2. NAV Lean & Aeronautical Data Management (ADM)


2011-12 ADM Core Team Meetings
Feb 2012 Executive Action Group approval
January 2015 Airports GIS becomes Authoritative Source
for all Survey data including FAA Tech Ops Surveys
September 30, 2015 Airports GIS becomes the Airports
Data Authoritative source and Airports the Custodian

Displaying Safety Data in AGIS


Ongoing initiative to identify and correct problematic
geometry leading to Runway Incursions
Developed a GIS database inventory
We have now geo-referenced all Runway Incursion and
Hot Spot locations for all towered airports (2007 2013)
This database will be integrated within AGIS this FY to
view, sort, or query on each airport map

3. System Improvements
New Servers required to Support Tool Development
Dec 2013 Server deficiencies identified
6 year old hardware, partitioned drive shared with OE/AAA
Load testing in May allowed 100 simultaneous users of 20:1

FAA Shared services will support new servers


Hardware delivered in May
Operational Date expected in August

Airspace Evaluation Tool - 20:1 SAV (Phase I)

Alaska Test started at end of January 2014


Revised several tables as result of test
Completed 4 Webinars
A beta tool including depiction of 20:1 TERPS obstacles
without pushing data to FPT has been implemented
for Alaska and Eastern Service Area
Test of 47 airports planned within ESA using full
automation with FPT
Starting in FY15, we will start developing additional
surfaces in tool besides 20:1 and GQS

e-ALP Tool
Quarterly Improvements
Data Collection and data viewer is working well
Printing capability has been improved
2nd Qtr - Cover sheet, vicinity maps, line weights, runway table
3rd Qtr Versioning complete, Set new requirements to align
with new ALP SOP
4th Qtr Update PDF Generation, Red Line, searchable
comments, MOS table.

APP added a contractor to assist with printing a user


defined ALP product (rotation, colors, extra sheets,
etc)

Cloud Server Implementation


Imagery for 400 airports is available to all FAA LOB
Improving Quality of Orthoimagery
Need to upload both imagery and tiles to get desired resolution

Expect to have 1,000 airports available by end of FY


Project with FAA-AIM to add 2010 WAAS orthorectified
imagery
Inventory of all WAAS imagery, pilot to extract three airports 18B
data from WAAS imagery

Upload of legacy ALP and Signage and Marking Plans
