A-SMGCS Testing of operational procedures by simulation

Objective

The ATOPS project has been set up to reach several objectives. These are :

1.
%
The first objective, related to the definition of operational procedures will be
met by :
£ defining a list of ATC procedures based on the use of an A-SMGCS
£ testing a limited number of these procedures in a simulated busy airport environment (such as Heathrow, Schiphol),
£ identifying benefits arising from the use of such procedures.

The second objective, related to performance parameters, will be met by carrying out tests of some new A-SMGCS based operational procedures in such a way that data can be derived and used in the process of defining sub-systems and equipment performance parameters.

The third objective, related to the validation of simulation means, will be met by demonstrating through test scenarios similarities between the simulated and real world operations.

The fourth objective, providing a baseline for the 5th FWP, will be met by the preparation of a report outlining testing that could be usefully performed in the context of the 5th FWP.

The last objective, consulting and/or informing all interested parties, will be met by setting up internal consultations and two forums. Forum 1 is a consultation forum and will be set up prior to the start of the simulation to consult end users and Forum 2 is a dissemination forum to inform end-users, equipment providers and regulatory authorities on the results of the simulation.
