Prior to joining ATSL, Arman finished his B.S. and M.S. programs in Industrial and System Engineering. Arman worked in a pharmaceutical distribution company as an operation research consultant for around two years and helped them optimize their distribution network regarding the location, allocation and routing of their distribution centers. During the time at ATSL, Arman has been developing a computer flight simulation tool (Global Oceanic Model) in collaboration with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and its contractors for evaluating new policies, procedures and technologies related to NextGen program to improve flight operations over global oceanic airspaces. This model is used to support the business case of advanced oceanic surveillance technologies such as space-based ADS-B considering multi-regional analyses. Also, he developed this model to measure the benefits of In Trail Procedure (ITP) as one of the FAA's novel surveillance and broadcast services and analyzed the Advanced Technologies and Oceanic Procedures (ATOP) system data for validating the model. In addition, Arman is part of a team developing this flight simulation model to assess the safety and efficiency impacts associated with provision of meteorological Information to aircraft operating in oceanic airspaces. Arman used MATLAB considerably for his research and have extensive background using the optimization toolbox and the mapping toolbox.
