"This report discusses progress made by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) toward human factors research needed to implement the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). Progress to date and remaining challenges are assessed in the context of recognized national goals. This assessment relies upon coordination of best practices that both agencies have enhanced since releasing the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO) FAA/NASA NextGen Human Factors Research Coordination Plan (HFRCP) in 2011. After an overview of progress made and challenges remaining in the mobility and aviation safety topic areas, the report provides short synopses of recent human factors research results and plans. Many of the research activities were undertaken as joint efforts between the two agencies and have resulted in technology transfer that advances the aviation community toward NextGen."
