Future ATFM Measures: the solution to airspace
According to the FAM concept,
air traffic flow management in Europe can be enhanced by better co-operation of
all stakeholders, in order to maximise the efficiency of the system. Through
enhanced information, communication and negotiation in real time, traffic
demand not anticipated in the planning phase can be absorbed safely in the
tactical phase in a process termed Real-Time Traffic Synchronisation.
Development: Oxymoron, Industry Buzzword?
The aviation industry
talks a lot these days about sustainable development or growth. But in fact the
term is somewhat contradictory. This report seeks to develop some consensus
about the definition, from the different aviation stakeholders.
and suggestions would be welcome as part of the process of developing this
consensus in the definition.
- Getting Down to Final Approach with ASAS Preliminary
ACAS / ASAS Interaction Analysis Completed
Initial results from a
simulation evaluating the use of new spacing instructions indicate earlier flow
integration, fewer manoeuvring instructions, less late vectoring and more
regular spacing on final approach.
Phase 1 of the IAPA
(Implications on ACAS Performances due to ASAS implementation) project has
selected lateral crossing as a challenging ASAS application from an ACAS / ASAS
interaction perspective. A framework was established for in-depth investigation
in Phase 2.
Learning Safety from other Industries
A review of over 500 techniques related to safety in nine industries has
been carried out, to determine what ATM safety can 'borrow' from other industry
best practice. A set of 19 techniques has been recommended for adaptation to
ATM over the next five years. More...
TALIS 1 Project Finished
