XCELAR Helps Propel NextGen Forward Today
The FAA's Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) offers challenges and opportunities to both the government and NAS users.
Today, the aviation industry is charged with addressing the impact of air traffic growth by increasing NAS capacity and efficiency while improving safety, reducing environmental impacts and increasing user access to the NAS. The best way to get there is to leverage emerging technologies and modern aircraft navigation capabilities.
XCELAR helps our customers bridge the technology gap by putting insiders who use these systems, manage resources and make decisions about the future of global aviation on your side. NextGen planning and implementation is expedited with XCELAR experts on your side.
XCELAR principals were members of the Joint Program Development Office (JPDO) program responsible for defining NextGen for the US national air transportation system, in areas including capacity enhancement, security, and information management.
Participation in this blue-ribbon panel was by JPDO invitation and interview only. These efforts involved direct participation in the definition and design of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NGATS) for the US, now called NextGen.
SOIA — Development and implementation of the industry's first operational Simultaneous Offset Instrument Approach (SOIA) at San Francisco was led by principals of XCELAR. This 8-year program required extensive collaboration with operators, airport leadership, FAA (local, regional and national), NATCA, ALPA, local communities, aircraft manufacturers, and researchers to reach fruition.
ASDE-X and other multilateration systems: XCELAR principals have been key participants in the development, business case justification, deployment and operational implementation of multilateration systems for various missions for over 10 years. From FAA-sponsored ASDE-X radar systems to airport and airline-funded ramp surveillance, dating back to initial evaluation of TLS (Transponder Landing System) technology in the 1990s, XCELAR leaders have been deeply involved at each step.
