Passenger Productive On-Time Flight Tool
Customer: Business Travel Alternatives
The project developed a series of methodologies and algorithms to define an airport and itinerary delay model, and apply forecast and current weather conditions to the model in order to assess the potential delay for a known set of flight itineraries. The model will identify and suggest the most adequate solution for the user in order to achieve his/her flight destination with the minimum possible delay impact.
TAAM Analysis for American Airlines Operations:
Customer: American Airlines
The NEAR lab performed a comparative analysis of runway closures at DFW and JFK airports. NEAR utilized the Total Airspace and Airport Modeler (TAAM) fast-time simulation tool to provide fast-time Simulation analysis of American Airlines’ Hub airports.
TAAM Analysis for Delta Airlines Operations:
Customer: Delta Airlines
The NEAR lab performed a fast-time simulation analysis and utilized the Total Airspace and Airport Modeler (TAAM) simulation tool to conduct a research project for one of Delta Air Lines’ major airport hubs. For this project multiple simulation models were developed and were used to conduct a comparative analysis of a major capital improvement project.

For this project multiple simulation models were developed, and these were used to conduct a comparative analysis of a major capital improvement project.
Technical Assistance on Airport Improvements & Airspace Optimization in the Central Zone of Chile
Customer: Chilean Aviation Authority
The purpose of this project was to provide technical assistance on airport improvements and airspace optimization in the Central Zone of Chile. The tasks scheduled for this project were based on a rather mechanistic approach for quantifying the capability of airports. Stepwise tasks were required to gather airport movement and economic data and, from past values, forecast the expected airport traffic loadings and capabilities. If new and busy airports were built then the effect on the airspace should be defined, and proposals made for its optimization. The costs of this work would then need to be identified and the sources of funding and cost benefits detailed. The project would also need to identify the U.S. companies that could carry out the work of upgrading or building airports in the Central Zone.
Cognitive Analysis Applications Research Toolset (CAART)
Customer: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU)
The Cognitive Analysis Application Research Toolset (CAART) is an algorithm software developed by the Center for Applied ATM Research Laboratory at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. CAART is focused on determining workload assessment as well as workload predictions when performing different tasks or events.
Initially, a baseline of activities was built by analyzing control tasks as they were performed. These tasks could be observed in a variety of environments, whether they were being tested in a simulated environment or the actual work environment. These activities were then broken down into fundamental components called actions.
