The FAA uses the NextGen Segment Implementation Plan (NSIP), which covers four 5-year segments from 2010 to 2030, as its blueprint for developing, integrating, and implementing NextGen capabilities. We organize operational improvements in 11 portfolios in the NSIP to group-related initiatives for assessing, developing, and implementing new capabilities.
The improvements are divided into capabilities deployed by increments as the technology or process becomes operational, which immediately benefits the aviation community in many cases. When the capabilities are in place, the operational improvement becomes a current operation.
Each portfolio has a detailed work plan. Years and timelines in the tables are only for planning and are based on the 2020 NSIP. We have not accounted for how the COVID-19 public health emergency has impacted the milestones.
