Enhanced Oceanic Operations
The goal of this project is to develop and demonstrate new operational
systems to increase the efficiency of oceanic operations:
The project focuses on the development of the In Trail Climb/Descend
Procedure, which is on the first applications of ASAS
(airborne separation assurance) technology. They key challenge is to
demonstrate an equivalent level of safety to today's operations,
via traditional techniques and formal methods
- Enable pilots to make trajectory changes that save fuel.
- Current oceanic trajectories are fixed altitude.
