Upper Class E Traffic Management (ETM) and ATM-X  (2020)
Abstract Header
This is a slide set for presentation at the 4th Federal UAS Workshop jointly hosted by NASA and USGS. The contents of the slide cover the work currently being performed with respect to the Upper Class E Traffic Management (ETM) concept, which addresses the needs and gaps in the management of high altitude airspace operations. This concept leverages elements developed through the UAS Traffic Management project with respect to a cooperative, service-based approach that provides services and capabilities in areas (e.g., Upper E airspace) that currently receive no or limited service from Air Traffic Control. This concept is meant to provide a safe, fair, and scalable approach to management of Upper E operations that reduces the burden on ATC while providing the flexibility and access desired by current and new users of the airspace. This set of slides includes an overview and rationale of the ETM concept, a recap of the progress made, the road ahead, and the place of ETM within its parent project: Air Traffic Management-eXploration (ATM-X).
