Digital Notices to Airmen

The Atlantic City International Airport, located at the Federal Aviation Adminstration's Technical Center, has become the first in the national airspace system to deliver "digital notices to airmen," or NOTAM's. NOTAMs provide computer-generated safety information to pilots and air traffic controllers about conditions at an airport like construction and hazards. FAA Administrator Randy Babbit calls digital information management "key to meeting the air traffic system's safety and efficiency goals," as well as modernizing the national airspace system. Digital NOTAMs have safety and efficiency benefits over traditional NOTAMs, including transmitting to all air traffic management systems simultaneously. And, airspace users get easier to read information. Other airports that will follow the lead of Atlantic City International include: Washington Dulles, Reagan National, B-W-I, Richmond, and Norfolk.

IBM develops new way to protect FAA from cyberattacks

A new partership between the FAA and IBM is designed to keep the Federal Aviation Administration safe from cyberattacks. The agency and the company are working together on a new approach that uses streaming analytics to watch for abnormal activity in the system. IBM U.S. Federal CTO Dave McQueeney tells Federal News Radio that the new approach is different from the current technique of taking a sample of data as it comes into the system -- possibly slowing response time. McQueeney says the new system will learn the patterns of normal behavior and then learn patterns of suspicious behavior.

Admin. Babbitt: Human error, not technology, behind November FAA outage

Early reports say human error caused the breakdown of an FAA communications system in November. That word comes from FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt in an exclusive interview with FederalNewsRadio. Babbitt says technicians performing a router upgrade turned off a warning system but didn't switch it on when they finished. That resulted in a system breakdown, snarling air traffic around the country.
