OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.
Airspace simulations and modeling are important methods used for creating a future national airspace system. One of the existing tools that is used to develop and evaluate the impact and benefits of advanced air traffic management concepts is FACET or the "Future Air Traffic management Concepts Evaluations Tool." As future concepts require the modeling of significantly larger numbers of aircraft and increasingly complex operations, the computational time required to evaluate these concepts has increased. This work will produce software that will reduce the computational time required for FACET to evaluate future advanced air traffic management concepts. The deliverables shall include monthly techinical reports, an initial delivery of the CARPAT software 9 months after the award date, and a final delivery of the CARPAT software and the CARPAT API documentation at the end of the contract period.
