AUTOMATED AIR TRAFFIC PLANNING SYSTEM (AATPS)

Russian Federation Unified Air Traffic Management Systems AATPS software is intended for:

  • Air traffic flow planning and management automation at all levels;

  • Air traffic planning operator decision making intelligent support.

Table 1. Air traffic flow planning system purpose.

Purpose

Solutions

Air Traffic Control (ATC) System assistance

Operator overload prevention

Balanced airspace use support

Minimization of airlines losses due to limited ATC system capacity

Optimization of ATC system resource usage

Minimization of losses due to overload (delays, route extension, non-optimum echelons)

AATPS software:


 

Airspace use estimation and analysis software as air traffic planning and air traffic flow management (ATFM) system support elements

Purpose Air traffic requirements and air traffic management capacity comparison.

ATFM tasks include ATFM data support, operational and analytical tasks:

  • air traffic requirements data acquisition;

  • comparison of air traffic requirements and ATC capacity;

  • air traffic flow regulation in coordination with airspace users;

  • conflict-free flight plan compilation and distribution over ATC system;

  • flight plan implementation and solution control.

Planning stages and types:

24-hour flight plan:

aspvd02

ATC system capacity:

  • ATC sector operator capacity;

  • Separation standards:

    • along track;
    • vertical;
    • time.

ATC sectors and airspace structural elements (airports, air route points and sections, ATC areas) traffic load calculation software is used for dynamic calculation of constant change of flight data and airspace structure data.

Calculations are carried out for:

  • Current planning several hours ahead;

  • 24-hour planning a day to come;

  • Preliminary planning a year ahead;

  • Actual data analysis - as new data becomes available; stored in data base.

aspvd05

Flight planner tools for RF airspace use analysis:

  • ATC sectors, ATC areas, airports, air route points and sections traffic plotting on map charts:

aspvd06

  • Hourly and 20-min traffic charts of RF ATC sectors, airports, ATC areas:

aspvd07

  • ATC sector hourly and 20-min traffic charts:

aspvd08

Selected sector 24-hour traffic as compared to capacity standards:

  • Along the x-axis 24 hours with one hour intervals;

  • Along the y-axis RC (regional center) sector traffic load during the indicated 24 hours:

    • Preplanned element hourly traffic load;

    • Sector acceptable, maximum permissible and threshold capacity values.

Classification by:

  • traffic;

  • priority;

  • type of flight (regular, charter);

  • direction (West East, East West);

  • data status (repetitive flight plan (RFP), preliminary flight plan (PFP), flight plan (FP)).

aspvd09

  • lists of flights constituting sector traffic in a given time interval:

aspvd10

  • ATC sector traffic cyclogram:

aspvd11

  • sector air traffic flow analysis tool:

aspvd12

  • analysis tools for a single flight airspace use:

    • flight route plotting on the map chart;

    • flight profile;

    • list of overflown ATC sectors.

aspvd13

Flight replanning proposal generation tools flight departure time change, alternative route choice, new 4D route generation.

aspvd14

Air traffic flow management support aids:

  • 24-hour air traffic flow management by flight delay (CASA type) in response to predicted specified capacity overrun in ATC sectors;

  • flow rerouting to avoid overloaded or restricted airspace areas;

  • dynamic sectorization in response to air traffic intensity change.

aspvd15

For airspace actual use analysis statistical data files for a given airspace element traffic load are generated:

Airspace use restrictions development, coordination and analysis software

Designed for:

  • ATC controller work automation as related to time mode development and matching;

  • Information support of operational planning service manager work involving the analysis of airspace use restrictions data.

aspvd18

 

Statistics software

Allows to carry out:

  • RF airspace actual air traffic quantitative parameter calculation and analysis;

  • preparation, visualization, editing and printing of statistics reports on quantitative characteristics of RF airspace elements and aircraft flows in the form of tables, diagrams and map charts.
