As a regulator and operator, the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) diverse mission activities collect and generate a tremendous amount of data. This data must be transformed to actionable information and leveraged to the fullest extent possible to enable the FAA’s mission, which is to provide the safest and most efficient aerospace system in the world. To drive efficiency, improve accountability, facilitate innovation, exploit the use of data, and embrace modern analytical techniques.
The FAA seeks submissions that will push the boundary and introduce novel approaches to aviation problems as the FAA moves further towards an info-centric National Airspace System (NAS). The advanced analytics and AI/ML proposals should address one of the following categories:
- Improve Aviation Safety
- Improve Operational Efficiency of the NAS
- Contribute to the Drive for Sustainable Aviation
- Assist with the Rapidly Evolving New and Novel Uses of the NAS
