Led by MUAC (2017 - 2019)
ACC/UAC : Maastricht
Project descriptionAs part of the SESAR2020 projects linked to the new ADS-C (i.e. PJ18 for validations and PJ31 for live demonstrations) industry will provide a prototype compliant with latest ATN-Baseline 2 Data Link standard of March 2016. This includes the downlink of e.g. the on-board planned trajectory (known as the Extended Projected Profile - EPP). This prototype development will be provided as in-kind contribution by industry to PJ18 & PJ31 in support of further validations in the period 2017-2019.
Under PJ31 MUAC strives for providing the downlinked EPP to a sub-set of controllers in pre-operational fashion. These ATCOs will then have the option to display the EPP and get a discrepancy indication when the downlinked airborne trajectory is not equal to the FDPS flight plan.
