ASAS TN2 fourth workshop

"ASAS: a reality check"

held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 23rd - 25th April 2007

at the NLR (Anthony Fokkerweg 2, 1059 CM Amsterdam)

The main objective of the Airborne Separation Assistance System Thematic Network 2 (ASAS-TN2) is to accelerate the application of ASAS and Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) operations in European airspace taking into account global applicability in order to increase airspace capacity and safety.

“ADS-B implementation is progressing in various parts of the world (i.e. Australia). What will it deliver and what are the deployment plans? Beyond these initial steps, both Europe and the US are now at critical points in the definition of their future ATM Concepts, in respectively SESAR an NGATS. What is the role envisaged for ADS-B and ASAS in those concepts? What will it take for ASAS and ADS-B to fulfil the future expectations? The fourth ASAS-TN2 workshop will address those issues and present an update of ASAS/ADS-B related activities.”

The workshop is in the form of four sessions of presentations, each followed by a period of debate on key issues raised. The presentations and debate are recorded in the form of a workshop report to deliver key messages to the Air Traffic Management (ATM) community.

Day 1: Monday April 23 PM

Chair: Tony Henley (BAE Systems)/Christos Rekkas (EUROCONTROL HQ) - Secretary: Chris Shaw (EUROCONTROL EEC)

This session will report on what has happened in the ASAS domain since the last workshop six months ago. It will provide an update on global ASAS activities, including the European ADS-B implementation and validation programme, CASCADE.

Day2: Tuesday April 24

08:45 – 08:55 overview of the agenda

Session 2: ASAS in future European and US ATM concepts
Chair: Peter Howlett (Thales Air Systems) - Secretary: Soren Wikerud (LFV)

This session will provide an overview of the future concepts of operations developed by SESAR in Europe and NGATS/NextGen in the USA and will highlight the position of ASAS applications in these two major programmes.
Both programmes are reportedly including ADS-B and some ASAS applications in their future concepts of operations. This session will be an opportunity to find out more precisely how ADS-B and ASAS fit into the medium and long term visions formulated on either side of the Atlantic Ocean.

08:55 – 09:00 Introduction: session leaders
09:00 – 09:20 ASAS in SESAR Concept: Andy Barff (EUROCONTROL EEC)

Session 3: ASSTAR User Forum
Chair: Jean-Marc Loscos (DSNA) - secretary: Nico de Gelder (NLR)

The aim of the ASSTAR project is to research the operational and safety aspects of selected ASAS Package 2 applications in order that the potential benefits may be realised by airspace users in the 2010 timeframe and beyond. Applications in the project include advanced Crossing and Passing applications and Oceanic In-Trail applications.

The key objective of the second ASSTAR User Forum is to disseminate project results, findings, recommendations and lesson learnt, including operational procedures, fast-time simulations, real-time simulations, system architecture, benefits and safety results, and to recommend the optimal use of the project results.
