Booz Allen/Volpe to advance NextGen environmental system

Booz Allen Hamilton announced it has been awarded a competitive $9.7 million task order to support the U.S. Department of Transportation, Research and Innovative Technology Administration, Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center) in the development of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) Environmental Management System (EMS).
Under the terms of the task order, Booz Allen will continue to partner with the Volpe Center in delivering innovative environmental solutions to reduce aviation’s impact to the environment.
“Overcoming aviation’s environmental challenges requires the cooperation of diverse stakeholders including airports, airlines, manufactures, regulators, policy-makers, NGOs, and passengers” said Booz Allen Senior Vice President Doug Lane. “Booz Allen’s FAA experts specialize in addressing the complex system-wide stakeholder relationships that are key to helping the FAA accomplish its NextGen implementation and integration objectives.”
Booz Allen will support the Volpe Center and the FAA in developing and implementing an EMS framework that is flexible, information driven, adaptive and efficient. The EMS framework will be a catalyst for stakeholder cooperation and help ensure that environmental protection is built into the operational aspects of NextGen.
