TP Meteoserver

The Trajectory Predictor (TP) functionality calculates the four-dimensional flight path of an individual flight and is used by air traffic control to make a planning for inbound traffic. The accuracy of its calculations is strongly influenced by the quality of meteorological data.  The TP Meteoserver project aims to develop an optimal meteorological service for air […]

CROS Pilot 5A (Night arrivals for runway 18R)

During night times, weather permitting, inbound traffic from the north arrives at the Polderbaan (runway 18R) and performs the final approach along fixed routes and specific procedures. This procedure causes a fair amount of annoyance. This CROS Pilot 5 project investigates the possible reduction of noise annoyance north of Schiphol when flying a different approach […]

HF in Future ATM

The world of Air Traffic Management is on the threshold of major changes. Europe and the United States have launched large-scale innovation programmes like SESAR and NextGen. The implementation of new technologies, operational concepts and collaborative decision making processes have to improve the efficiency of the Air Traffic Management (ATM) system. These developments will have […]

Micro climate project: reducing noise annoyance near Rijsenhout

Departing traffic from the “Kaagbaan” (RWY 24) or “Zwanenburgbaan” (RWY 18C) causes noise annoyance when overflying Rijsenhout. This seems to be caused by traffic that deviates from the planned departure route. The project Micro climate Rijsenhout researches the cause of these deviations and possible measures to reduce noise annoyance in Rijsenhout.

Airborne Separation Assistance Systems (ASAS)

  Airborne Separation Assistance Systems (ASAS) provide information to the cockpit about the position of surrounding traffic. In the future this may enable the flight crew to take over some of the separation tasks of air traffic controllers. The ASAS project investigates which of these systems might be beneficial for operations at Schiphol.

NOC-rate vs. Sustainability

The organisations KLM, Schiphol and LVNL have their own framework and definitions for measuring the quality of the airport operations. Each party will, based on their own framework, make operational decisions. NOC-rate and Sustainability are two indicators of the quality of the airport product, but has a different meaning to the parties involved. The objective […]
