Three major trends drove NASA Aeronautics’ Strategic Implementation plan. They are global demand for air travel will continue to grow and evolve, the need for aviation to be sustainable and more environmentally friendly, and technologies not traditionally associated with aviation are converging to create new possibilities in flight.

At NASA’s air traffic management laboratory near the Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport in Texas, researchers Al Capps (seated) and Paul Borchers demonstrate Airspace Technology Demonstration 2 tools that air traffic managers have been successfully testing since 2017 at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina to more efficiently direct departing traffic.
