THE PROJECTThe NAS101 training course was an opportunity for LST, a contractor with decades of experience working on the National Airspace (NAS), to share their expertise and knowledge with NASA engineers in a half-day training session. The NAS has developed over decades and incorporates both cutting-edge and legacy technologies that serve a wide range of stakeholders from the aerospace industry to the flying public.
Developing content and structure of the NAS101 training course that would engage the audience to convey as much meaningful information as possible in a four-hour event.
To create a seamless and engaging virtual experience the event used an innovative approach that combined their production experience with technological solutions.
Virtual Control Room
A video sharing service was adapted to function as a virtual control room, creating simultaneous video conference calls: a front-facing feed that the attendees would see, and a second “behind the scenes” feed for the staff and speakers.
The event featured a variety of graphics to support the presentations, including a map of the US showing TRACONS at most major cities, a history of commercial flight timeline, and airport taxiway diagrams.
KAIA organized the event by simultaneously developing the online event platform and coordinated across many departments to collect media and interview speakers. Existing photos, videos, and charts were quickly adapted to the new virtual format.
Live and Pre-Recorded Presentations
With scheduling conflicts and mixed quality of internet connection, it was decided that some speakers would present live on the event day, while others would be pre-recorded. Professional recording equipment was shipped to speakers, and they were coached on camera and lighting setup.
This project included:
- Graphic Support
- Video Production
- Live Event Support
- Technical Coaching
- Brand Storytelling
The virtual NAS101 training course proved to be an unqualified success.
The virtual format allowed the event to reach more busy professionals than an in-person event ever could, extending the impact of the initial investment.
The video recording of the event was repackaged and made available online, providing ongoing access to the valuable information and further extending the impact of the initial investment.
