  7. AAM Natona Campaign Series Overview
    1.1. Overview
    NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) plans to host an Advanced Air Mobility National Campaign series with a goal to promote public confidence and accelerate the realization of emerging aviation markets for passenger and cargo transportation in urban, suburban, rural and regional environments. As part of ARMD’s mission, results and lessons learned from cutting-edge flight testing and demonstrations will be publicly disseminated to the maximum extent possible to provide benefit for industry, government and the general public. For the purpose of the National Campaign, NASA views the term Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) to cover transformative and disruptive aerial transportation systems and networks for mobilizing people and things in ways that have not been available to the public before, and reaching to places which are not practical today due to safety, cost, noise, airspace, infrastructure and other limitations. AAM can be characterized by: (1) novel vehicle configurations that are enabled by electrification of the propulsion system inclusive of all-electric and hybrid-electric propulsion architectures; (2) levels of vehicle autonomous operations and reduced pilot/operator workload while achieving improved trajectory compliance; and (3) operations at densities that cannot be managed by current air traffic management system architectures. AAM missions include but are not limited to local missions in rural areas and those within complex and challenging urban environments, often referred to as Urban Air Mobility (UAM), as well as intraregional operations between cities and between metropolitan and rural areas.
    In order to characterize levels and capabilities of UAM operations around urban areas, NASA created the UAM Maturity Level (UML)[1] scale that is intended to characterize significant phases expected during the evolution of a UAM transportation system from the current state of the art of prototype vehicles at UML-0, to a highly developed, future state where UAM is a ubiquitous capability, similar to automobiles today, at UML-6. The UML scale was primarily developed to represent the maturity of UAM development and operation around urban areas but is also applicable to AAM development and operation for use cases that extended beyond urban environments.
    ARMDs long-term strategy for AAM is focused primarily on helping to enable future systems and operations at a UML-4 level that is characterized by medium total traffic levels, medium complexity of operations, and a reliance on collaborative and responsible automation. UML-4 is representative of 10s to 100s of vehicles performing AAM commercial operations in urban areas, and NASA activities are phased to help the AAM ecosystem accelerate progress with the goal of enabling UML-4 level operations in the 2030 timeframe.
    The Advanced Air Mobility National Campaign (NC) was previously known as the “Urban Air Mobility Grand Challenge (UAM GC)”, and NC includes an expansion in scope from the original UAM GC to be inclusive of all AAM systems and markets, whereas the original UAM GC scope focused on UAM only. The NC is inclusive of novel short take-off and landing (STOL) and vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicles to provide an order of magnitude increase in aviation access points to the general public with intended use cases of passenger carrying, as well as cargo and surveillance applications. Target flight environments include urban, as well as suburban, rural, regional, and intraregional, with example vehicle flight ranges up to 500 miles.
    The AAM National Campaign series is designed to promote public confidence in AAM safety; facilitate community-wide learning while capturing the public’s imagination; and give prospective vehicle manufacturers and operators, and prospective airspace service providers, insights into the regulatory and operational environment for their systems/services. The NC series is also intended to support AAM requirements and system development through integrated vehicle and airspace demonstrations in operational scenarios that are critical to safe and scalable AAM commercialization. The NC series will facilitate bringing together vehicle, airspace service providers and infrastructure providers to help understand the current AAM system maturity levels with respect to vehicle performance, safety assurance, airspace interoperability, etc., and to develop and demonstrate integrated solutions for civil use. NC is being designed as a proving ground across a variety of operational scenarios, unique airspace integration challenges, and range locations.
    In general, the NC series is intended to accelerate the realization of a safe and scalable AAM transportation capability. The long-term goal of the NC series is to assure AAM safety and accelerate scalability through integrated demonstrations of candidate operational concepts and scenarios. Given the breadth and varying maturities of potential vehicle configurations and airspace services, NASA is interested in seeing each NC event structured in such a way as to allow demonstration and collection of relevant, standardized data from evolving AAM aircraft and airspace systems with operational capabilities spanning aspects of UML-1 through UML-4.
