2012 Aviation Noise & Environment Symposium

Event Date

Palm Springs Hilton Resort

NextGen technologies will introduce both challenges and opportunities to the way we manage airports, air traffic, airline operations and public expectations. They have the potential to introduce new environmental concerns as well enhance our capabilities to understand, explain and mitigate impacts. The introduction of intelligent sensing systems and avionics; new precision-guided departure, arrival and en route procedures; and data collection will create efficiencies and opportunities within the system for both large and small airports addressing environmental efforts. These changes need to be anticipated and planned for not only technically but also in communications efforts across all stakeholder groups to ensure a smooth transition.
