DIANE Publishing, May 14, 2011 - 24 pages
The Fed. Aviation Admin.'s (FAA) successful transition to its Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) depends on developing and implementing the System Wide Information Management (SWIM) program. FAA plans to spend about $284 million through 2015 to implement the first of three stages of SWIM. As envisioned, SWIM will form the basis for a secure network that manages and shares information more efficiently among all air traffic systems that will comprise NextGen. Key benefits expected from SWIM are streamlined data communications and real-time information that will improve air traffic management, enhance airspace capacity, reduce flight delays, and decrease costs for FAA and aviation users.The objectives of this audit report were to were to (1) determine the development and implementation status of SWIM and (2) assess the risks facing SWIM's successful deployment. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
