In November 2016, Claudia moved from Grand Rapids, MI, to Washington, DC, to begin work as an RTCA Program Director for several Special Committees including SC-217, Aeronautical Databases; SC-223, Internet Protocol Suites (IPS) and AeroMACS; and SC-227, Standards of Navigation Performance. Among other taskings and responsibilities, these committees are working to revise standards to support future air traffic management requirements of NextGen and SESAR, as well as develop multiple standards that are intended for designers, manufacturers and installers of avionics equipment; airspace managers and service providers; and the users of these navigation systems for world-wide operations.
