Ease of Understanding the Concept Increasing traffic demands Unlikely to be met by existing ATM systems Need for advanced assistance Change in controller philosophy New relationship between air and ground systems

Unlikely to be met by existing ATM systems

Need for advanced assistance

Change in controller philosophy

New relationship between air and ground systems

Initial Concerns Safety? Workload? Efficiency?

Perceived Plusses Remarkable increase in traffic handling ability Reduced RTF workload Planning much easier and relaxed Profiles more easily accommodated Increasing 4D proportion means consequent improvement in accommodating non-equipped aircraft Stripless environment gives more ‘looking at radar’ time

Remarkable increase in traffic handling ability

Reduced RTF workload

Planning much easier and relaxed

Profiles more easily accommodated

Increasing 4D proportion means consequent improvement in accommodating non-equipped aircraft

Stripless environment gives more ‘looking at radar’ time

ATCO Concerns Robustness of system What happens if system fails? Uncertainty on who was responsible for and who was actually resolving conflictions Is solution efficient ? Ease of understanding conflictions

Robustness of system

What happens if system fails?

Uncertainty on who was responsible for and who was actually resolving conflictions

Is solution efficient ?

Ease of understanding conflictions

The Future ? Effectiveness in busy or complex airspace Computer power requirements Controller acceptance Transition to implementation System responsibility issues Value of programme to date Need for further research

Some ATCO Comments “ It is difficult to imagine, that in the core part of europe, all these flights will appear in your sector from all different directions, at different speeds and descending and already be arranged into an efficient sequence - certainly not in my lifetime!!” “ I couldn’t do this without the computer - I just hope it doesn’t hiccup!” “ It was remarkable to find that, at 45 years of age and having not been an operational ATCO for 5 years, they gave me 2 days’ training, to carry out 2 people’s jobs at traffic levels which were at one-and-a-half times today’s peak , and yet I was only moderately busy!”
