As part of a SESAR research and development project, we are working closely with 4 major partners (Vienna, CDG Paris, Copenhagen and Zurich) to implement Time Based Separation. The aim of TBS is to reduce the gap in landing rates with light and strong headwind to maximise airport capacity and limit airborne holding delays.

Customised simulation tools

To validate the feasibility of this change, we adapted our simulation platforms (eDEP and ESCAPE) to include the LORD tool (Leading Optimised Runway Delivery), which provides all the TBS functionalities required by the European Commission. Thanks to our extensive Base of Aircraft Data, we were able to successfully simulate the landing performance of any aircraft.

Ready for implementation

Simulations have so far been successful and our next stage is implementation. To further optimize TBS, Copenhagen also decided to interconnect the system with the cockpit – a group of pilots came to our Experimental Centre near Paris to participate in RTS simulations and provide valuable feedback.

Dynamic industry-wide collaboration

As well as collaborating with airports and ANSPs, we also worked in partnership with leading ATM solution provider Thales to provide a dedicated operating system capable of delivering the required separation minima between aircraft.

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.

As part of a SESAR research and development project, we are working closely with 4 major partners (Vienna, CDG Paris, Copenhagen and Zurich) to implement Time Based Separation. The aim of TBS is to reduce the gap in landing rates with light and strong headwind to maximise airport capacity and limit airborne holding delays.

Customised simulation tools

To validate the feasibility of this change, we adapted our simulation platforms (eDEP and ESCAPE) to include the LORD tool (Leading Optimised Runway Delivery), which provides all the TBS functionalities required by the European Commission. Thanks to our extensive Base of Aircraft Data, we were able to successfully simulate the landing performance of any aircraft.

Ready for implementation

Simulations have so far been successful and our next stage is implementation. To further optimize TBS, Copenhagen also decided to interconnect the system with the cockpit – a group of pilots came to our Experimental Centre near Paris to participate in RTS simulations and provide valuable feedback.

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.

As part of a SESAR research and development project, we are working closely with 4 major partners (Vienna, CDG Paris, Copenhagen and Zurich) to implement Time Based Separation. The aim of TBS is to reduce the gap in landing rates with light and strong headwind to maximise airport capacity and limit airborne holding delays.

Customised simulation tools

To validate the feasibility of this change, we adapted our simulation platforms (eDEP and ESCAPE) to include the LORD tool (Leading Optimised Runway Delivery), which provides all the TBS functionalities required by the European Commission. Thanks to our extensive Base of Aircraft Data, we were able to successfully simulate the landing performance of any aircraft.

Ready for implementation

Simulations have so far been successful and our next stage is implementation. To further optimize TBS, Copenhagen also decided to interconnect the system with the cockpit – a group of pilots came to our Experimental Centre near Paris to participate in RTS simulations and provide valuable feedback.

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.

As part of a SESAR research and development project, we are working closely with 4 major partners (Vienna, CDG Paris, Copenhagen and Zurich) to implement Time Based Separation. The aim of TBS is to reduce the gap in landing rates with light and strong headwind to maximise airport capacity and limit airborne holding delays.

Customised simulation tools

To validate the feasibility of this change, we adapted our simulation platforms (eDEP and ESCAPE) to include the LORD tool (Leading Optimised Runway Delivery), which provides all the TBS functionalities required by the European Commission. Thanks to our extensive Base of Aircraft Data, we were able to successfully simulate the landing performance of any aircraft.

Ready for implementation

Simulations have so far been successful and our next stage is implementation. To further optimize TBS, Copenhagen also decided to interconnect the system with the cockpit – a group of pilots came to our Experimental Centre near Paris to participate in RTS simulations and provide valuable feedback.

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.

As part of a SESAR research and development project, we are working closely with 4 major partners (Vienna, CDG Paris, Copenhagen and Zurich) to implement Time Based Separation. The aim of TBS is to reduce the gap in landing rates with light and strong headwind to maximise airport capacity and limit airborne holding delays.

