ASLOGIC PARTICIPATES IN TWO PROJECTS IN EUROPE TO IMPROVE AIR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT

01/05/2017

The spin-off of the UAB Research Park participates in AGENT and PARTAKE, two projects that propose to develop new intelligent systems of European air traffic management, that will allow to improve the efficiency of the flow of aircraft, minimizing the conflicts that can generate. The forecast anticipates to reach 17 million flights a year in 2030, with daily peaks of 50,000. 

  

Europe, with more than 35,000 flights a day, has one of the busiest airspace in the world. In 2010, the European air traffic management system (ATM) controlled about 9.5 million flights and the forecast anticipates to reach 17 million flights in 2030, with daily peaks of 50,000 flights. 

 

The European Union has chosen to make this management system more efficient and able to absorb the planned increase in traffic, with the SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) research funding program. Two projects that have been put in place, AGENT and PARTAKE, are led by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and have the participation of Aslogic, aim to develop tools based on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to facilitate Safer and more efficient airspace management. 

 

The AGENT (Adaptive Self-Governed Aerial Ecosystem by Negotiated Traffic) project incorporates the intensive use of ICT to equip aircraft with greater capacity for conflict resolution. The project proposes a new system to manage the trajectories of airplanes, through a tool to support air traffic controllers and pilots in situations of conflict between aircraft that offers them the possibility to choose the best solution of change of trajectory Considering the particular characteristics of each conflict. 

 

The PARTAKE project will develop a tool that detects the optimal take-off moment for each aircraft to improve the efficiency of aircraft traffic. The system will help decision-making to prioritize the take-off of aircraft that have already completed their stopover and have the corresponding permit, taking into account not only information about the airport - state of runways and taxiways - but also The impact of the trajectory with the rest of scheduled flights in the airspace. This way, it is tried to minimize the habitual interventions of the controllers in the route to preserve the separation between aircraft. 

 

The system is part of a space-time analysis of flight plans requested by airlines, identifies those areas of the airspace where demand exceeds capacity and adjusts take-off times. 

 

In addition to the Department of Telecommunication and Systems Engineering of the UAB and Aslogic, the projects have the participation of the University of Cranfield (United Kingdom), and the Technical University of Braunschweig (Germany) in the case of the project AGENT, and the School National Civil Aviation (France) in PARTAKE.
