Marc Kegelaers, CEO, Unifly, participates in Tuesday morning’s session, The Voice of UTM.

“Through processes and real-world demonstrations, we’re learning what the role is for each entity. “ How do we establish UTM standards? Richard Parker, founder and CEO, Altitude Angel, answered with his own question: “How do we take the very essence of quality and safety that’s baked

into an ANSP and apply that to the UTM world? The classic problem with standards is if we all have our own standard, we don’t have a standard.” The bottom line, Parker said, is that “it doesn’t matter to the people on this stage what the standard is, as long as

or the first time ever at World ATM Congress, a panel discussion didn’t include any air navigation service provider (ANSP) representatives, said Andrew Charlton, managing director, Aviation Advocacy, as he kicked off Tuesday morning’s “The Voice of UTM” panel. Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) traffic management (UTM) helps use the world’s airspace more efficiently, panelists agreed. But the challenge is enabling communication between human-related air traffic management (ATM) and technology-related UTM. Charlton asked the panelists, who all represent the UTM industry, a series of challenging questions. What does an ANSP need to know to understand UTM? Todd Donovan, vice president of digital aviation, Thales, said controlled airspace is just a construct. So while ANSPs are well positioned to provide services for people who want to use airspace, “we need to rethink what services need to be provided where.” One way to accomplish that is to “do it, not just talk about it,” said Ben Marcus, chairman and cofounder, AirMap.

ast summer’s ATM capacity and staff shortage was a wakeup call for European aviation, said Henrik Hololei, director-general for mobility and transport, European Commission, during Tuesday morning’s keynote session. “What is the saying: ‘Never waste a good crisis?’” he said. “This must not become the new normal.” In a wide-ranging speech and follow-up discussion with Jeff Poole, director general, Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO), Hololei outlined the steps he believes are necessary to manage the phenomenal air traffic growth in Europe and worldwide. Last year, for the first time ever, Hololei said the European network served more than 11 million flights. Global air traffic is also expected to double over the next 15 years, and that brings serious challenges, he said. First of all, there is geopolitical instability due to Brexit and potential trade wars, Hololei said. “Aviation is

Session Preview 14.00 – Nokia ATM Theatre Join Airbus UTM and ATCA for Today’s Fireside Chat, “Defining Future Skies: The Evolution of ATM and UTM” The next age of aviation is happening now. Our skies are increasingly supporting more types of aircraft, flying different types of missions. Almost every country around the world will need to update their traffic management infrastructure and deploy new technologies. The decisions we make now will set the pace for this evolution. In this panel, Dr. Isabel Del Pozo de Poza, Ur-

ban Air Mobility – Head of UTM for Airbus, and Peter F. Dumont, President and CEO of the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA), will share their insights into how they are approaching the digitisation of air traffic control and overcoming industry challenges. They will also provide lessons learned from other industries and best practices for how to get started.

and continue to play a key role in improving air traffic flow and efficiency with our best-in-class ATM solutions,” said Frank Köhne, managing director of Harris Orthogon GmbH. CAAS first procured the Orthogon AMAN solution in 2005 to support complex operations and optimise the arrival flow of traffic into Changi Airport. The system was upgraded to fully integrate into CAAS’ ATM system, LORADS III, in 2013. The DMAN system will augment Harris’ Orthogon Pre-Departure System already in use by CAAS. The integration of AMAN and DMAN will further optimise departure flow as it will now take into consideration arrival traffic.

Harris Corporation announced yesterday the award of a contract by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) for queue optimisation, demandcapacity management, traffic flow management, and visualisation solutions for departure and arrival traffic at Singapore Changi Airport. Harris’ Orthogon Arrival Manager (AMAN) / Departure Manager (DMAN) system will support flexible and efficient usage of runways and Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) and provide an enhanced AMAN/DMAN coupling in alignment to ICAO’s Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU Block 2). “Harris is pleased to extend its already strong partnership with CAAS

Harmonisation and modernisation require optimal IT control The modernization of ATC systems, in particular in combination with all harmonization programs, rises the degree of complex IT installations. n

Only the use of the respective systems can expand the airspace capacities, which are necessary to manage the growing number of flight movements. Where once analogue techniques were deployed, now data centres are used to provide us with all necessary information.

Therefore, an optimal system control is indispensable. Because installations have to be operated, administrated and properly protected in times of cyber security – and they should also provide reliable redundancies. Talk to the KVM ATC expert from G&D about your best possible IT infrastructure.

there is one. Everyone’s dead clear: We have to be safe. So at least we have common ground.” Marcus pointed out that “we already have millions of drones flying in the world in the absence of regulation. The longer we wait, the worse it gets. We can’t wait for years and years to develop the perfect standard.” UTM is not a product, he said; it is a set of services. UTM can provide critical foundational services like registration of drones, geofencing, and mechanisms for legitimate operators to fly into sensitive airspaces. What’s the role of counter UAS? The key, Donovan said, is to “inject the notion of trust” into things like drone registration. This is new to the airspace, he admitted. He believes there should be different levels of trust depending on who is flying the drone—for instance, an operator flying a drone over a field

would need to be less trustworthy than an operator in an urban environment near government buildings. Parker said it all comes down to identity and registration. “We have a duty to protect people’s personal information that we hold, but we also have to satisfy the air service provider’s request of who’s flying and where they’re flying.” Parker believes a digital exchange platform or single database could provide that. This is effectively a federated system. Is that how deconfliction will be handled? “You don’t federate with people you don’t trust,” Parker said. He envisions that centralised deconfliction service would probably be handled by ANSPs, which decide who gets to see what is flying in the airspace. But that is not possible with some federations of information sharing. In that case, Parker said, “the question is, should companies decide that, or should aviation?” Is it better that geofencing be built