    NASA plans to host the first AAM National Campaign (NC-1) in Calendar Year (CY) 2022 that will enable participants to demonstrate integrated operations in relevant scenarios that include: two-way network flight plan communications; beyond visual line of sight operations; real and simulated vehicle and operations contingencies; dynamic traffic avoidance and trajectory management; and approach and landing in the presence of real structures (e.g., buildings in an urban environment) and associated mechanical turbulence. NC-1 is focused on vehicles that have a minimum 275-pound[1] payload capacity (which is a round number approximately equivalent to the 95th percentile adult male with a carry-on bag) consistent with passenger-carrying or large-cargo operations, and could have a pilot on-board, be remotely piloted, or flown autonomously. NC-1 has been developed to focus on the demonstration of an integrated set of scenarios to assess vehicle and airspace interoperability, trajectory planning and compliance, contingencies associated with communication and navigation, contingencies in the en route and during terminal base operations, novel approach and departure flight procedures, as well as strategic and tactical conflict avoidance. As part of NC-1 and the NC series, a key outcome is to collect and share data, results and lessons learned broadly with AAM industry, community and stakeholders, and U.S. Government agencies, including NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Data, results and lessons learned are intended to be generated and collected from flight demonstrations and simulations to inform certification paths as well as drive performance-based initiatives across vehicle, airspace and operations integration standards.
    The NC-1 activity will leverage the NASA ecosystem developed in NC-Developmental Test (NC-DT) that focused on building out simulation and flight capabilities targeted towards AAM applications with select AAM vehicle and airspace partners. and extending NC-DT further with industry partners in both simulation and flight. The NC-1 activities are comprised of two key elements: simulation with airspace partners that uses and extends capabilities built into NC-DT by developing new interfaces to Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP) and flight demonstrations with vehicle, airspace, and infrastructure partners to demonstrate capabilities across operational scenarios in a UML-1 to UML-2 environment.
    NASA is aligning NC-1 with industry-proposed initial commercial operations based on concepts of operations in low density and low complexity environments. NASA is also structuring NC-1 to include key elements necessary to progress beyond initial commercial operations to achieve scalability of operations, such as, Automation Enabled Pilots (AEP) to enable safe handling of AAM aircraft and airspace operations using lessons learned from the Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) construct and expand on UTM to manage the high-density air traffic.
    NASA, with the assistance of the FAA, has designed a series of AAM National Campaign Scenarios that will be essential in executing the NC series. A baseline set of operational scenarios are described in the attached “AAM National Campaign Scenarios – Overview” or “Scenarios” document, but the NC is flexible to a wide variety of implementation approaches across all AAM concepts of operations, including: passenger carrying, cargo carrying, piloted, remotely piloted, automated, rural, urban, intraregional, unique airspace architecture, etc. An additional document (“AAM National Campaign Scenarios – Details of Scenarios 1 – 4”) provides details of scenarios 1 through 4. The scenarios are designed to progress in difficulty and complexity through the NC series, likely requiring higher levels of vehicle and airspace system automation and/or autonomy to complete increasingly more complex integrated scenarios. It is expected that these scenarios will evolve and be refined over time, and additional scenarios added as the NC series progresses. All of the participants in the NC series will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the current set of test scenarios and suggest new scenarios to help NASA and the FAA arrive at a common set that can be used for all participants in each subsequent event in the NC series.
    1.2. Announcement Parnership Categories
    This Announcement is intended to invite proposals for:
    AAM vehicle partners to fly in NC-1 in 2022.
    AAM operations infrastructure partners to participate in NC-1 flight activities in 2022.
    AAM airspace partners to participate in NC-1 airspace simulation activities in 2021.
    NASA plans to use the National Aeronautics Space Act, 51 U.S.C. § 20113(e), other transactions authority to enter into non-reimbursable Space Act Agreements (SAAs) with partners under the categories described in this Announcement. Non-reimbursable SAAs are formal partnership agreements involving NASA and a partner in a mutually beneficial activity, where each party bears the cost of its participation, and there is no exchange of funds between the parties. For this particular Announcement, NASA will be leveraging an Umbrella and Annex SAA mechanism, where each partner will sign a separate Umbrella Agreement, and one or more Annexes that cover the mutually beneficial activities. The Umbrella Agreement is a single governing instrument that contains all common terms and conditions and establishes an over-arching legal framework of the agreement for each partner and would remain in-place for a period of 5-years. Underneath the Umbrella Agreement with NASA, the partner will sign one or more Annexes that cover a single activity or a progression of related or phased activities, where the Annexes adopt the terms of the Umbrella Agreement and add specific details of each activity. The advantage of utilizing an Umbrella and Annex SAA mechanism is that the overarching Umbrella Agreement remains in-place while follow-on Annexes can be drafted and signed quickly, reducing the administrative burden for both NASA and the partner.
