National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Ames Research Center is hereby requesting information through this notice from interested parties for the following: NASA’s Digital Information Platform (DIP) sub-project as part of Air Traffic Management – eXploration (ATM-X) project seeks to obtain information to define a collaboration strategy and identify community needs and goals.

The overall goal of DIP sub-project is to accelerate transformation of the 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. The DIP sub-project is focused on designing, developing, and demonstrating a digital data ecosystem to enable improved air traffic decision making. More specifically, 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 to gather and access real-time and historical data upon which data-driven services for NAS users are developed and operated. The DIP sub-project will look to promote viable business relationships that facilitate one-to-many shared services model rather than traditional one-to-one services model.

The DIP sub-project is interested in receiving information from stakeholders, both traditional and emergent operations, on challenges and needs for digital information and improved efficiency, predictability and scalability in airspace operations by using data-driven services. Through this RFI, DIP is trying to build an aviation community to collaboratively develop requirements for the digital information platform ecosystem, including concept, use cases, and collaborative demonstrations. The reference implementation of DIP and cloud-based digital services will be developed to demonstrate operational benefits through a series of collaborative demonstrations throughout the life of the sub-project.
