BULATSA Made a Demonstration of Project PJ.10-02a of SESAR 2020 Programme
BULATSA hosted a Visitors’ Day to present the conducted validation of the TESLA prototype for pre-industrialization phase, under project PJ.10-02a – “Improved Performance in the Provision of Separation”. The prototype TESLA (Tactical Encounter SoLver Assistant) is a joint project of Airbus D&S and BULATSA, launched in 2016 in fulfillment of activities of SESAR 2020 Programme.
Representatives of the air navigation service providers of France, Germany, Poland and Italy and other guests from the industry, including Airbus Aircraft and Deep Blue Consulting & Research, got acquainted with the prototype’s progress and functionalities in interactive format. They watched a demonstration session of TESLA’s behavior and capabilities through air traffic management simulation. Bulgarian air traffic controllers demonstrated the resolution of many conflict situations in the area of Sofia Approach and Sofia Control through the use of the prototype, which examines the possibilities for improving the accuracy of the predicted airplane trajectory using current flight data from the aircraft board (EPP – Extended projected profile).
SESAR 2020 is a programme of the European Union that is focused on the development and validation of technological solutions in the field of air traffic management. It is funded by the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
