Additional panelists to follow.
The Eno Center for Transportation (Eno) will present its recently completed paper on the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). NextGen is a comprehensive overhaul of our National Airspace System, replacing an aging ground-based radar system, with a satellite/GPS based system. With a continuous roll-out of improvements and upgrades, NextGen has the potential to guide and track air traffic with more precision and efficiency, reducing congestion, fuel consumption, noise and pollution. 
This paper breaks new ground by providing a realistic assessment of the potential costs and benefits of NextGen and a discussion of possible funding options. The presentation of the Eno NextGen paper will be followed by a response to the paper and a discussion of NextGen issues by a panel of top experts from the government and the aviation industry.

Founded in 2007 by former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) is a non-profit organization that drives principled solutions through rigorous analysis, reasoned negotiation and respectful dialogue.
