NEW TECHNOLOGY FLOURISHES WITH PERFORMANCE-BASED STANDARDS

This Solution was formerly part of PJ.14-04-03-W1

The growth in type and capability of cooperative and non-cooperative surveillance systems is helping to deliver increasingly cost-effective and versatile airspace and airport surveillance. This is supported by new standards, such as GEN-SUR-SPR developed by EUROCAE WG-102 and ESASSP V2 developed by EUROCONTROL surveillance standard task force (SSTF), which promote a top-down, performance-based approach to the provision of surveillance services.

SESAR aims to develop and harmonise the performance monitoring tools used to assess standards compliance. This represents an evolution from technology-driven standards to a safety-oriented approach that is technology agnostic. SESAR research aims to provide guidance and key performance indicators designed to assess the quality of surveillance data, and investigate new technics based on non-intrusive online performance assessments and interactions with the surveillance chain.

The objective of this candidate solution is to support the development of new surveillance technology including non-cooperative systems like multi-static primary surveillance radar (MSPSR) and video trackers; as well as cooperative surveillance systems such as ADS-B, airport and wide area multilateration (MLAT/WAM) systems; and new optical sensors to support emerging operational needs like multiple remote tower surveillance. These new cooperative and non-cooperative surveillance technologies complement existing legacy sensor systems and will help to meet the new standards in a cost-effective way.
