Traffic Complexity Management
TCM has been developed for LOCAL FLOW MANAGER as the main tool helping ATCO load forecasting and get the system ready for more efficient provision of Air Traffic Services. TCM can be fed with either NM or local FDPS data and based on Flight Plan data and capacity figures processing computes ATCO load forecast in individual logical sectors respecting current sectorization and identifies traffic demands limits.
Based on FPL and flight data provides the overview of sector loads with respect to current sector configuration – sectorization.
Identifies traffic figures expected on individual logical sectors and provides the graphical presentation of the overloading limits.
Provides the list of the flights in question and allows to perform “WHAT IF” flights re-organization to solve the overloading.
Allows the “WHAT IF” re-sectorization - possibility to create non-existing sector configuration to simulate load forecasting to design a new sector configuration.
Takes into account the adjacent ACC sectors traffic figures in terms not to loading them by TCM traffic adjustments which may lead to the traffic problems in the neighbourhood.
TCM identifies unanticipated traffic (so called “Intruders”) – the flights which because of any reasons do not cope with planned flight trajectory. These flights should be handled in different way with lower priority.
User customization of sector confgurations.
User can defne sector time span to forecast ATCO load.
Display of Traffic expected in chosen time period.
The monitoring of WHAT IF effect on Traffic shifting in time and/or level.
The capability of traffic filtering.
