Environmentally Friendlt Airport ATM Stytems

Lead Participant: Thales UK Limited


National Air Traffic Services (NATS) has forecast that UK air traffic will increase by 45% by 2015. This is expected to have a major environmental impact at, and in the vicinity of airports. While there are a number of European wide initiatives to address the technical and operational impacts associated with such growth, our programme is aimed at mitigating the environmental impacts in this sensitive area. It is a key component of a larger, medium term, collaborative programme of applied research in the Air Traffic Management (ATM) domain. It is derived from the Aerospace Innovation and Growth Team (AeIGT), the objective of which is to define and implement a National Aerospace Technology Strategy. Outputs from the proposed ATM programme will contribute to the development of technologies and operational practices to deliver measurable environmental benefits.
