NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, Airspace Systems Program, has awarded approximately $607,000 to the Logistics Management Institute, McLean, Va. The award covers work described in the institute's NASA research announcement proposal entitled "Integrated Analysis of Airportal Capacity and Environmental Constraints."
The program also has awarded approximately $564,000 to Metron Aviation, Inc., Herndon, Va. The award covers work described in the company's NASA research announcement proposal entitled "Modeling Environmental Factors in Surface Traffic Optimization."
These awards will foster close collaboration with and facilitate the exchange of ideas and information among researchers within NASA, industry, academia and other government agencies to benefit the nation's aeronautics community.
The Airspace Systems Program conducts cutting-edge research to enable the Next Generation Air Transportation System. In partnership with the Joint Planning and Development Office, the program will help develop the concepts, capabilities and technologies that will lead to the significant enhancements in capacity, efficiency and flexibility needed to meet the nation's airspace and airportal requirements of the future.
