The FAA has taken a comprehensive, cross-agency portfolio approach to NextGen implementation that recognizes NextGen as an integrated effort, rather than a series of independent programs. NextGen is transforming the National Airspace System (NAS) through a number of operational improvements. We implement each improvement through a series of capabilities, or increments, that provide individual benefits. Combined, they transform the way we operate the NAS.
Work is progressing to deliver related capabilities in eight implementation portfolios and three portfolios with supporting activities, addressing safety, environmental and energy considerations and infrastructure.
The NPS portfolio pages include descriptions, benefits by key performance area, and implemented capabilities by location.
