The Airspace Operations Laboratory (AOL) National Campaign (NC) team participates in field test at Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC) 2020
(Oct 21, 2020)
From Sept 30 - Oct 1 2020, members of NASA's Airspace Operations Laboratory (AOL) representing the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) National Campaign (NC) subproject participated in a field test which was a collaboration between NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) and NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC). The purpose of the field test was to verify connectivity between NC airspace management tools and airspace surveillance hardware. ADS-B data from a live helicopter flight was broadcast to a uAvionix pingStation mounted on the side of a building at AFRC. AOL team members observed the flight from the Mission Control Center (MCC) at AFRC, collected the pingStation data, and forwarded it to visualization software located in the AOL. The results from the field test showed that ADS-B data could be captured from a live flight and populated on remote AOL displays. This event was the first in a series of planned field tests under the NC subproject. The NC aims to combine the efforts of NASA, commercial industry, and the FAA to increase the maturity level of Advanced Air Mobility, and to meet the rising demand for an AAM (urban and rural unmanned aircraft systems) ecosystem.
