ADAPT Advisory Board Meeting


ADAPT's 2nd advisory board meeting On October 2nd, we had our second advisory board meeting. It's been a good opportunity to present and discuss our results with the main stake holders of the ADAPT concept. If you want to catch up with our latest results you can find here our technical presentations. This is what we have been talking about: - The ADAPT strategic model, namely, how are we able to produce a set of flight plans for a day without breaking the sector capacities [Download ADAPT Strategic Model Presentation] - Cost estimation of delays. What if things [...]

A day in the sky. Visualizing the European air-traffic of an entire day


A day in the sky The ADAPT project aim to support strategic planning with a set of models able to accomodate the air traffic demand without introducing capacity problems to the European network and, at the same moment, allowing a certain degree of flexibility. In terms of data, the result of such models are a set of flight plans, with related time-windows representing the measure of flexibility associated with each crossing sector during the future trip. Of course, time-window might be quite different from each others depending on the centrality of a sector and on the time of [...]

Enabling strategic planning


Enabling strategic planning The aim of the ADAPT project is to adapt, create and test models and metrics that enable strategic planning (early information sharing), by providing the information on flight flexibility and network hotspots, which can eventually be integrated into the Network Operations Plan (NOP) and serve as a basis for stakeholder collaboration. Early information sharing A part of the capacity-demand imbalances, and consequent delays, is caused by unforeseen factors, like weather. The other part is triggered by the lack of accurate information exchange at the required time horizons. The ANSPs plan capacity provision months ahead [...]

Network Wide Tactical Assessment


Network Wide Tactical Assessment The time windows and the routes identified at the strategic level (read our insight on strategic planning) need to be validated at the tactical level, i.e. from an operational point of view. At this stage, we perform scenario simulations of the en-route phase of all flights present in a selected (large) portion of the airspace over a selected time horizon, such as one day. The input to these simulations are the planned 4-D trajectories for all considered flights obtained in the strategic planning phase and (ii) the associated Time Windows. Such data [...]

Flight centric tactical assessment


Flight centric tactical assessment Already developed at the strategic level, time windows are assessed in the tactical phase also from a flight performance point of view, i.e., fuel consumption and arrival flight delay. We consider a time horizon from a few hours before flight departure up to 20 minutes before arrival, when the horizon of the Arrival Manager process begins. The input of this assessment are the time windows and routes obtained at the strategic level. Here, uncertainties that at the strategic level are difficult to capture, such as weather forecast errors for the day of the operation [...]

Prototype and Data Visualization


Prototype and Data Visualization The full concept of the ADAPT solution involves the consultation with the stakeholders (ANSPs and AUs), not only to refine the metrics needed in their decision-making processes, but also to define a way of presenting and assessing this information in a useful way. Since the ADAPT consortium has expertise in data visualization techniques and HMI design, the outcomes of the project will be developed into static and dynamic visualizations, abstracting the relevant features and allowing users to understand the type and operational impact of the information presented. The whole process will be carried out [...]
