Integration of Energy Management Concepts into the Flight Deck 811066

The NASA Langley Research Center has initiated a research program to investigate the integration of energy/flight management computations and information into today’s and tomorrow’s flight deck. This paper discusses one completed effort that involved the development and flight testing of a fuelefficient, time-based metering descent algorithm in a research cockpit environment. Two ongoing efforts discussed include: the application of this algorithm to a hand-held calculator for use in today’s transport cockpit; and the development of an advanced concepts simulator for studies aimed at investigating the integration of energy management into the flight deck of the future.
