Flight inspections

Flight inspection ensures the integrity of instrument approaches and airway procedures that constitute our National Airspace System infrastructure. This is accomplished through airborne inspection of all space and ground based instrument flight procedures and instrumentation. Up to today this is a tedious expensive and sometimes even very dangerous process.

AANA is part of the Sensor Fusion Team, a combined NASA/FAA effort to investigate how new procedures, techniques and displays can make flight inspections easier, safer and cheaper. Using the our X-38 experience, AANA:

  • supported the design and implementation of a desktop-based flight inspection operator station
  • defined the operational scenario's, briefings and evaluations
  • implemented a prototype of the HUD Displays and Augmented Terrain Models to support the flight inspection missions
