Ad Hoc Activity
The Design Phase is where the Study Team's conceptual designs are further assessed and detailed integrated procedure and airspace design work is completed. This work is conducted by a more locally-focused Design & Implementation Team. The Design & Implementation Team will have significant local participation including subject matter experts from local facilities and "Lead Operators" from industry, as well as PBN and environmental specialists. On-site simulations and other design analyses may be part of this phase. The Design & Implementation Team will be provided with a checklist of issues that must be considered, to include guidance on technical issues, regulatory and criteria issues, submission requirements, and implementation waterfall scheduling interactions.
