This proposal is based on the innovation of the operational framework rather that on the development of new technologies. Emphasis is placed on obtaining the maximum synergies between locally available systems and the overall European framework, thus optimising the overall efficiency of the system. Special attention will be placed on guaranteeing the accessibility and equity of the proposed airspace structure.
The project will define and validate (using a combination of fast-time and human-in-the-loop simulations) a set of Operational Concept Scenarios that fully use OCD principles to arrange the major traffic flows and patterns using pre-defined routes, to ensure that aircraft fly more safely and more frequently along a 'SSuper Highway'. The traffic structure will be within the Single European Sky functional blocks of airspace and will have two essential components: entries/exits onto the super highway (junctions) and lanes.
