Aviation business intelligence company PASSUR Aerospace, Inc. (OTC: PSSR) said that RTCA has selected PASSUR Aerospace to create the first industry dashboard for reporting on and analyzing air transportation system performance improvements attributable to the deployment of key NextGen capabilities.
The dashboard capability will support the FAA-Industry Joint Analysis Team of the NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC).
The NAC is a 32-member Federal advisory committee established in 2010 to provide advice on policy-level issues facing the aviation community in implementing NextGen (modernizing the aviation system), and includes a cross section of executives from the airlines, airports, general aviation, pilots, air traffic controllers, the Department of Defense, environmental interests, international interests and providers of air traffic control technology.
The NAC is working in close collaboration with the FAA to measure the benefits of the top four priority NextGen capabilities. The goal of the performance tracking and analysis dashboard is for RTCA to be a venue to establish a transparent mechanism to collect data, develop the reports in a dashboard, provide the ability to analyze the results, to determine the success of the recent NAS improvements and in cases where the benefits are not as expected, to discover and mitigate the underlying issues. The goal is for the FAA and industry to arrive at a common statement of performance.
Chartered by the FAA to operate Federal advisory committees, RTCA employs a consensus-driven process to generate minimum performance standards for CNS/ATM systems and equipment; to forge recommendations on key aviation policies, and identifying and developing mitigation on issues affecting air traffic management operations. RTCA performance standards form the basis for FAA regulatory requirements; its policy advice informs the FAA´s prioritization and investment decisions; and its tactical advice helps resolve real-world impediments to air transportation today.
