INTRODUCTIONThere are changes that taken place in relation with the technology and these are done sothat better quality services can be delivered to customers. There are many companies that arefocused on deliver people with similar type of products and services. The report will demonstrateimpact of NextGen Airport on reducing runway incursions. Strategies are applied by firms toattain competitive advantages. Ethical considerations when talking about airlines, there aredifferent types of problems that are faced and these are required to be eliminated so that standardservices can be delivered. The concept of technology, benefits and challenges will be discussed inthis report. Communication requirements, cost management and workforce training needs arealso discussed. There are certain set of expectations that individuals have and when in airlines,individuals expects to save their time and reach to their destinations on or before time. Mainfocus of the research is made on analysing the impact of NextGen Airports in reducing runwayincursions in the US. To conduct the research in effective manner, there are objectives set by theresearcher so that aim can be achieved and they are as follows:Aim and ObjectivesAim: To analyse the impact of NextGen Airport on reducing runway incursions in the US.Objectives:To understand the concept of NextGen technology.To determine the benefits and challenges faced by NextGen Airport for runwayincursions.To make comparison among NextGen Airport and non NextGen Airport for runwayincursions.To recommend strategies to increase monitoring and standardisation for NextGen Airportin the US.Research Question:What is the concept of NextGen technology?What are the benefits and challenges faced by NextGen Airport for runway incursions?What are the comparison among NextGen Airport and non NextGen Airport for runwayincursions?Hypothesis:H0:NextGen is having an effect on runway incursions in the US.1
H1: NextGen is not having any effect on runway incursions in the US.Literature and ReviewNext Generation Air Transportation System is determined to be an ongoing multibilliondollar modernization of NAS (National Airspace System). It was from the year 2007 when FAA(The Federal Aviation Administration) started working on NextGen and it will be completed bythe year 2025. Main goals for modernizations consists of efficiency, safety, predictability,resilience by using dozens of technologies, procedures and capabilities that help in transferringflight starting from departure to arrival (Sweet, 2016). It is identified that in many of theproblems that are identified, there are certain set of issues like delay of flights, increased waitingtimes, etc. that are faced by customers. According toBearman, 2017the type of system that isimplemented enables to determining the route or total time that will be taken by the flight toreach the airport. This is not just a single program but it consists of series of initiatives that aredesigned to make the airspace system more effective. For example, Data Communication isconsidered to be one of the programs of NextGen that provided the opportunity to transferinformation regarding the air traffic as it allows to send text based departure clearanceinstructions to flight crews. Further, it shares awareness for faster reactions to changes (Stoop,2015). Starting from a flight taking off to reaching its destination, there is a fixed route that has tobe followed. When in the same route, there are other flight also come, then it makes the flightdelayed. With this respect, with the help of NextGen, it enables to even change the route in shortnotice. There are about 57 of the airport that make use of Data Communication. All these are ableto reduce the problems that are generally faced and thus making the flights to reach out thedestinations on time. Further, it is also identified that about 41% of problems that were causeddue to delay in time will gets reduced. Maintaining NextGen program will cost FAA up to $37billion dollars through 2030. Further, it is also stated by FAA that the cost for saving form thesame set of programs are expected to be $106 billion.In implementing these type of system, there are both benefits and disadvantages. Howeverthe investment that is made by the firm is high and this shows that the support that airlines andcustomers will get will be high (Sillekens, 2015). With this respect, below given are the benefitsattained through NextGen :2
