As Director of the Environmental and Energy Systems Technical Center at the Volpe Center, Gregg Fleming has over 25 years of experience in all aspects of transportation-related acoustics, air quality, and climate issues. He has guided the technical work of numerous, multi-faceted teams on projects supporting all levels of Government, Industry, and Academia, including the International Civil Aviation Organization, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Highway Administration, the National Park Service, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Academy of Sciences.
Mr. Fleming is responsible for the design, development, and deployment of internationally-recognized environmental analysis tools, including the FAA's Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT), the FAA's Integrated Noise Model (INM), FAA's System for assessing Aviation's Global Emissions (SAGE), and FHWA's Traffic Noise Model (TNM). The FAA tools are used for establishing national and international policies pertaining to aviation and the environment, including noise and environmental stringencies and domestic analyses in support of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). FHWA's TNM is used for designing highway noise barriers and informing the federal distribution of noise mitigation funds related to highway noise barrier construction. He is also responsible for evaluating, establishing, and maintaining standardized procedures for national and international aircraft noise certification. Most recently, he has been working with industry and academia on projects related to alternative fuels, with particular focus on approaches to achieving carbon-neutral growth.
Under Mr. Fleming's direction the Environmental and Energy Systems Technical Center maintains an extensive laboratory of environmental measurement and monitoring instrumentation, including a quick-response capability to support all aspects of transportation-related environmental measurements.
Mr. Fleming currently co-chairs the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) Modeling and Databases Task Force and represents the Federal Aviation Administration at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. He is Chairman Emeritus of the Transportation Research Board's Committee for Transportation Related Noise and Vibration and is active in the Society of Automotive Engineers, as well as numerous other technical organizations.
Mr. Fleming holds a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Lowell. He has co-authored numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and has participated substantially in the development of national and international standards on technical issues pertaining to acoustics, air quality, and climate change.
