NASA’s Digital Information Platform (DIP) to Accelerate NAS Transformation

March 16, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm PDT

ASME SCVS is happy to present our March Tech Talk of 2023 by Dr. Swati Saxena


The overall objective of NASA’s Digital Information Platform (DIP) project is to accelerate the transformation of National Airspace System (NAS) and airspace operations through the development of a foundation for advanced, data-driven, digital services for both traditional and emergent operations towards cohesive decision making. DIP is one of the research initiatives under NASA’s Air Traffic Management exploration (ATM-X) program and addresses NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate’s (ARMD) vision to develop solutions for challenges in aviation related to growing demand for mobility, the sustainability of energy and the environment, and technology advances in information, communications and automation.

The primary focus of DIP is to establish an easily accessible cloud-based Digital Information Platform utilized by a community of data and service providers and operators. The users will gather and access real-time and historical data upon which the data-driven services for NAS users are developed and operated. One such data-driven service being developed by NASA as a reference implementation is called the Runway Configuration Prediction service. The DIP sub- project will look to promote viable relationships that facilitate one-to-many shared services model rather than traditional one-to-one services model.

In this presentation, more details about the NASA’s Digital Information Platform and the technical approach will be shared along with more information about the partnership opportunities.

Speaker Bio

Swati Saxena is currently working as a Technical Lead at NASA Ames Research Center for one of the research and technology development sub-project called Digital Information Platform (DIP) within NASA’s Air Traffic Management eXploration (ATM-X) project. Her research interests include data science for aviation (ATM), computational fluid dynamics and HPC, engine icing, turbomachinery and aeroacoustics. 

Before joining NASA, Swati has worked at Ansys Inc. and the GE Global Research Center. She has also held an adjunct faculty position at Santa Clara University. She is a lifetime senior member of AIAA and a professional member of ASME. She has more than 25 technical publications and holds two patents. She completed her MS and PhD in Aerospace Engineering from Pennsylvania State University and completed her undergraduate studies from IIT Kanpur in India.
