Airspace model simulation of Santa Maria OACC

This note describes a simulation study of the Santa Maria OACC using the EUROCONTROL Airspace Model on behalf of ANA-EP, the Portuguese Civil Aviation Authority.The study, a follow on from EEC Task No. AF59 (EEC Report No. 287, issued September, 1995), evaluated the impact of introduction of reduced vertical separation minima (RVSM) in the Santa Maria FIR/UIR, utilising an RVSM transition area located in the Lisbon West sector.Current and proposed CAE system working methods were tested.The study showed the capability of the OACC to efficiently cope with RVSM implementation although some workload difficulties could be expected using current system working methods.
