Under a new agreement, ITT Exelis will provide its real-time integrated NextGen flight-tracking data to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for academic research and analysis at its Daytona Beach, Fla. campus. ERAU said it could analyze the surveillance data to enhance electronic flight management systems, giving pilots better situational awareness and conflict detection/resolution. Other potential uses include improving the understanding of the effects of weather on the National Airspace System (NAS) and figuring out how to integrate unmanned aircraft and commercial spaceflight operations into the NAS.
