Skies Now Friendlier With NASA-Developed Air Traffic Management Tool

A new software tool developed by NASA, and being deployed by the FAA is positioned to help air traffic controllers manage the nation’s skies. The software, called Terminal Sequencing and Spacing (previously called TSS, now TSAS), will help air traffic controllers manage airspace within a doughnut-shaped region of sky that begins five miles from a major airport and extends outward about 35 miles.
