WASHINGTON — NASA will update its National Aviation Operations Monitoring Service, or NAOMS, Web site Tuesday to add more information from pilot survey responses.

The data files are essentially the same files posted to the Web site in late 2007 and early 2008. However, the files are packaged differently and contain fewer redactions than the original postings. Therefore, they provide more information from the NAOMS aviation safety surveys. The surveys were conducted from 2001 through 2004.

This release, in Microsoft Excel format, fulfills NASA’s commitment to provide as much information as possible without compromising the anonymity and confidentiality promised to survey participants or the commercial confidentiality of the airlines and organizations involved. It also ensures that aviation safety researchers and the public have access to additional information that may be used to develop future models for safety systems to monitor the National Airspace System. NASA has no plans to post any additional NAOMS information after Sept. 30.

Additional information and the survey responses from the NAOMS project are available at:
