James Eck, FAA, to Deliver Conference Keynote on April 19

James EckVice President of the Program Management Organization (PMO) within the Federal Aviation Administration Air Traffic Organization

The PMO is responsible for all NextGen Program activity, all NAS communication, navigation, weather, surveillance and automation infrastructure modernization programs, and all service life extensions to legacy NAS sensors, communications and navigation aids.

Given the very tight coupling between successful automation program delivery and current system operation, the PMO also leads and manages all second-level automation engineering efforts. Additionally, the PMO manages significant business process re-engineering efforts for other FAA lines of business. Finally, the PMO works directly with FAA operations and aviation users to develop and implement avionics standards and systems that ensure globally interoperable solutions for the NextGen. Jim has been working acquisition programs since joining the FAA in 1996. In addition to program development and execution, he has been active in leading acquisition management policy and workforce development. Prior to joining the FAA, Jim spent 18 years working for the U.S. Navy, concluding his work with the Naval Command Control and Ocean Surveillance Center in tactical communications research and development.
