NASA is studying a variety of concepts for surface trajectory-based operations, which use moving maps, datacomm and ADS-B-In surveillance to take the variability out of taxiing between runways and terminals.
This article appears in the April 29 edition of Aviation Week & Space Technology. NASA and industry are developing a suite of surface trajectory-based operations applications to help pilots safely and efficiently taxi between gates and runways at increasingly congested airports. Key elements of these applications, which will be a feature in next-generation integrated cockpits, include airport moving maps with GPS-based own-ship position, synthetic and enhanced vision, data-link ...
