Alenia Aermacchi in the Single European Sky ATM Research

  1. 1. Alenia Aermacchi in the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR): the aircraft manufacturer challenges Ermanno Girardelli SESAR Program Manager – Alenia Aermacchi Turin, October 23rd, 2013
  2. 2. The future Single European Sky Single European Sky initiative for the modernization of the European airspace Rationale • Fragmentation of the airspace • Absence of common standards • Obsolescence of current ATM infrastructure/assets • Air Traffic Increase forecast Features of the new system • Ability to accommodate more air traffic flow • Guarantee an adequate environmental sustainability • Increase the safety • Reduce the air traffic management costs 2
  3. 3. Fragmentation of the airspace 3
  4. 4. The Airspace: a resource for different users Different users with different needs in terms of operations and systems/technologies. Airliners Business Aviation General Aviation Military Aircraft Unmanned Aircraft Rotorcraft The challenge is to accomodate the aircraft diversity with a limited impact to the overall system performance. The aircraft diversity is expected to increase in the future years (unmanned). 4
  5. 5. From the Single European Sky to SESAR Derived from needs of society and airspace users Design Goals for scalable future capability: Capacity: handle 3 times traffic Safety: factor 10 Environment: - 10% effects per flight Costs to airspace users: - 50% Security Interoperability Participation SESAR is the technological arm of SES Access and Equity Safety Environmental Sustainability Cost Effectiveness Predictability Flexibility Capacity Efficiency 5
  6. 6. The SESAR approach done ongoing In preparation Definition Phase (2004-2007) has defined the ATM target concept including the different operational and technological steps to be taken, the priorities in the modernisation programmes and the operational implementation plans. Development Phase (2007-2016), will: develop and validate new ATM operational concepts and procedures in accordance with the ATM master plan; develop and validate new equipment, systems and/or standards ensuring a convergence towards a single ATM system in Europe and globally interoperable. The Deployment Phase (2014-2020) will consist in the large scale production and implementation of the new European ATM infrastructure at high performance 6

  8. 8. Alenia Aermacchi in SESAR • • Alenia Aermacchi is participating to the SESAR development phase since its beginning. Alenia is active in several areas of the project but the focus in on the integration of the SESAR solutions on regional and military aircraft. Civil projects: • Airborne Initial 4D trajectory management • Airborne Separation Assistance System • Airport Surface Activities • Advanced Navigation Systems • Flexible Communication Avionics 8
  9. 9. Alenia Aermacchi in SESAR Mission and Business Trajectory Management interoperability project Capability to share navigation data for business and mission trajectory interoperability 4D ADS-B 4D Civil datalink ADS-B ADS-B IN/OUT for Military project Capability to transmit/ receive a/c data for airborne separation assurance scope Link-16 (ground part) Civil-Military Data Link Interoperability project Capability to connect military aircraft in ATM Network through a ground gateway able to share with civil aircraft only the no sensible data Ground gateway & ATM infrastructure Business Trajectory Military datalink accommodation project Capability to connect military aircraft in ATM Network allowing to share with civil aircraft Trajectory data Mission Trajectory 9
  10. 10. Alenia Aermacchi in SESAR The future In the future years, UAS will contribute to increase the aircraft diversity. No regulations exist for UAS they can only fly in a segregated airspace. Regulations Operational Aspects Technological gaps Complementary Measures RPAS are a great opportunity for Europe, the European Commission is highly committed on the matter, i.e. to allow RPAS to fly in a nonsegregated airspace. In the “SESAR extension” the RPAS insertion will be a topic where the European Industry will have to focus their effort. 10
  11. 11. Conclusions The Single European Sky is a great opportunity for the community in Europe The EC recognizes the important success of SESAR in terms of results and is pushing for an extension of the programme to achieve the ATM master plan targets The challenge to cope with the airspace users diversity inside of the SES is perceived as a crucial factor for SES success More effort is needed to explore technologies and solutions for military, general and rotorcraft aviations, within and outside of SJU (e.g. EDA) Adequate effort need to be allocated inside and outside SESAR extension (e.g. EDA, ESA, …) to assure that the necessary activities for RPAS insertion into ATM out of segregated airspace will be pursued 11
