Joint Fifth ASAS-TN2 Workshop and Second FLYSAFE Forum

“Equipping for ASAS: Ground and Airborne Industries”

17th to 19th September 2007, Hotel Mercure Atria, Toulouse

This workshop is co-organised by the ASAS TN2 and the FLYSAFE projects.

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.

As air traffic is expected to triple within the next 20 years. FLYSAFE addresses the need for new systems and solutions to increase air traffic safety in this context. It focuses particularly on the areas identified as the main causes of accidents around the world: loss of control, controlled flight into terrain, and approach and landing. FLYSAFE will address the three main hazards: atmospheric conditions, traffic, and terrain by providing pilots with new systems allowing them to make the right decision at all times.

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 17th September:

13:00 - 13:30 - Session 0 – Welcomes and setting the scene

ASAS-TN2 welcome Phil Hogge, ASAS-TN2 event Chairman

Thales welcome Gil Michielin, Vice President and General Manager of Thales Commercial Aircraft Solutions

European Commission welcome

13:30 - 17:30 - Session 1 - Progress and status of worldwide ADS-B/ASAS implementation and evolving airborne separation standards.

Chair: Peter Howlett (Thales), Secretary: Nico de Gelder (NLR)
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 concerning implementation, standardisation and validation.

The session will also report on research into airborne separation criteria for a number of ASAS applications, including safety studies.

Day 2 – Tuesday 18th September
Session 2: ASAS in future European and US ATM concepts

Chair: Jean-Claude Richard (Thales Avionics) Secretary: Giorgio Matrella (ENAV)
This session will focus precisely on how ASAS fits into the SESAR and NextGen operational concepts.
The following discussions will enable exploration and analysis of the implications of both concepts.

Chair: Marc Fabreguettes (THALES Avionics); Wim Huson, (Use2Aces), Secretary: Fraser McGibbon (BAE Systems)
This session will give a broad overview of the FLYSAFE project, dealing with the airborne Next Generation Integrated Surveillance System. The NGISS is enhanced by a number of ground-based advanced Weather Information Management Systems. The high impact of weather on specific ASAS applications will be discussed, especially on ASPA-S&M and on ATSA-SURF. Futhermore some of the FLYSAFE Traffic Part Task Evaluation results will be presented.

Evening social event: Hôtel d’Assézat

Day 3 – Wednesday 19th September 
Session 4: Ground and Airborne industry progress
Chair : Pierre Gayraud (Thales Avionics) Secretary : Tony Henley (BAE Systems)
This session will focus on the air and ground equipment required to support ASAS applications. It will provide the views of airframe manufacturers, avionics manufacturers and ground equipment providers. Lessons learnt from current development and deployment activities as well as views on future ASAS applications will be presented.
