Aviation Research and Development

Mosaic ATM makes real contributions to the safety, efficiency, and modernization of the National Airspace System (NAS) through our Air Traffic Management Research and Development (R&D) efforts. We are proud to partner with NASA and the FAA to identify how emerging technology, data, and operational modifications can improve existing systems and procedures and provide innovative ideas that lead to the development of new concepts.

Our commitment to Aviation R&D sets others up for success.

Mosaic ATM is dedicated to all aspects of R&D in Air Traffic Management, with capabilities spanning comprehensive assessment of current inefficiencies to full-scale development and deployment of new concepts. Our agile methods enable rapid and efficient progress and foster stakeholder engagement to meet evolving project needs.  

Mosaic ATM has diversified in recent years to work with additional government clients and various commercial entities. Many of our clients come to us to brainstorm new solutions to current and future business issues and implement change. Our expertise is in working closely with clients from aviation to oil & gas to understand the business situation and apply the right process, people, technology, and data to develop a scalable solution. The convergence of advanced analytics and R&D places Mosaic in a strong position to bring value now and into the future.

Mosaic ATM embraces a collaborative approach, with sponsors and as part of larger teams, to develop effective solutions. By bringing stakeholders together, Mosaic ATM builds a sense of shared ownership to increase commitment and buy-in of a solution.

Aviation Research and Development Capabilities

Advanced Surface Traffic Management – Mosaic ATM successfully completed several rounds of field trials of Collaborative Departure Queue Management (CDQM), part of the FAA’s Surface Trajectory-Based Operations (STBO) project, at Memphis International Airport (MEM).

Probabilistic Weather Integration – Mosaic ATM integrates probabilistic information with the weather and air traffic, plus factoring other relevant information, such as airspace structure, equipage, or pilot behavior, into an airspace capacity analysis used for ATM decision making. Read the White Paper.

Taxi Out/Taxi In Predictions – We help to accurately predict taxi-out/taxi in times to improve the operationality of the departure and arrival process at an airport, as well as reducing the long taxi-out/taxi in times, congestion, and excessive emission of greenhouse gases.

Dynamic Arrival/Departure Fixes – Mosaic enables easy and agile situational awareness of fleets and airports. Read the Case Study.

System-Oriented Runway Management – Mosaic assists airports’ runway configuration concerning their capacity and ability to effectively manage surface and airborne traffic. Read the Case Study.

Unmanned Aircraft Systems – Mosaic remotely pilots aircraft systems(RPAS) and drones. Read how we support UAS efforts here.

GPSM –¬†Due to the uncertainty in stratus clearing at SFO, GDPs are implemented that tend to be overly conservative, using a later GDP end time than is necessary. Mosaic ATM conducted the research that led to the development of the SFO GPSM under an NRA contract with NASA Ames. Read the Case Study.
