"Welcome to this special edition of the Volpe Center Highlights focusing on our work for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, it is appropriate to recall that the FAA has been a key customer of the Center since our inception and continues to be a major sponsor today. Together we work to ensure that when you fly in the United States, you are traveling on the safest, most efficient form of transportation available." The focus of this edition of "Highlights" is supporting safe air transportation. Key programs discussed in this issue include Strategic Systems Planning; Communications, Navigation, and Surveillance (CNS); Aviation Safety; Human Factors; Physical and Information Security; Aircraft Noise Measurement, Modeling, and Analysis; and Policy, Planning, and Economic Analysis. Also in this issue is an article on "Technology Efforts to Reduce Runway Incursions Demonstrated at National Runway Safety Summit."
