2 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation 31 Oct Traffic Flow Management (TFM): Why Impact Assessment Decision Support? Today, FAA facilities and airlines plan flow management actions with limited collaboration and little or no way to predict effects of actions such as: –Ground delay programs, ground stops –Severe weather reroutes –Miles-in-trail boundary crossing restrictions Few decision support tools available to evaluate impact! Result: localized, highly conservative solutions to problems affecting wide areas of the US airspace –Excessive constraints on airports and airspace –Unintended consequences of multiple restrictions

3 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation 31 Oct CAASD Research Integrated miles-in-trail (MIT) and rerouting evaluation capability –Analyzes one or several proposed MITs in conjunction with manual or National Playbook reroutes NAS-wide TFM impact assessment analysis –Couples demand estimation with large scale queuing model to obtain NAS throughput and delays Several types of applications: –Real-time decision-support –TFM post-event analysis –Analysis of changes in the NAS

11 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation 31 Oct Modeling MIT Restrictions for TFM DSS Model MIT impact for predicting: –Sector counts, upstream and downstream of the restrictions –Delays for spacing aircraft to the modeled restrictions Not necessary to model ATC actions precisely –Actions can include vectoring, holding, speed instructions Modeling approach –assume ground delay for flights departing near the restriction –active flights and inactives departing far from the restriction: slow flight progress starting near the restriction Preliminary research indicates this is a good model –vectoring activities rarely take aircraft into new sectors –spacing maneuvers start approximately two sectors upstream

16 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation 31 Oct MIT + Rerouting Evaluation Capability: Plans Continue to obtain field feedback –Initial responses were enthusiastic. TMCs see great potential for using this capability to reduce usage of MIT restrictions –What are the basic assumptions, metrics, procedures, etc. for collaborating on enroute flow restrictions such as MITs? CAASD has defined a strawman operational concept to facilitate discussion Provide to CAASD Spring 2002 staff at ATCSCC for use in replay mode (post-event analysis) Continue to study technical issues –Model validation –Modeling in-place restrictions (static and dynamic) –Implementation on the TFM-I (ETMS, CCSD, …) –Include additional traffic management initiatives? (GDPs, etc.)

24 © 2001 The MITRE Corporation 31 Oct NAS-Wide TFM Impact Assessment: Plans NAS-wide system simulation is envisioned as a widely- available capability with scenario sharing –Users of many types could develop scenarios, share them, modify them, discuss the results However, this is a very early concept! –operational applications and collaboration issues are not well understood –NAS-wide simulation models are not fully mature –not clear how it fits within TFM-I FY02: focus on improving simulation models
