The Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO) Aircraft Working Group (WG) has developed the NextGen Avionics Roadmap Version 1.0 (v1.0).  The document is intended to communicate to the aviation community how the many proposed Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) improvements correlate to aircraft capabilities and functions, and how these capabilities/functions evolve over time.  This initial Roadmap is intended as a starting point and a first step to help focus the discussion and debate needed to grow consensus in the aviation community.  It is a way to facilitate subsequent NextGen planning as it relates to improved aircraft capabilities and corresponding avionics.  The Roadmap should not be viewed as a long-term NextGen planning source—that is the role of the JPDO’s Integrated Work Plan (IWP) and the Concept of Operations (ConOps), as well as other government partners' specific planning documents such as the FAA’s NextGen Implementation Plan. 

Material for this NextGen Avionics Roadmap v1.0 draws from NextGen planning sources (IWP, ConOps, the FAA’s NextGen Implementation Plan, and the FAA’s Performance-Based Navigation Roadmap) that capture how aircraft operations are expected to change through utilization of improved avionics.  The Roadmap brings these many proposed changes together - into an aircraft perspective - so the aviation community can better understand the key avionics system changes for NextGen.  The primary focus of this first version is improved air carrier and air transport operations through 2018 (NextGen mid-term), with some capabilities presented that broach the far-term time frame (2019 to 2025). 

The NextGen Avionics Roadmap v1.0 will evolve to address the needs of the broader user community (e.g., General Aviation, military, Unmanned Aerial Systems) and to fully characterize avionics system evolution through the far-term.  Future efforts include the integration and alignment of the Roadmap into the foundational JPDO and partner agency planning documents, to allow for greater clarity on aircraft- and avionics-specific changes.
