Develop and validate concepts, procedures and tools to enable the flexible and dynamic application of wake vortex separations
Investigate the use of revised wake vortex weight categories reflecting the current fleet mix
Develop new wake vortex categories using additional parameters such as wing-span, wing design and landing speed
Evaluate use of pair wise wake vortex spacing based on precise knowledge of generator and follower characteristics
Evaluate use of dynamic pair wise wake vortex spacing taking into account the prevailing meteorological conditions
Definition, analysis and validation of the principles, requirements and systems for the above operational concepts to be implemented in a safe and efficient way enabling the accurate prediction and/or real-time detection of wake vortex, and
Build and validate prototypes with the goal to define how information related to wake vortex can be processed and used to optimize runway throughput.
