Automated Assistance to Controller for Surface Movement Planning and Routing
This A-SMGCS-based route planning functionality allows controllers to graphically edit routes and compute estimated taxi times. Specifically, the functionality provides controllers with airport layout descriptions, flight plan information (e.g. aircraft type, destination stand), known operational constraints (e.g. closed taxiways) and Collaborative Decision Making
(CDM) data (e.g. Target Start-Up Approval Time -TSAT), which allows them to create operationally realistic taxi routes for mobile vehicles under air traffic control (ATC).
