Airbus ProSky is dedicated to improving the overall performance and efficiency of
global Air Traffic Management (ATM). Airbus ProSky is comprised of recognised subject
matter experts with unique performance improvement capabilities that benefit Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP), airlines and airports. Offering the innovative capabilities of Metron Aviation, Quovadis and ATRiCS, Airbus ProSky provides intelligent ATM components that maximise efficiency, capacity and environmental sustainability.
Airbus ProSky delivers groundbreaking ATM research and development, Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM), Performance Based Navigation (PBN) and Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) solutions for the world’s leading organizations including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), EUROCONTROL, Airservices Australia, Delta Air Lines, ATMB China, Southwest, ATNS South Africa, Dubai International Airport, Frankfurt Airport, DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung and many more.
Airbus ProSky provides a comprehensive set of ATM services for a performancebased and benefit driven approach of ATM modernisation. Gate-to-gate optimisation across all phases of flight is addressed through a multi-dimensional approach, including operational, technical, financial and human issues.
Airbus ProSky’s team of ATM engineers and Subject Matter Experts (SME) collaborate on
multiple initiatives to accelerate and support the implementation of SESAR in Europe. Airbus isa member of the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU), a unique private-public
partnership that is modernising ATM and fully supports the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO) Aviation System Block Upgrades and global ATM modernisation
and harmonisation. Through this dedication, Airbus ProSky ensures that expertise both within Airbus and the wider EADS group are used to contribute to the advancement
of SESAR with multiple initiatives, including Initial-4D (I-4D), Atlantic Interoperability
Initiative to Reduce Emissions (AIRE) and many more.
Airbus ProSky is actively contributing across NextGen operational areas and fully mobilising the resources of subsidiary Metron Aviation, one of the FAA’s prime
contractors on NextGen, as well as the entire Airbus family and the wider EADS group.
Airbus ProSky is committed to the FAA and its advancement of NextGen to dramatically
improve air transportation capacity, efficiency and environmental sustainability.
Air Traffic Flow Management
Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) is the science of improving aviation operations by using up-to-date flight information to anticipate future traffic demand, and strategically controlling aggregate flows of flights to keep demand within safe and manageable bounds. Airbus ProSky, in partnership with Airbus ProSky Alliance member, Metron Aviation, offer an integrated suite of ATFM solutions known as Metron Harmony.
Individual routing and electronic input of controller intentions allows for the detection of conformance failures. In combination with dynamic control of airfield ground lights, a level of automation is achieved that has demonstrated to reduce controller workload and to improve situational awareness of pilots. Airbus ProSky, in partnership with Airbus ProSky Alliance Member, ATRiCS, offers a Surface Manager (SMAN) that integrates the existing surveillance and lighting infrastructure at an airport to a truly coherent surface movement management system.
Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) allows for the optimisation of the procedure through the aircraft navigation performance, without the need for ground aids. The global aviation industry is facing significant challenges regarding ecoefficiency and airspace capacity optimisation. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) encourages worldwide PBN implementation by 2016 to address these operational needs. Airbus ProSky and Airbus ProSky Alliance member, Quovadis, offers turn-key solutions for implementation of this innovative and effective process.
