The AUDIO project aims to demonstrate Air Traffic Management solutions developed in SESAR 1 in an operational environment in order to show their effectiveness and facilitate their industrial deployment.
With the implementation of SESAR 1 solutions available to controllers, airports will be capable of providing local data such as the traffic situation and taxi routings. Sharing this information with pilots in the cockpit is expected to generate even more benefits for airport operations.
AUDIO will demonstrate the use of a Connected Moving Map application onboard Lufthansa aircraft taxiing at Hamburg Airport. This advanced application shows the traffic situation and additional taxi routing information to the flight crew.
The implementation of the SESAR solutionas will assist controllers in their duty to safely guide aircraft at the airport while also supporting flight crews in navigating safely on the ground by providing visualized taxi route and surrounding traffic information.
Having the traffic and route in the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) gives the flight crew more information about planned surface operations and increased departure sequence predictability
With the increased complexity of traffic situations on the ground during taxi phase, providing information on the surrounding traffic situation and planned taxi routes for the crew’s own aircraft will provide an additional layer to safe operations
Pilots having the same traffic and routing information in real time as controllers leads to better situational awareness, easier anticipation and less stress
Optimised surface routing means lower emissions, less noise, and reduced fuel consumption per aircraft movement
With a live demonstration at Hamburg Airport, integrating Lufthansa as a major European Airspace User, AUDIO advances the deployment of SESAR Solutions by proving their readiness for day-to-day operations.
The SESAR Solutions
The SESAR Solutions for integrated airport operations to be demonstrated in AUDIO enable more efficient and safe operations in increasingly busy airports.
Safer planning, more fluidity, less stress
Sharing surrounding traffic information and optimised surface route planning with the flight crew is expected to increase the efficiency and predictability of taxiing operations as well as increasing common situational awareness.
