Trajectory Management - Surface Conformance Monitoring

The HD Surface Tactical Flow - Taxi Conformance project is focused on the development of Surface Trajectory-Based Operations (TBO) in support of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) initiative. This project intends to conduct research towards the development of initial requirements, concept of operations, and procedures for automated taxi delivery and conformance. Data communications are central to TBO, including the use of in-cockpit displays of assigned taxi routes and alerts to both controllers and pilots when an aircraft fails to comply with a taxi clearance. This environment is required to safely enable TBO on the airport surface when increased capacity will be necessary for operations by the year 2025.
