Amsterdam 6 March 2012 Presented by Philippe PELLERIN Experimental Test Pilot – Airbus SESAR JU– Initial 4D “On time !” Initial 4D Operation Once the A/C enters the ATC arrival horizon, at least 40' before landing: 1. ATC uplinks to A/C the route clearance to follow down to runway - (via CPDLC). 2. Crew loads the route clearance into the FMS and updates FMS winds and temperatures data (via AOC datalink function) A/C downlink of 4D predicted trajectory (ADS-C) SESAR – Initial 4D On time ! Amsterdam 6 March 2012 AOC datalink function). A/C downlink of 4D predicted trajectory (ADS-C). 3. ATC requests Reliable RTA interval for merge point (via ADS-C). A/C downlinks Reliable RTA interval (via ADS-C). 4. ATC uplinks feasible RTA. 5. Crew inserts RTA in FMS as active data. A/C downlinks A/C 4D predicted trajectory (via ADS-C). 6. 4D trajectory agreed by crew and ATC Descent can be flown in full managed.

Necessary evolutions of the FMS for I4D  Improved RTA in descent:  Accuracy +/- 10s with 95% reliability. I d th d li SESAR – Initial 4D On time ! Amsterdam 6 March 2012  Improved weather modeling:  10 winds in descent.  10 temperatures in descent.  Reliable RTA interval function:  Available onboard for any waypoint (RTA page).  Reliable RTA interval reported through ADS-C. © AIRBUS Operations S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.  Datalink:  CPDLC: new RTA messages (1 sec resolution + tolerance value).  ADS-C: downlink of the 4D trajectory.

SESAR – Initial 4D On time ! Amsterdam 6 March 2012 • CPDLC • Uplinked routes and time constraints processed correctly. • ADS-C • Provision of airborne data (trajectory predictions and ETA window) to the ground worked all ok. • Worth noting that for the first time, ADSC was routed via ATN i t d f ACARS © AIRBUS Operations S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document. ATN instead of ACARS • Weather • Meteo updates consistently processed by crew. Page 13 SESAR – Initial 4D On time ! Amsterdam 6 March 2012 Expected benefits • Thanks to management through RTA, CTOT could be discarded • Less delays on ground • More flexibility for airlines • Better management of the arrivals • No more holdings • Less fuel burn • Less delays • Possibility to fly close-to-CDA descents © AIRBUS Operations S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document. Page 14 • Less noise
