Terique Barney

Bio


Terique Barney is an aerospace research engineer and joined the Crew Systems and Aviation Operations Branch in November 2016. His research areas while at NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) have primarily been focused on aspects of Airborne Trajectory Management, including Trajectory-Based Operations and Strategic, Automated Trajectory Optimization and Negotiation for en route flights. Terique began working on the Automated Flight and Contingency Management sub-project under the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) project in October 2020. Prior to that, he worked on the Increasing Diverse Operations sub-project under the Air Traffic Management-eXploration (ATM-X) project, where he functioned as the Software Implementation Lead as well as a Co-Principal Investigator leading a series of studies supporting Strategic Airborne Trajectory Management technology research and development. Terique began his NASA career working on the Air Traffic Demonstration-3 (ATD-3) sub-project as the local Test and Evaluation Lead for NASA’s Traffic Aware Planner research prototype. This technology supported the Traffic Aware Strategic Aircrew Request (TASAR) research concept, which saw successful technology transfer to industry in 2019.

Terique received a Master’s degree in Systems Engineering at Old Dominion University in May 2020, and completed additional graduate coursework at Johns Hopkins University. He earned a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Virginia in 2013. Prior to joining the NASA family, Terique trained as a Test Director at Aberdeen Test Center for the Department of the Army. His interests include R&D for autonomous aviation operations and airspace operations system analysis.
