The Next Generation Air Transportation System is a transformative change in the management and operation of how we fly. NextGen enhances safety, reduces delays, saves fuel and reduces aviation's adverse environmental impact. This comprehensive initiative, which is already providing benefits, integrates new and existing technologies, including satellite navigation and advanced digital communications. Airports and aircraft in the National Airspace System will be connected to NextGen's advanced infrastructure and will continually share real-time information to provide a better travel experience.
A summary of the FAA's NextGen implementation efforts during 2011 is available in the 2012 update to the NextGen Implementation Plan, which also provides an overview of our planned implementation activities over the next several years.
Activities documented in the Implementation Plan include work on NextGen's six core transformational programs: Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast, Data Communications, System Wide Information Management, NextGen Network Enabled Weather, NAS Voice System and Collaborative Air Traffic Management Technologies.
