NASA Langley Airspace and Traffic Operations Laboratory

The NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) Airspace and Traffic Operations Laboratory (ATOL) houses a suite of complex high-fidelity simulation systems dedicated to the research of advanced Air Traffic Management (ATM) concepts and technologies. A primary focus for the ATOL has been to support the NASA Airspace Systems Program effort in coordination with the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO) Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) and its partners.

In support of NASA’s ATOL, Metis provided:

  • Programming in support of air traffic control system modeling and simulation
  • Systems administration for over 600 systems comprising the ATOL
  • Preparation and configuration of ATOL for ATM research experiments
