General Topics
The following topics are relevant to all of the discussions on January 23 and 24.
1. Current processes for providing real-time system-wide safety assurance for the national airspace system.
2. Current goals and plans by government, industry, and academia regarding the advancement of tools, technologies, and processes that could support the development of a real-time system-wide safety assurance for the national airspace system.
3. A vision for a real-time aviation safety assurance.
4. Expectations regarding advances of:
a. Broadly applicable technology that could be used to advance real-time system-wide safety assurance capabilities (e.g., sensing, computing, communications, and analytics as well as safety assurance technologies and capabilities for non-aviation applications.
b. Technologies and capabilities that are needed specifically for aviation safety assurance.
5. Technical, economic, regulatory, and policy barriers to developing key technologies and capabilities and achieving the vision for aviation safety assurance.
