Modernized System Provides Basis For NextGen Efforts
The new Traffic Flow Management System (TFMS) network at the
FAA's William J. Hughes Technical Center in Atlantic City, NJ
became operational June 18, according to the agency.
Originally located at the Volpe Center in Cambridge, MA, the
system tracks, anticipates and manages the flow of air traffic
throughout US airspace, integrating real-time weather and flight
data from multiple sources.
The new system provides the architecture needed to build the
agency's much-ballyhooed Next Generation Air Transportation System.
The modernized TFMS uses a state-of-the-art, open-architecture
platform that increases development bandwidth, facilitates
integration with other domains, and improves TFM performance and
A great deal of preparation has taken place to ensure that all
users of the national airspace system know what to expect with the
transition. That preparation will provide a smooth transition for
airlines, general aviation, military, and the international
community to connect to the new system.
The third and final phase of the TFMS modernization is expected
by August 2009, when the remaining legacy hardware and software
components are upgraded.
