Optimising the performance of the European ATM network
The award-winning SESAR exploratory research project, COCTA, developed an innovative framework to improve efficiency of air navigation services by better coordination of capacity and demand management. Building on COCTA’s achievements, the EU-funded CADENZA project will incorporate advanced demand-capacity balancing mechanisms to develop a detailed trajectory broker concept for the European network. The aim is to balance capacity and demand through a coordinated capacity provision process and collaborative trajectory management (including a novel trajectory charging scheme). By covering all areas of capacity provision and all temporal levels, the project aims to achieve significant improvements in cost-efficiency as well as positive impacts on other key performance indicators, especially delays. Mathematical models and real-world trajectory data will be used to validate this new concept.
