SESAR JU at World ATM Congress 2014
The SESAR Joint Undertaking organised a series of events as part of the World ATM Congress from the 3 to 6 March, in Madrid, Spain. Themed “From innovation to solution: partnering for smarter aviation”, the SESAR events provided the latest on the programme’s progress in delivering a solid stream of solutions in response to the most pressing operational business demands across Europe’s entire ATM system.
The agenda featured the following events:
SESAR internal meeting (SESAR members only)
Monday 3 March 2014, 15:00-18:00, Room N106
Tuesday 4 March 2014, 14:00-16:30, Room N105+N106
SESAR’s members and partners are proving that, by working together with a range of stakeholders, changes in the ATM domain are possible. The SESAR Forum explored the steps necessary to make these changes a reality and how to bring SESAR results to the market for deployment. The Forum started with several interventions and then went to a panel discussion hearing the perspectives from various stakeholders.
Workshop: Demonstrating SESAR
Wednesday 5 March 2014, 11:30-13:30, Room N106
The workshop provided an overview of SESAR Demonstration activities, as well as showcase a number of projects that are currently underway. The workshop also outlined the planning for the RPAS Demonstration Projects and hear from several of the selected projects.
Workshop: Unpacking SESAR Solutions
Wednesday 5 March 2014, 13:45-16:00, Room N106
The workshop looked at the solutions that the SESAR programme is delivering for further development and deployment. The workshop also addressed the standardisation and regulatory implications and explained how the solutions will be considered as part of the deployment process.
Info session: Call for Large Scale Demonstrations
Wednesday 5 March 2014, 16:15 – 17:15, Room N106
The aim of this info session was to provide participants with an overview of the on-going Call for Proposal on SESAR Large Scale Demonstration Activities. The session provided the occasion for interested entities to ask any questions that they may have on the Call. The agenda was as follows:
16:15 – 16:20 Introduction - Alain Siebert, SESAR Joint Undertaking
16:20 – 16:35 Call on Large Scale Demonstration Activities - Oznur Uygur, SESAR Joint Undertaking
16:35 – 17:15 Q&A session - Carlo Borghini, SESAR Joint Undertaking, Moderator
Demo: Initial 4D Trajectory Management
Tuesday 4 March, 16:30-18:30
Wednesday 5 March 2014, 10:30-12:30
Wednesday 5 March 2014, 14:30-16:30
Initial 4-D trajectory management combines conventional three-dimensional data with time estimates computed by aircraft. Blended together, this data pinpoints aircraft positions accurately and predictably. The demo featured a synchronised video playback of recent i4D flight trials and participants heard from some of the key actors involved in developing this novel approach to trajectory management.
The SESAR Stand
On SESAR stand (508), visitors could peruse the latest publications, speak with representatives from the SESAR Joint Undertaking and test their knowledge about SESAR in return for a chance to win some coveted goodies. The stand also featured a demo of IMPACT, a software developed within the SESAR programme that evaluates the environmental impact (noise, fuel, emission, air quality) of SESAR operations. The tool allows projects to compare their environmental performance data to various baselines.
