LOW COST, DECENTRALISED AIRPORT COORDINATION
This Solution was formerly part of PJ.04-01-W1
The introduction of a centralised, multi-stakeholder command and control facility such as the airport operations centre (APOC) developed by SESAR 1 and the first wave of SESAR 2020 are shown to improve airport resilience in large airports. Regional airports lack the same level of resources however still have an important impact on overall network performance[TK1] .
This candidate solution, devoted to regional airports, considers the benefits of a lite-APOC for regional airports based on enhanced process automation (including machine learning techniques) and innovative approaches to information sharing including through a more decentralised approach.
Cost efficiency is one of the main drivers behind this concept as it strives to deliver the benefits of APOC to all types of airports. Until now APOC implementations have focused on physical deployment of a multi-stakeholder facility to foster cooperation and information sharing. The need to extend the benefits to regional airports makes it necessary to study other, more innovative approaches to an APOC deployment based on new technologies and methodologies, such as increased levels of automation and information sharing.
