Objectives

Environmental sustainability is instrumental for the future of aviation. The project is demonstrating on a larger scale several solutions in the airport environment, which research has shown can bring efficiencies, both operationally and environmentally. These include procedures to enable more efficient and integrated runway throughput and terminal operations; a collaborative framework for managing delay constraints on arrivals; and improved arrival and departure operations.

The project demonstrates the already delivered solutions as well as those in the pipeline that are addressing the following:

  • Integrated runway throughput and terminal efficiency
  • Collaborative framework managing delay constraints on arrivals)
  • Dynamic E-TMA for advanced continuous climb and descent operations and improved arrival and departure operations

The project conducts a number of real-time simulations (RTSs) and a live trial on two different operational environments one for departures and another one for arrivals, to demonstrate the benefits of the integrated TMA and runway throughput solutions. The aim is to deliver a fast track towards deployment, maximise network performance by combining solutions to facilitate greener of aviation.

This project has received funding from the SESAR Joint Undertaking under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101017622
