Automated Flight Management Tech for Pilots Landing in Busy Airports

In February, NASA's aeronautics research team - along with partners from Boeing, Honeywell, and United Airlines - completed a three-week flight campaign to test a new technology called 'Flight Deck Interval Management.' The prototype hardware and software is designed to automatically provide pilots with more precise spacing information on approach into a busy airport so that more planes can safely land in a given time.
