Simulation Plan on Separation Management in the TMA
The fast-time simulation test a number of operational improvements related to the new separation modes in the TMA described in the SESAR Concept. The initial emphasis is on obtaining a system level assessment of the concept's ability to deliver the defined performance benefits in the 2020 time horizon corresponding to ATM Capability Level 2/3 and the second Implementation Package (IP 2). A sensitivity analysis will be done to provide guidelines on the required task load reduction needed from new support tools (Conflict Detection, Conflict Resolution and Monitoring tools). It also contains an exercise aiming at clarifying the transition process between a complex and structured TMA to a bigger one.
