Your mission is to provide high-performance air navigation services through cutting-edge solutions.

Our mission is to assist you in testing and validating these solutions.

Use cases

Allowing ANSPs to validate local DCB tools interacting with NM system

The SESAR 2020 PJ09 Project develops local ATFCM tools, making the bridge between ATFCM and ATC. These local tools connect to the central NM system through B2B services. In order to test and validate those local tools and the interactions between local tools through...

Improving CDM between Airspace Users and Airports

In 2019, the EEC hosted two interesting joint validation exercises that pooled the expertise of Agency teams working on two SESAR 2020 projects, Optimised Airspace User Operations (PJ07 led by EUROCONTROL) and Total Airport Management (PJ04). Stakeholder Objectives...

ToBeFree – Trajectory-based free routing in lower airspace

A real-time simulation was conducted in the framework of SESAR PJ06 Solution 2 at the EUROCONTROL Experimental Centre in December 2018, thanks to international cooperation between Poland PANSA, Lithuania ORO NAVIGACIJA (ON), Rzeszow (PL) University of Technology...

Introducing a second runway at Dublin Airport

This simulation demonstrated that the new concept of operations developed to operate Dublin Airport with a second parallel runway is workable and will cope with the predicted traffic increase. The simulation also demonstrated that use of the existing Point Merge...

Assessing the future performance of the ATM Network

Every 5 year, The Challenges of Growth study assess long term traffic forecasts (i.e. 2035 or 2040 time horizon) and the means to mitigate the capacity challenge ahead. Future network operations are modelled using RNEST to look at the performance impact in particular...

Implementing User Driven Prioritisation Process (UDPP) at Zurich airport

UDPP (User Driven Prioritisation Process) allows airspace users to minimise the impact of delay in capacity constraint situations. Actually, the UDPP process solves a capacity constraint by attributing ground delays based on airspace user preferences. During the...

Validating Probabilistic Network Traffic Forecast

Traffic demand prediction is key to enable all network users to act and react to traffic imbalances. To improve traffic prediction, a probabilistic approach has been developed where flights are applied probabilities to be still counted in the sectors or not in the...

Bringing together ATM experts to share & learn – BADA Community

Becoming a BADA user means joining a close-knit community of operational experts and researchers from across the entire industry, from air navigation service providers to aircraft manufacturers and R&D bodies. Each year, you’ll be invited to take part in the BADA User...
Redesigning the airspace of NAV Portugal.

Implementing an additional airport / Redesigning airspace to increase flight capacity – LISBON

While demand for flights increased each year, there was limited scope to expand Lisbon’s main airport. NAV Portugal therefore requested our assistance to safely implement a second airport. Maximising airport capacity To convert an existing adjacent military airport...

A realistic Human-Machine Interface – key element of a successful simulation

The quality of a real-time simulation does not depend only on the realism of the traffic sample and the airspace, but also, and most of all, on the realism of the human machine interface. Indeed, to guarantee that metrics generated during the simulation are valid,...
