GTC Receives NASA Award To Determine Aircraft Trajectory Anomalies Using Machine Learning on Disparate Datasets to Improve Aviation Safety

Sep. 2020, GTC begins its development on TRACAIR: TRAjectory Course Anomaly IdentifieR, a NASA funded project. TRACAIR is an AI-based tool that identifies aircraft trajectory anomalies. This tool identifies irregular flight behavior during real-world conditions to improve operations safety by fusing energy metrics and multiple data sources. Safety-critical risks identified in real-time include flight outside of approved airspace, unsafe proximity to people/property, loss of command, control, power, loss or degraded GPS, and engine failure. TRACAIR is applicable to commercial and general aviation, UAS traffic management (UTM), and urban air mobility (UAM).
