aeronautical and aerospace technology
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA),
in partnership with the Department of Transportation/Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA)
and state & local aviation and airport authorities, leads a
research & development program focused on maturing
technologies needed for a Small
Aircraft Transportation System (SATS).
The project's initial focus is to prove that four operating
capabilities will enable safe and affordable access to virtually
any runway in the nation in most weather conditions. These
operating capabilities rely on on-board computing, advanced
flight controls, Highway in the Sky displays, and automated air
traffic separation and sequencing technologies.
SATS Project is being conducted through public-private
partnership and is jointly managed by NASA, FAA and
National Consortium for Aviation Mobility).
NCAM SATS Labs Consortia include 130 members (44 participating).
Enterprises is proud to be actively involved is this exciting
research and development and look forward to continued
public/private alliances. The focus of our efforts involve
airport enterprise systems, airspace integration, and airport
economic development. Through client engagements and
applied research and development, we are committed to dramatic
improvements in the effectiveness and efficiency of air travel
throughout the world.
