Integrated Surface Management (SESAR PJ 03a SUMO)

Integrated Surface Management (SESAR PJ 03a SUMO)

The future European ATM system relies on full integration of airports as nodes into the network. In this context, the integrated surface management project (PJ.03a) aims to identify and validate operational and technological solutions aiming at enhancing airport operations.

One of the main objectives is to improve the predictability of ground operations in all weather conditions. The implementation of collaborative decision making process involving all relevant stakeholders will ensure an optimisation of airport resources allocation. This feature will rely on enhanced integration between aircraft and ground systems which is expected to be achieved through the full implementation of the SWIM concept

SINTEF will contribute with methods and software for dynamic (continuous), deconflicting, surface routing and AGL-based guidance, the SINTEF ATC Optimisation Library (MADMAN) and the SINTEF ATC Guiding Server.
