NextGen 101 Seminar - Washington, D.C. 






NextGen 101 Seminar - Washington, D.C.

A two-day course - taught by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - designed to give an overview of the Next Generation Air Transportation System, the FAA initiative to modernize the air transportation system.


This two-day seminar put on by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, in conjunction with ERAU NextGen Programs, is designed to identify the key concepts, attributes, and challenges of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen).


NextGen is a series of Federal Aviation Administration programs that are being developed and implemented with the goal of modernizing the National Airspace System (NAS). Air traffic control systems are being overhauled from ground-based radar technology and point-to-point information sharing to a satellite-based system that uses a collaborative, real-time, and more accurate information-sharing system, System Wide Information Management (SWIM).


The testing, implementation, and demonstrations needed to accomplish this multi-decade program are being done at three NextGen test beds around the country, including one in Daytona Beach, FL. The FAA has contracted Embry-Riddle to run the Florida NextGen Test Bed, where ERAU staff and faculty, along with industry partners, work together to advance this FAA initiative.
