A Cooperative Atm Concept Preliminary Definition For The Brazilian Environment
MetadataShow full item record
A world wide air traffic growth is expected for the future. Continuous increases of traffic demand faces limited infrastructural resources such as parking positions, airways, or runways. In general, the capacity extension of those resources is limited. New concepts under development in the Air Traffic Management (ATM) field represent a promising possibility to achieve optimal resources usage. This report provides a preliminary definition of some cooperative approaches of future ATM concept for the Brazilian environment, called C-ATM/BR, based on current R&D activities. It represents partial results of an already finished interchange project between the German Berlin Institute of Technology (TU-Berlin) and the Brazilian Aeronautics Institute of Technology (ITA). The approaches were described without consideri g specific requirements of the main involved stakeholders (e.g. Air Traffic Control - ATC,Airport, and Aircraft Operators) on the ATM processes. Activities and trends of future oriented international research programs like the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) of EUROCONTROL and the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) were examined. Also the Brazilian ATM Operational Conception and the transition program to the Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance / Air Traffic anagement (CNS/ATM) system concept for the Brazilian Air Space Control System (SISCEAB) have represented important basis. To guide the description of the cooperative approaches, this preliminary definition considered the main three pillars of: advanced common situational awareness; decision making process support; and control measures implementation. These approaches are intended to help de Brazilian Air Transportation authorities to deal with and improve its Airspace Control .
