|Publication Date:||6 February 2002|
PURPOSE. This order prescribes the policy on the release of National Airspace System (NAS) data and the use of interface equipment by persons or agencies outside the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the United States Government, which are not otherwise authorized access to this data by public law or existing agreements or contracts duly executed by the Government. This order does not prohibit the FAA Research and Development (R&D) projects, when working with outside interests from interfacing to the operational NAS computer and sharing radar data or equipment at the time of test or demonstration, nor shall it prohibit or limit projects within the NAS. This order establishes the Data Release Review Committee. This order does not affect, modify, or control the FAA's legal obligation relating to the release of NAS data under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 USC 552. Agreements made with foreign countries are outside the scope of this order.
