Technological Enablers Validation Report

The focus of the EP3 WP6 activity is the technical validation of Airborne and Ground Enablers linked to ATM Capability Level 2. Its objective is to reach a TRL4 for the tested functions. It corresponds to an early validation process that enables to refine the system specification of the function, to demonstrate that the function is feasible and measure function performances. 

The evaluation done in WP6 concentrated on ATM service level 2 (ready to be deployed in 2013). Two concept elements were studied in more details using an integrated air-ground industry based platform: - Initial 4D Trajectory Management The main objective was to assess the Initial 4D functionality relevance in regards to the ATM concept of operations. Secondary objective was to verify operational acceptance from a flight crew perspective and identify potential issues related to the function design. - ASAS Sequencing & Merging The 3 following manoeuvres were evaluated: Remain behind, Merge behind, and Radar vector then merge behind In addition, an RTA performance evaluation ran several batches of scenarios to collect statistical results on RTA precision achieved by the FMS. The successive batches were run varying key parameters, such as wind data.
