Allowing ANSPs to validate local DCB tools interacting with NM system

Home » 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 NM, INNOVE ‘played’ the role of the NM system during dedicated validation exercises, thanks to its compatible B2B services.

Cloud-based validation platform

For this purpose, INNOVE supported specifically:

  • The NM collaborative decision-making platform (M-CDM).
  • The creation of Short-term ATFCM measures (STAMs).
  • The provision of pre-defined STAM scenarios.
  • The provision of realistic traffic data through pub-sub data distribution.
  • The simulated execution of airborne STAM measures.
  • The simulated re-filing of STAM measures for planned flights.

Dedicated cloud-based INNOVE platforms were provided to 5 ANSPs (ENAIRE, ENAV, Skyguide and COOPANS/Austrocontrol, COOPANS/Crocontrol) and their associated Industry Partner (IDS, Skysoft, INDRA and THALES), allowing them to gradually integrate their local tools and to set up validation exercises.

“In the context of S2020 PJ09.02 validations, ENAV validated the communication of its ATFM tool with the EUROCONTROL INNOVE Platform to receive scenario data as profiles, entry and occupancy data to start the analysis to determine the nature of the hotspot/peak and the Demand Measure to be applied. Through the INNOVE Platform, STAM measure proposals were also exchanged with Crystal, the Skyguide local ATFM tool.”
