Developing comprehensive analysis and modeling tools for airspace design optimization
Metron Aviation has played a major role in many large-scale, multi-airport and terminal area analyses for FAA and NASA airspace design projects, including the New York/New Jersey/Philadelphia, Cleveland/Detroit, Midwest, Northern Utah, Miami, Orlando, Chicago, Houston, Potomac Consolidated TRACON and St. George, Utah Airport. Metron Aviation is a recognized leader in this field, providing thorough research and development on various aspects of airspace operations within en route and terminal airspace, enabling the identification of inefficiencies in existing systems and developing solutions to improve system capacity, safety and reduce operational costs.
In addition to airspace design research, Metron Aviation has developed tools to support analyses, configuration and policy support. Current tools include:
- Airspace Design Tool (ADT) for multi-dimensional data integration, visualization and design simulations
- Airspace Sectorization Tool (SOT) for modeling and optimizing by algorithmically partitioning airspace into favorable sectors
Leveraging extensive experience from the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO), the FAA, NASA and national airspace re-design projects, Metron Aviation, develops the most comprehensive tools for airspace optimization, design and analysis.
