PJ.18 – 4D Trajectory management (4DTM)
Title of Proposal:
4D Trajectory Management – SESAR.IR-VLD.Wave1-21-2015
Grant Agreement number: 734161 (H2020-SESAR-2015-2/H2020-SESAR-2015-2)
According to the SESAR2020 Multi Annual Program: 2016 – 2019
PJ.18-02: Integration of trajectory management processes in planning and execution
This work refers to the management, negotiation and sharing of the Shared Business Trajectory/Shared Mission Trajectory (SBT/SMT), as well as the management, updating, revision and sharing of the Reference Business Trajectory/ Reference Mission Trajectory RBT/RMT, and finally the transition from the SBT/SMT to the RBT/RMT. The solution consolidates the extension of the trajectory and flight plan information exchange and delivers the technical solution to provide the infrastructure enabling seamless operation and trajectory sharing in response to the need of the SESAR Solutions.
PJ.18-06: Performance Based Trajectory Prediction
This refers to data exchange between air and ground and the use of other sources in order to support all advanced operational processes required in SESAR 2020. The work looks at how the trajectory predictions for Air Traffic Control (ATC), Flight Operations Centre (FOC) and Network Manager (NM) can be improved, taking into account all possible data sources (legacy or not).
The work performed under PJ.18 enables other SESAR 2020 projects (mainly Solution Projects) to take advantage of this consolidated view of the trajectory (and overall flight information), which is built from individual views of the different ATM stakeholders and covers the planning and execution phase of the flight. The trajectories computed by the ground stakeholders (Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), Network manager (NM), Airport Operators, etc.) will also be improved thanks to the usage of improved information coming from the Airspace Users, such as Aircraft & Flight Operation Centre (FOC).
Most of the PJ.18 partners have been involved in SESAR 1 activities related to Trajectory Management. The gained experience will help to achieve the expected maturity level at the end of Wave 1.
The project will develop and provide prototypes for improving the availability, consistency, quality and exchange of enhanced Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) and meteorological (MET) information. These prototypes will be based on the operational requirements expressed by other SESAR 2020 projects.
