FREMONT, CA: Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA), an aviation regulatory body has selected PASSUR aerospace Inc., an aviation business intelligence and software solution provider to create the first industry dashboard for reporting and analyzing air transportation system performance improvements which can be used to implement key NextGen capabilities. The dashboard capability will support the FAA-Industry Joint Analysis Team of the NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC).
PASSUR is being selected by RTCA for their unique database of flight, airspace, and airport performance data, largely powered by an independent surveillance network. With over 10 years of experience in dashboards and data visualization they also hold the expertise in airline and airport performance as well as in the NAS.
"The RTCA members of the NAC are encouraged about the substantial level of collaboration between the FAA and industry and look forward to working with the talented PASSUR team to take that collaboration to the next level," said Margaret Jenny, President of RTCA.
PASSUR's team comprises of renowned experts from FAA air traffic control, traffic management, and system operations, plus those from airline and airport traffic management, dispatch, operational performance, finance, and environmental management.
The objective of the performance tracking and analysis dashboard is for RTCA to be a site to establish a transparent mechanism to collect data, develop the reports in a dashboard, provide the ability to analyze the results, and to determine the success of the recent NAS improvements. The dashboard is also purposive in cases where the benefits are not as expected, to discover and alleviate the underlying issues.
"PASSUR appreciates the opportunity to work with the NAC and RTCA to contribute to the program's goal of making airspace performance, and ultimately the passenger travel experience, even better," said Jim Barry, President & CEO of PASSUR Aerospace.
