NASA’s Ames Research Center to Demo Air Traffic Mgmt Simulator

NASA‘s Ames Research Center in Califonia has created a full-scale simulator designed to mimic a variety of air traffic management scenarios as part of efforts to ensure air travel safety and efficiency this holiday season.

The space agency said Friday that the FutureFlight platform works to help NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration and private-sector researchers study how to manage U.S. airspace.

Air traffic controllers and pilots also use FutureFlight to test NASA-developed tools in a virtual environment that can simulate airports under varying environmental and traffic conditions.

NASA’s Ames Research Center will host a demonstration at Los Angeles and Charlotte airports on Dec. 14 to simulate environments at night, day, rain, snow, sleet, sun and other conditions.
