FAA’s Amereihn to address ATCA tech summit

The Air Traffic Control Association has confirmed Tina Amereihn, deputy assistant administrator for information services and chief information officer for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), as keynote speaker at the ATCA Technical Symposium, May 13 – 15.

With almost two years of experience in the role, and more than 30 years of government service, Amereihn is leading the effort to transform the FAA’s IT enterprise into a single shared IT service organisation.

The Technical Symposium held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, focuses on the latest air traffic ideas, research, products, and services. This year’s agenda highlights technology, operations, safety, and technical issues, primarily between the FAA, NASA, and corporate partners including Boeing, HP, Dell, and ICF International. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Edward L. Bolton Jr., FAA
  • Dr. John Cavolowsky, NASA
  • Dennis Filler, FAA
  • Steve Bradford, FAA
  • Dieter Eier, Frequentis
  • Rick Ducharme, Metron Aviation
  • Mary McMillan, Tetra Tech AMT
  • Robert Goldman, Delta Air Lines
  • Joe Bertapelle, JetBlue
  • Nancy Kalinowski, FAA

“The participation of the FAA’s CIO will add a much needed perspective to the Technical Symposium,” said Peter F. Dumont, president and CEO of ATCA. “ATCA continues to bring senior-level decision-makers to address the issues most important to our members and the industry.”

The Technical Symposium hosts a full conference and exhibition as well as a daylong visit to the FAA William J Hughes Technical Center on Tuesday with additional tours and exhibits. Amereihn and other speakers will cover collaboration, operations, and safety in the National Airspace System (NAS).
