The Airspace Operations Laboratory (AOL) National Campaign (NC) team participates in flight test at Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC) 2021
(Apr 12, 2021)
From March 5 - 20, 2021, members of NASA's Airspace Operations Laboratory (AOL) representing the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) National Campaign (NC) subproject travelled to Armstrong Flight Research Center, to support flight tests aimed at assessing the procedures, infrastructure, airspace and system capabilities needed to conduct Advanced Air Mobility operations. Over the course of two and a half weeks, test pilots in a UAM surrogate vehicle, an OH-58C helicopter equipped with advanced instrumentation, flew a series of vertiport approach procedures and test scenarios designed to simulate realistic encounters and provide valuable flight characteristics data. A primary focus of the AOL was to confirm incoming ADS-B data from the helicopter and to push the data to the Airspace Test Infrastructure (ATI) system and database. In additional, AOL team members in NASA Armstrong's Mission Control Center (MCC) served as system operators who ran and monitored subsystems, including a client application for airspace management. This flight data along with feedback from pilots and system operators will provide researchers with lessons learned and serve as a baseline for the National Campaign Development Test with partner Joby Aviation planned for spring 2021 and all future flight testing.