Customised simulation tools

To validate the feasibility of this change, we adapted our simulation platforms (eDEP and ESCAPE) to include the LORD tool (Leading Optimised Runway Delivery), which provides all the TBS functionalities required by the European Commission. Thanks to our extensive Base of Aircraft Data, we were able to successfully simulate the landing performance of any aircraft.

Ready for implementation

Simulations have so far been successful and our next stage is implementation. To further optimize TBS, Copenhagen also decided to interconnect the system with the cockpit – a group of pilots came to our Experimental Centre near Paris to participate in RTS simulations and provide valuable feedback.

Dynamic industry-wide collaboration

As well as collaborating with airports and ANSPs, we also worked in partnership with leading ATM solution provider Thales to provide a dedicated operating system capable of delivering the required separation minima between aircraft.

INNOVE: Full-fledged ATFM real-time simulator

[et_pb_dcsbcm_divi_breadcrumbs_module _builder_version=”3.0.85″ hide_homebreadcrumb=”off” separator=”sep-raquo” hide_currentbreadcrumb=”off” homebreadcrumborientation=”left” background_layout=”light” fontsbreadcrumbs_font_size_tablet=”51″ fontsbreadcrumbs_line_height_tablet=”2″ fontsseperator_font_size_tablet=”51″ fontsseperator_line_height_tablet=”2″ fontsbreadcrumblinks_font_size_tablet=”51″ fontsbreadcrumblinks_line_height_tablet=”2″ fontsbreadcrumbs_font_size=”13″ saved_tabs=”all” global_module=”479″ /]

INNOVE is an air traffic flow management real-time simulator for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level.

INNOVE is built on off-the-shelf software technologies. Multiple actors in a simulation (e.g. Flow Managers, Airspace Users, Airport simulators) can connect to INNOVE through NM compatible web services (B2B) from any physical location.

INNOVE is an ATFM real-time simulation platform for the validation of Network Management solutions at E-OCVM V2 maturity level. INNOVE can be used in the following areas:

  • Validation of new operational concepts, flow management and airspace management tools.
  • Studies to evaluate alternative flow management solutions in a realistic operational environment.
  • Technical verification of local flow management tool interconnectivity with NM Systems.
  • Familiarisation and study projects using NM B2B Web services.

Proven Off-the-Shelf Technology

INNOVE is implemented by using proven off-the shelf technologies like Apache Tomcat, Jetty, Hibernate, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, JAVA, SOAP, REST.

NM B2B Web Services

INNOVE offers most of the NM B2B Web Services and Publish/Subscribe services, always compatible with Operational NM Release N-1, providing client systems and HMI Tools an easy path towards integration with the operational NM system.

INNOVE can implement additional services and features at the request of projects before their final implementation in the NMVP or NM OPS system, allowing faster development cycles and risk and cost reduction.

INNOVE offers some REST services for simulation control and exchange of simulation-specific environment files between connected systems.

INNOVE B2B web services can run in a cloud-based environment allowing for distributed simulations using easy connections through the internet.

Simulator Interconnectivity

INNOVE offers customised solutions to connect to other simulators in an integrated validation platform. INNOVE comes standard with a connection to the RAMS ATC simulator, providing a closed loop simulation between ATFM and ATC. A connection to other ATC simulators like EDEP and ESCAPE is in the pipeline. INNOVE has already successfully integrated with the ATHOS Airport simulation platform.

Realistic Simulation Data and Reliable Results

INNOVE simulations are based on data recorded by the operational NM system. Traffic data is based on allFT+ data files and airspace data on DDR2 data files. NEST and RNEST can be used as tools to generate the required simulation data for an INNOVE scenario.

INNOVE can produce output files during or after an INNOVE simulation. Those files are RNEST compatible files and can be injected into RNEST analysis tools for post-simulation analysis and report production.
