Technology Pathways: Assessing the Integrated Plan for a Next Generation Air Transportation System C Integrated Plan Inventory The following table lists key elements that should appear in the Integrated Plan according to the Vision 100—Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act, Public Law 108-176, Section 709, Part b. The table also shows where these elements appear in the Integrated Plan. Key Elements That Should Appear in the Integrated Plan Where These Elements Appear in the Integrated Plan 1. National vision statement for an air transportation system capable of meeting potential air traffic demand in 2025 See Chapter 2, A National Vision for Air Transportation in2025. 2. Description of system demand and performance requirements (e.g., safety, security, mobility, efficiency, capacity, quality, affordability, noise, and emissions) See Chapter 3, System Goals and Performance Characteristics. System goals are as follows: • Retain U.S. leadership in global aviation • Expand capacity • Ensure safety • Protect the environment • Ensure our national defense • Secure the nation a. How system performance requirements were derived A justification for each system goal is described, but there is no explicit description of how they were derived. b. National goals, objectives, and policies the national vision would support These are generally included in the justification for each system goal described in Chapter 3. See also Chapter 1 discussion of three factors that “threaten the ability of aviation to grow and continue to serve the nation”: Security Gridlock Global leadership c. Underlying socioeconomic determinants Socioeconomic determinants that underlie the system goals are not mentioned in the plan. d. Associated models and analyses Models and analyses associated with the system goals are not described in the plan.

Operational concepts with the potential to meet system performance requirements for all system users See Chapter 4, Operational Concepts. a. Scale to accommodate and encourage substantial growth Not explicitly addressed in Chapter 4, but see Section 7.1, Develop Airport Infrastructure to Meet Future Demand Section 7.3, Establish an Agile Air Traffic System b. Build on current initiatives Not explicitly addressed in Chapter 4, but see Chapter 6, Approach to Transformation. c. Integrate data streams from multiple agencies and sources (e.g., ground-based and space-based communications, navigation, and surveillance systems) to improve situational awareness and facilitate seamless global operations Not explicitly addressed in Chapter 4, but see Section 7.4, Establish User-Specific Situational Awareness Section 7.8, Harmonize Equipage and Operations Globally d. Use the design of airport approach and departure flight paths to reduce public exposure to noise and emissions Not addressed in the plan. 4. A multiagency research and development roadmap See Chapter 5, The Next Generation Air Transportation System Roadmap for Success, and Chapter 7, Transformation Strategies. a. Timelines through 2025 to develop and deploy the system See Chapter 5, pages 18 and 19, for a very high-level timeline. b. Most significant technical obstacles and the research and development activities necessary to overcome them, including the role of each federal agency, corporations, and universities for each activity Information at this level of detail is not included in the Integrated Plan. c. Technical milestones that will be used to evaluate activities Information at this level of detail is not included in the Integrated Plan.
