Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT)
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Office of Environment and Energy (AEE) developed the Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT) to estimate the environmental consequences of aviation actions, such as noise, fuel consumption, and air pollutant emissions, to help the FAA comply with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA).
The FAA developed this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) in accordance with Section 208 of the E-Government Act of 2002 because the AEDT collects personally identifiable information (PII) such as business contact information from members of the public (e.g., environmental analysis consultants, airport operators, academia, and aviation original equipment manufacturers) including foreign users outside of the United States (U.S.). PII is also collected from individuals who are not associated with an organization/company. In addition, the system collects PII from DOT/FAA employees and contractors who manage the system.
