In order to handle the increased air traffic and future airspace demands, controllers, pilots and advanced system functions will all need to share the same information about flights and use automated tools that assist in detecting, analysing and resolving any potential conflicts as well as monitoring the adherence to agreed trajectories.
A first step to address the challenge is to support the AAS TP MEASURE 2 “Realise planned implementation related to mature SESAR Solutions supporting the implementation of cross-border free route, air-ground and ground-ground connectivity” and demonstrate the benefits.
The objective of this VLD is to demonstrate, in a consolidated and integrated manner, the real time synchronisation of trajectory information between all involved stakeholders.
The demonstration may consider scope such as Free routing operations in cross-border environments; Automated support for adapting the capacity with evolving demand; Cross-border interoperability of mission trajectory elements; Enhanced integration of AU trajectory definition and network management processes, Enhanced Network Traffic Prediction and shared complexity representation; ATM data service provision; Air-ground and ground-ground connectivity.
Through continuous exchange of up-to-date and consistent trajectory information between all units, the VLD will demonstrate more efficient operations, from tactical planning and complexity management, to early conflict detection and arrival management.Click for more info
