Airspace User supporting Demonstrations of Integrated Airport Operations

Project description

A novel mapping tool in the crew's electronic flight bag enhances situational awareness

Improving the situational awareness of flight crews regarding conditions on the ground can have a significant impact on safety, efficiency and the environment. The so-called electronic flight bags have become quite common since the widespread commercialisation of tablets and other smart devices. They can replace many paper-based procedures and forms and can also display a variety of data or perform calculations related to aircraft performance or ground operations. The EU-funded AUDIO project will integrate a 'Connected Moving Map' application showing the traffic situation at the airport and providing a visual of taxi routing information. The technology should help the flight crew better predict departure sequence, enhance awareness of potential safety issues during taxi phase, keep pilots in synch with controllers for smoother collaboration and enhance the efficiency of surface routing to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
