The FAA’s vision is to transform the aviation system to reflect the highest standards of safety and efficiency and be a model for the world.  With the expected growth in air traffic operations and our aging infrastructure, the FAA, in collaboration with its aviation partners, other Federal agencies/departments, foreign entities, and users of the NAS and the larger national air transportation system, continues the task of modernizing and transforming the NAS to meet the future demands of Air Traffic. The overarching objectives for the future remain the same maximizing airspace capacity with more sophisticated and seamlessly integrated information about the future position of aircraft at a given time — while maintaining the safest air travel possible.


The FAA’s System Engineering and Technical Innovative Solutions (SETIS) portfolio will provide a broad range of Research, Service Analysis, Strategic Planning, Systems Engineering (SE), technical, financial, and programmatic support services that will enable the FAA to accomplish its National Airspace System (NAS), Mission Support and other aviation-related objectives.


The FAA made great progress since the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) was just a concept. FAA has consistently leveraged their investments to deliver benefits to the NAS every day:


  • Air traffic controllers already have better information to track and separate aircraft safely and efficiently.
  • Pilots have more aeronautical, traffic, and weather information inside the cockpit.
  • Airlines fly faster, more direct routes to get passengers to their destinations more quickly while burning less fuel and producing fewer emissions (i.e., reduced environmental and energy impacts).


The FAA is on target to meet their original high-level objectives for NextGen by 2025. Beyond that date, the FAA will continue to accrue benefits through enterprise-level advanced applications, additional aircraft equipage, and full workforce adoption of a time-based management system. What continues to be reflected is the dynamic nature of the NAS.


The FAA must accommodate new entrants such as unmanned aircraft and commercial space vehicles, as well as address evolving challenges such as cybersecurity and NAS sustainment and resiliency.   NextGen Portfolios are laid out in the NextGen Implementation Plan and include:


  • improved surface operations;
  • improved approaches and low-visibility operations;
  • improved multiple runway operations;
  • performance-based navigation (PBN);
  • time based flow management (TBFM);
  • collaborative air traffic management;
  • separation management;
  • on-demand NAS information;
  • environment and energy;
  • system safety management; and
  • NAS infrastructure


Required Qualifications

The future of the NAS vision is an integrated evolutionary plan to take the FAA beyond ground-based radar technology and voice communications into the second century of aviation using modern technology, updated procedures and new equipment, satellite-based operations, updated communications and automation, and improved weather and traffic management capabilities.
