FO IOP is one of eight solutions currently being developed as part of the Four Dimensions Trajectory Management (4DTM) project, whose overall aim is to establish the technological building blocks for trajectory based operations
The scientists on the TBO-Met project (Meteorological Uncertainty Management for Trajectory Based Operations
) have developed an algorithm that is applied to the flight plan and allows air traffic to be predicted and improved by taking into account the uncertainties of the weather forecast.
As a contribution to the SES High-Level Goals, the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) Concept of Operations [1, 2] is structured around the new concept of Trajectory Based Operations
(TBO), which consists of a coordination of four dimensional trajectory predictions and executions subject to generic ATM constraints imposed across all involved operational stakeholders during the last 24 hours before flight arrival .
"Implementation of the concept will represent a significant first step in the movement of international aviation to Trajectory Based Operations
Both aspects will improve trajectory based operations
and thus improve the experience for the passengers.
Future Air and Ground safety nets need to support Trajectory Based Operations
and new separation modes: they must provide necessary alerts for actual or potential hazardous situations in an efficient way and avoid or minimise unnecessary alerts.
Project partners will make significant efforts to assess together with operational experts the benefits of initial trajectory sharing, its system impacts, potential human performance impacts and opportunities for further ATM performance improvements.DIGITS will bridge the gap between the early validation of the Trajectory Based Operations
concept achieved in SESAR 1, also known as initial 4D , with successful flight trials in 2012 and 2014, and the deployment of PCP AF#6."
