these new vehicle operations, in a safe and cost-conscientious way. Obviously, these operations will be “piloted” initially and may not become widely affordable until more automation or autonomous capabilities are realized and certified in the future. That said, new V&V methodologies to ensure that these future systems can actually operate with increasing levels of autonomy while ensuring aviation safety. This panel will explore the various issues and technical capabilities that will need to be addressed in order to enable AAM services as a routine form of commuting in the future. https://videos.atca.org/emerging-aircraft-operations

  • Safety in an Ever-Evolving Aerospace System Thursday, September 17, 2020 | 01:15:PM - 02:30:PM ET

    Add to Calendar 09/17/2020 01:15 PM 09/17/2020 02:30 PM America/New_York Safety in an Ever-Evolving Aerospace System Learn more about our speakers HERE. The number of operations in the NAS is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. In addition to the ever-increasing number of commercial operations, there will an increased emphasis on more efficient, greener vehicles, AAM, supersonic aircraft, and an increasing number of space launch vehicles that will need access to the NAS. The ATM system will need to harness new technology and employ new procedures to ensure safety. These operating procedures will rely on greater automation, which in turn will require new verification and validation (V&V) certification methodologies to address the ever-increasing use of complex systems resulting from increasing levels of automation and AI. In addition, vehicles that use alternative propulsive technologies (such as batteries) will also require thoughtful scrutiny since most of these operations and aircraft have not been certified for manned operations as of yet. This panel will explore the challenges to ensuring the safe operations of these emerging vehicles and operations and ideas on how to integrate them with the rest of the vehicles already operating within the NAS. https://videos.atca.org/safety-in-an-ever-evolving-aerospace-system
