TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
We integrate existing technologies and build an infrastructure that is ready to leverage emerging technologies to realize an oceanic TBO capability that is seamless with the domestic air traffic operations and a solution that is within the near-term horizon. Technologies include surveillance (both traditional ADS-B and space-based ADS-B) as well as domestic weather radar and other weather source (e.g., GOES satellite information), and a probing capability to allow oceanic traffic to plan TBO operations into domestic airspace. We investigate how to to assist the airlines in submitting oceanic flight plan amendments in Trajectory Options Set (TOS) formats for offshore airspace compatible with the FAA�s Collaborative Trajectory Options Program (CTOP).

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
NASA's Airspace Operations and Safety Program (AOSP) benefits from our techniques that allow NASA to:

- Identify design requirements for seamless oceanic operations
- Extend TBO capabilities seamlessly from domestic to oceanic airspace
- Investigate new ways to manage air traffic by airline strategic planning instead of tactical air traffic control

The resulting set of integrated technologies will greatly assist NASA in the pursuit of Airspace Technology Demonstrations (ATDs), in particular, ATD-3 demonstrations showing TBO in seamless oceanic operations.

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
We establish a service oriented solution that provides the appropriate data gathering, data transfer, information processing (flight plan amendments), and CTOP TOS submissions to allow airlines to proactively plan transitions to and from domestic and oceanic airspace. The capability would likely be embedded into the workstations of international aircraft dispatchers at major airlines in the US.