    Each participant in the NC series, including vehicle, airspace and infrastructure partners, will sign an Umbrella SAA with NASA. For this Announcement, there are two model Umbrella SAAs, with one drafted to cover participation by U.S. partners, and the other drafted to cover participation by international partners. Forms of the two model Umbrella SAAs that cover participation by U.S. and international partners are attached to this Announcement.
    Additionally, there are three model Annexes that are drafted to cover participation in NC-1 activities by vehicle, airspace and infrastructure providers. In addition to signing one of the two Umbrella Agreements, each partner will sign one or more Annexes that cover their participation in NC-1 activities. The three model Annexes are attached to this Announcement, and are described as follows:
    Flight Annex: The “National Campaign – 1 Flight Annex”, or “Flight Annex”, covers participation by U.S. and international AAM vehicle developers that will be ready to fly in NC-1 activities in 2022 to demonstrate key integrated operational AAM scenarios. Vehicle developers are encouraged to partner with an airspace service provider in order to best demonstrate integrated AAM scenarios. NC-1 flights shall be conducted at a test range arranged by the participant, and the test range must be located in the U.S., must meet a set of instrumentation, infrastructure and safety requirements designated by NASA, and must allow for NASA to be present at and able to adequately monitor the NC-1 activities. International vehicle partner test flights as part of NC-1 will not be conducted at NASA facilities. NASA is planning on collecting vehicle noise data as part of the NC series, including NC-1, and NASA anticipates deploying equipment and personnel to each of the NC-1 test locations to collect vehicle noise data through a series of acoustic measurements spanning representative flight conditions specific to the partner vehicle. Participant’s arrangement with its test range must accommodate such NASA activities during the NC-1 flight activities.
    If a vehicle partner has additional partners (including an airspace services partner) only the prime organization would need to submit a proposal and sign an Umbrella SAA and Flight Annex. If the proposal includes an airspace partner, they may also separately submit a proposal to the Airspace Annex to work with NASA on NC-1 airspace simulation activities, but that is not required for the airspace services provider to provide airspace services to the vehicle partner for NC-1 flight activities. Vehicle sub-systems providers, such as avionics and vehicle sub-component manufacturers, are welcome to work with vehicle providers in order to be involved in NC-1 flight activities.
    The specific requirements and evaluation criteria that NASA will use to select partners for the NC-1 Flight Annex are provided in Section 3 of the attached “ACO-2 Announcement – NC-1 – 2021-03-05.pdf” document. NASA intends to select those proposals which best meet the goals of the NC-1 flight activities within the limits of NASA resources to support the partner flights.
    Infrastructure Annex: The “National Campaign – 1 Infrastructure Annex”, or “Infrastructure Annex”, covers participation by U.S. AAM operations infrastructure providers that intend to provide infrastructure and services to support commercial providers of AAM, and for test and evaluation of the proposed infrastructure as part of NC-1 flight activities. The scope of infrastructure that NASA will consider for this Announcement includes, but is not limited to, technologies both hardware and/or software, such as sensors and algorithms that bridge communication and situational awareness between vehicles, airspace provides, operators, and aerodromes to provide communication and data sharing in a secure fashion to enable high density operations. Other operations infrastructure technologies and systems may be proposed for test and evaluation as part of NC-1 activities.
    NASA anticipates that there will be two opportunities for infrastructure partners to participate in NC-1 flight activities. The first is through a NASA provided flight test opportunity where the partner would be able to demonstrate and test their infrastructure systems and services as part of a NASA flight test. The second is through a flight test of an AAM vehicle that is arranged by the infrastructure partner. The partner-arranged flight activity must be conducted at a test range in the U.S. and allow for NASA to be present at and able to adequately monitor the test and evaluation of the infrastructure systems and services. Infrastructure providers may choose to propose to participate in either one or both of these NC-1 flight opportunities.
    The specific requirements and evaluation criteria that NASA will use to select U.S. partners for the NC-1 Infrastructure Annex are provided in Section 4 of the attached “ACO-2 Announcement – NC-1 – 2021-03-05.pdf” document. NASA intends to select those proposals which best meet the goals of the NC-1 infrastructure activities within the limits of NASA resources to support infrastructure activities.
    Airspace Annex: The “National Campaign – 1 Airspace Annex”, or “Airspace Annex”, covers participation by U.S. airspace entities that propose to work with NASA as part of an AAM airspace simulation activity for NC-1 in 2021. This simulation activity is called the AAM X4 simulation or X4 simulation and will test the participant’s AAM services against the set of NC test scenarios in a relevant simulation environment. The simulation environment will explore new methods for data exchanges between the regulatory authority and the service providers. Airspace entities are also encouraged to partner with vehicle providers that are proposing to fly as part of NC-1 as the AAM X4 simulation would provide valuable experience in order to support NC-1 flight activities with an AAM vehicle partner.
