BULATSA and LEONARDO hosted a Visitors’ Day to present the results of the validation on projects PJ.03a – Integrated Surface Management (SUMO) and PJ.03b – Airport Safety Nets (SAFE) of SESAR 2020 Programme, conducted on a test system GAINS.

The purpose of PJ.03а project is to find a solution for improved guidance of aircraft and motor vehicles on the airport surface combined with routing. PJ.03b gives a solution for enhanced airport safety nets, assisting air traffic controllers to avoid conflicts. BULATSA participates in these projects, together with LEONARDO, to share its views on the better definition of system functionalities and to support the validation of PJ.03a / PJ.03b, which took place in BULATSA between 22-26, October 2018.

Within the Visitors' Day were conducted exercises on LEONARDO's system GAINS and were tested two sets of software functionalities – Route Planning and Management (PJ.03a) and Surface Conflict Alert (SCA) Functionalities (PJ.03b). The event was also attended by international experts from AirFrance, UkSATSE (ANSP of Ukraine), Crocontrol (ANSP of Croatia), ROMATSA (ANSP of Romania), LFV (ANSP of Sweden), ENAV (ANSP of Italy) and representatives of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
