Federal Next Generation Flight Control System

Co-sponsored by AESS, GOLD, WIE

The current radar control based Air Traffic control system will be transformed over the period 2013-2020 to a modern Global Positioning satellite and performance-based system.
In preparation for these changes, the U.S. FAA and the EU EUROCONTROL agencies are in the process of modernizing through the ATS (NextGen) and a Single European Sky Air Traffic Management Research (SESAR) programs respectively.

On May 27, 2010, the FAA published new rules contained in 14 CFR §92.225 and §91.227 mandating airspace and avionics performance requirements after January 1, 2020. The avionics perform a function that is generally known as "ADS-B Out" which transmits precise location and other information about the aircraft to ground stations and other ADS-B equipped aircraft.

The ADS-B Program objective is to develop a multi-segment, lifecycle managed, performance based ADS-B strategy that aligns with the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) vision and generates value for the National Airspace System (NAS) through:
 Development of a Concept of Operations for the ADS-B portfolio of applications
 Development of a life cycle management approach for each application in the portfolio
 Establishment of a multimode infrastructure that supports a wide range of National Air Space (NAS) users and applications
 Continuously monitoring value and adjusting ADS-B investments in the NAS
Estimates that by 2018, NextGen will reduce total flight delays by about 21%, providing $22 billion in cumulative benefits to the traveling public, aircraft operators and the FAA.
