TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
The Innovation Laboratory, Inc., proposes to build a tool to estimate airline costs under TBO. This tool includes a cost model that
explicitly reasons about traffic demand and weather conditions in the
National Airspace System (NAS), mathematical models for weather
translation and ATM-impact, line of flight impacts of delay propagation,
large quantities of historical NAS and airline data ("Big Data"), and fixed and variable cost accounting.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
NASA can use this cost estimation tool to address the cost/benefits of TBO. Also, it can be linked to traffic flow management (TFM) optimization algorithms to assess the costs to airlines of TFM strategies.

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Many forms of government and industry must work together in NextGen investments. Our cost models transform historical and current
weather data into ATM impacts for the purpose of cost estimation.
Additionally, airline customers can use our cost estimation models to make informed decisions on the routing, diversion, or cancellation of flights.
