Eurocontrol route validating
In order to optimise low visibility operations using GBAS, it is recommended that users follow a “landing clearance line” which is closer to the runway than ILS holding points; this helps the controller determine when an aircraft has vacated the runway.
Together with the European Commission, Eurocontrol is a founding member of the SESAR Joint Undertaking, contributing €700 million to the development phase until end 2016.
EUROCONTROL was originally founded in 1960 as a civil-military organisation to deal with air traffic control for civil and military users in the upper airspace of its six founding European Member States.
EUROCONTROL has developed into a vital European repository of ATM excellence, both leading and supporting ATM improvements across Europe.
With regard to airports, GBAS advanced operations based on increased glide slopes and adaptive runway aiming point are expected to: GBAS provides a cost-efficient solution, since only one ground station is needed to service multiple approaches to all runways at an airport.
GBAS-optimised low visibility operations primarily address busy airports with capacity limitations.The content of the RAD shall be agreed between the Network Manager and the Operational Stakeholders through an appropriate cooperative decision making (CDM) process.
