Deployment of Air Traffic Services System iCAS: Implementation of a new ATS system at Karlsruhe UAC

Sites involved

ACC/UAC : Karlsruhe

Project description

DFS implementation of a new ATS system at Karlsruhe UAC which will enable DFS to deploy up to 18 so called Families as laid down by the SESAR Deployment Manager within the Deployment Programme 2015. It is a central Pilot Common Project (EU No. 716/2014) implementation project, planned for implementation under the framework of the SESAR Deployment Manager.
iCAS is envisaged to improve performance of KPAs Safety, Cost-Efficiency, Capacity and Environment by advanced controller support tools, easing problem solving, better conformance monitoring and easier standard handling of flights which leads to less workload per flight and more capacity, increased safety and improved cost-efficiency by higher productivity. More efficient problem solving and coordination will improve flight efficiency.
iCAS I belongs to the joint DFS/LVNL iCAS Programme which foresees the joint and common implementation of a new ATS system for all DFS and LVNL control centres. See also iCAS II
