Luciad Display Product Used in FAA Terminal Flight Data Manager Reference Implementation

WASHINGTON DC, November 6, 2012 — (PRNewswire) —

An aviation-oriented display product from Luciad, the market leader in high performance visualization for Situational Awareness applications in Aviation, was  used for a key component of the US Federal Aviation Administration Terminal Flight Data Manager (FAA TFDM) reference implementation at the Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) International airport.

The FAA commissioned MIT Lincoln Laboratory (MIT LL) to develop a prototype reference implementation for TFDM, a new terminal automation platform.  MIT LL selected Luciad software for the development of the Tower Information Display System (TIDS) traffic situational awareness prototype display and completed the initial implementation in less than 4 months.  The prototype TIDS display was shadow demonstrated in field tests at the DFW airport, and Human-In-The-Loop (HITL) simulation tests at the FAA William J. Hughes Technical Center in 2010 & 2011.

"The speed of development of the Luciad software, combined with the support for open aeronautical exchange models and 4D data representation, enabled MIT LL to rapidly develop the reference implementation," said Lode Missiaen, CEO at Luciad Inc. "Luciad is pleased that its products are used by MIT LL to set the standard and demonstrate advanced Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) concepts in the TIDS application."

The Luciad based TIDS application provides an integrated tower-user display suite for surface traffic information, taxi routing and airport status. Luciad's technology allows the consolidation of disparate legacy tower systems into a single common operating picture and provides a highly scalable architecture.

The FAA solicitation release for the full operational TFDM capability is expected in Q4 2013 with award in Q3 2014.
