"The FLIP project aims at developing and validating a Flight Management System (FMS) test bench compatible set of tools able to provide and consult actual airlines flight plans databases, and to inject into such FMS equipment under test specific flight plans representative of the dedicated robustness scenario to be validated. This work will participate to the maturation of the green functions of the FMS which should allow an optimization of the flights trajectories in view for example of reducing the fuel consumption and noise nuisance generated by the aircraft.
To do so, an extensive specification work will be undertaken to define the tools and the overall system architecture. This task will be followed by the development in parallel of several tools: a FIXM compliant database and its associated update process, a user-friendly Human-Machine Interface HMI, and a core-business module managing the communication (AOC A702 and industrial protocols) between the FMS test bench, the database and the HMI. Finally, integration and validation tests with the Topic Manager will be carried out to ensure that the software modules meet the requirements specified.
The consortium will bring its expertise in big software application development - efficient management of a database with a large number of instances, multi-criteria queries in the database, batch processing, GUI design and graphical displays - and in aeronautical data management technology like WXXM/AIXM/FIXM thanks to participation in SESAR, OGC and Clean Sky projects."
