wins ATC Maastricht 2005 Award for Innovation.
The Aerospace Engineering (AE) developed application named
has been awarded the Annual
Air Traffic Control (ATC) 2005 Maastricht Awards Innovation Award.
The ATC awards were sponsored by
Jane's Airport Review and were selected by a panel of judges made up
of senior representatives from the FAA, EUROCONTROL, CANSO, IATA and
System, developed by AE for ATH Group (ATH), is an
en-route, self-metering aircraft time sequencing system.
uses a computer-based decision process to optimize aircraft traffic
flows in real-time, generating a solution around the airlines
business needs and operational requirements.
Key features of Attila
™ are its sophisticated multi-parameter
decision engine that allows full consideration of aircraft operator
priorities in the establishment of an optimized air traffic flow,
the full involvement of the aircraft pilot as a goal seeking agent
in the achievement of an optimized plan, and an architecture that
facilitates centralized and low cost deployment.
The proven benefits of the system include:
Approximately 100 - 200 M savings per airport,
per airline for major airports
Reduced holding and low altitude flying time
Reduced and more predictable block time
On-time performance improved by more than 5%
Reduced air space complexity with fewer conflicts
Reduced airport noise and pollution
has been demonstrated to deliver significant benefit in an operational
environment. The system has under gone field trials at the
St. Louis-Lambert International Airport and in Frankfurt. ATC
interoperability as well as pilot compliance has been successfully
demonstrated. Separate simulations undertaken by ATH Group show
that the system can change the outcome of any given arrival sequence by
applying a goal function that describes an improved business situation.
ITT Industries (ITT) and ATH Group have teamed to market
this Aerospace Engineering developed technology to the U.S.
government. As part of this effort, ITT and ATH have a
demonstration suite for
at ITT offices in Washington DC.