    In addition to the X4 simulation, NASA anticipates providing an opportunity for airspace partners to test and demonstrate their AAM airspace services and capabilities in a live flight test campaign of AAM representative operations as part of the NC-1 airspace activities. This NASA provided flight test will allow airspace partners to apply the experience and lessons learned from the X4 simulation and verify system operations and data exchanges in live flight tests.
    The specific requirements and evaluation criteria that NASA will use to select U.S. partners for the NC-1 Airspace Annex are provided in Section 5 of the attached “ACO-2 Announcement – NC-1 – 2021-03-05.pdf” document. NASA anticipates selecting a limited pool of airspace participants for NC-1, choosing those that best meet the goals of NC-1 in demonstrating critical integrated scenarios as part of the X4 simulation and preparing for NC-1 flight activities.
    1.3. NC Goals and Mutual Benefits
    NASA intends the NC series to be an effort that will “raise the water level” for the entire AAM ecosystem through a holistic, operational testing approach. The goal of the NC is to accelerate development of safe, high-volume AAM flight operations in the existing and anticipated future national airspace system. Conducting the NC will help the government and industry identify significant AAM barriers, validate the state of the art, and inform the design and integration of vehicles, airspace, and ground infrastructure systems.
    Broad participation from many organizations in the NC will enable the FAA, NASA, and the broader AAM community to develop and validate a common concept of operations (CONOPS) for AAM. This CONOPS must include flight procedures, future airspace operations management architectures, communication, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) architectures, takeoff/landing infrastructure requirements, and other items. The sooner a common CONOPS can be developed, the sooner requirements can be set for industry to begin maturing technologies and fielding systems that have a high degree of certainty to provide a return on the organizations’ investment and enable safe, high-volume AAM operations. The NC series is designed to allow for integrated testing of the different areas required for a common CONOPS so that the AAM community can move forward towards commercial operations.
    Each NC in the series will build on previous NC results and allow industry to leverage new technologies and/or methodologies to address gaps that are uncovered along the way. If successful, NASA and the FAA will use the data, results and lessons learned to support developing AAM regulatory and implementation approaches and strategies. In addition to collection of data, results and lessons learned that will help in the certification of novel aircraft, the NC will be collecting performance data, trajectory compliance data, vehicle robustness to contingencies, pilot workload, emergency procedures, simplified pilot functions and reduced training and certification requirements, airspace communications, ground operations, infrastructure needs, and so forth. These data will help to inform new infrastructure standards, pilot/operator certification standards (e.g., with aircraft that have a high level of automation), and other standards.
    In order for the NC series to be a success, vehicle, airspace, infrastructure and community participants need to be committed to provide data to support the government’s longer-term AAM goals of developing requirements and standards to safely and efficiently open large-scale AAM markets. Each party participating in NC will bear the costs of their participation with no exchange of funds. Participation in the NC will give participants access to NASA’s knowledge, expertise and lessons learned with extensive experience designing, testing, flying, and evaluating one-of-a-kind aircraft, operations infrastructure, and airspace management systems.
    1.4. FAA Coordination
    The close collaboration between NASA and the FAA is critical to the success of NASA’s AAM National Campaign. NASA intends to collect data and lessons learned to help inform FAA policy decisions on safety, certification, operations, and airspace integration aspects of AAM. Through a NASA/FAA Inter-Agency Agreement (IAA), the FAA will be postured to capture relevant information that will inform future AAM regulatory decisions, and the AAM National Campaign has been formulated to ensure that data collected is valid, relevant, and useful to inform these FAA AAM regulatory implementation activities.
    NASA and the FAA intend to collaborate throughout all stages of the AAM National Campaign, from planning and scenario validation to AAM National Campaign execution. FAA stakeholders across multiple lines of business under the FAA Organizations of Air Traffic Organization (ATO), Airports (ARP), Aviation Safety (AVS), as well as stakeholders across multiple staff offices (e.g., NextGen (ANG)), intend to provide subject matter expertise and technical support where possible to advance AAM National Campaign objectives and ensure information captured from lessons learned informs FAA. The data, results and lessons learned from the AAM National Campaign will help inform the FAA for development of appropriate policies and procedures to enable integration of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) concepts into the National Airspace System (NAS).
