The Contractor shall provide support for EOR studies. The contractor will identify preliminary hazards, and then plan out and execute the necessary modeling, simulation and analysis work, which will determine if the associated procedures can be executed safely for simultaneous independent parallel approaches in the NAS.

This effort is in support of an initiative to increase the efficiency of arriving traffic into airports by reducing the current separation standards between aircraft based upon the tighter track containment regions associated with RNP capable aircraft, while ensuring there is no unacceptable increase in the risk associated with the modified operations. These research and development efforts are exploring the safety of modifying current minimum separation standards associated with the proposed EOR concept and may incorporate the use of other NextGen technologies and NAS infrastructure design changes.

This support shall include, but is not limited to, the following activities:

  • Produce detailed recommendations based upon these study findings on methods and procedures to apply for EOR Studies both in the near term and long term, providing project plans and tracking, and determining resource needs and allocations, and participate in Safety Risk Management Panel planning, deliberations, recommendations and preparation of Safety Risk Management Documents;
