Booz Allen to Help Develop FAA’s NextGen Environmental System

Booz Allen Hamilton announced it has been awarded a $9.7 million task order to help develop the Federal Aviation Administration's next generation air transportation environmental management system.

Under the order, Booz Allen will support the U.S. Transportation Department, Research and Innovative Technology Administration and the Volpe National Transportation Center in developing new and improved EMS framework.

According to an FAA report, NextGen EMS strives to enhance the safety and reliability of air transportation while improving efficiency to reduce aviation's impact on the environment.

The FAA hopes to achieve this by improving engine technologies, using alternative fuels and further developing airport infrastructure in a way that promotes sustained aviation growth.

“Overcoming aviation's environmental challenges requires the cooperation of diverse stakeholders including airports, airlines, manufactures, regulators, policy-makers, NGOs and passengers,“ said Doug Lane, a Booz Allen senior vice president.

According to the FAA, EMS emerged in the early 1990’s as an approach for organizations to manage potential environment consequences based on their operations. Today, the EMS framework is coordinated among the various FAA lines of business, and with other government agencies and aviation community stakeholders.