in by manufacturers? Some manufacturers are producing geofencing capabilities that aren’t allowed in the countries where their drones are flying, Donovan said, which highlights the need for standards. That said, “there are a lot of different technologies to meet the performance requirements,” he said. “We need to strongly avoid saying: ‘It has to be this; it has to be that.’” Another issue, Parker said, is that some countries aren’t providing detailed geofencing information. “We don’t have a centralised resource we can look at where we can say: ‘Where can I fly my drone?’” Marcus pointed out that currently, humans needs to interpret the information a UTM is giving them. “I’m looking forward to the day when these things are autonomous and can just follow the rules on their own,” he said. The ultimate geofencing currently occurs in India, said Marc Kegelaers, CEO, Unifly. India’s No Permission, No Takeoff (NPNT) system requires that ev-

ery drone that wants to fly in the country has to connect to a central UTM system. Should drone operators be licensed? Licensing offers additional scrutiny, Donovan said, but manufacturers’ fundamental belief is that licensing shouldn’t be overly burdensome for the operator. He believes there need to be varying degrees of licensing depending on how and where a drone is operating. This also applies to operator training levels, Kegelaers said. “The reality is that in 10 years from now we’re not going to be having one pilot flying a drone,” Marcus added. Instead, there will be operations flying multiple drones, with limited human involvement. What is the business model for UTMs? Panelists said UTMs’ customers aren’t likely to be recreational drone operators, but rather commercial users who need services like routes and other factors.

Leonardo Presents a Vision of Secure and Efficient ATM Backed by Innovative Technology This week, Leonardo will showcase its most innovative ATM technologies and lay out their vision for a safer, more efficient ATM in the future. At the heart of Leonardo’s innovation in ATM is an understanding of urban mobility’s evolution, which was developed during the company’s years of leadership in the sector. Leonardo offers a range of innovative solutions to current and future needs, including a drone traffic management system, being co-developed with ENAV, which will integrate unmanned aircraft into commercial airspace. Another is LeadInSky, Leonardo’s own advanced ATC system. “With a scalable, flexible, and modular software architecture, LeadInSky can also integrate ADS-B data from Iridium Next satellites, improving the efficiency and safety of the routes,” said Davide Cioppi, head of traffic systems at Leonardo. “LeadInSky is also one of

the few systems on the market to offer virtualised air traffic control services. All this means that in the near future,

it will be possible to deliver air traffic management remotely from dedicated data centres, with services being

provided to tablets and smartphones – a cost-saving and environmentally friendly way of providing ‘air traffic management as a service.’” In Leonardo’s vision of future ATM, users will also be able to rely on the company’s digital remote towers. These will allow for the control of lowtraffic airports from remote operations centres, guaranteeing safety while optimising the use of manpower and maintenance. This week, Leonardo will highlight the factors that underpin a safe and effective ATM, such as the importance of cyber resilience. This is all part of the company’s "secure by design" approach, which includes the use of technologies based on artificial intelligence and blockchain, essential for protecting critical infrastructure like airports.

Indra Successfully Completes GBAS Flight Trials with Hong Kong CAD Indra successfully carried out Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS) flight trials at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) for the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) of Hong Kong. The flight trials, which took place during November and early December 2018, mark a new milestone in the path towards making GBAS the standard for landing systems. Indra used its NORMARC GBAS ground equipment for the flight trials, and the company was also responsible for providing flight procedures and ionospheric analysis, with IDS (Ingegneria Dei Sistemi) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) as subcontractors. Flight inspection verified that the GBAS performance met the intended operational requirements. Four required navigation performance (RNP) to GBAS landing system approach procedures were designed and validated by flight check to demon-

strate GBAS’ capability, with three of the procedures targeted for flight trials. Following the successful flight inspection and flight procedure validation, Cathay Pacific Boeing 747-8 freighters flew demonstrations with satisfactory results and positive feedback from pilots. “The flight trials have been successful, both technically and operationally, and show that it is realistic to implement GBAS in this region,” said Linda Lavik, product manager at Indra. “Indra believes GBAS will provide airports and airlines with significant cost, capacity, and environmental benefits. In this respect we regard the project in Hong Kong as important for the entire industry. We wish to thank CAD and Cathay Pacific for acting as pioneers, and for such a professional and efficient organisation of a challenging endeavor.” GBAS provides accurate and flexible navigational

guidance to aircraft, allowing steeper and shorter approaches. With potentially 48 approaches from one system and no sensitive areas, GBAS is expected to initially supplement conventional instrument landing systems (ILS) for resilience, improved efficiency, and operational flexibility. Indra’s NORMARC GBAS system is capable of guiding aircraft in CAT III low visibility conditions. Indra was the first company to start delivery of commercially operational satellite landing systems, used in Norway since 2007. “Indra is working proactively to get GBAS GAST D approved for Category III operations,” said Lavik. “After ICAO requirements for GAST D became effective in November 2018, we [became] confident an approval is realistic.”

Session Preview 14.20 – Tower Theatre (Room N101) Low-Level Airspace Surveillance: See What You Have Been Missing with Raytheon There is a blind spot in today’s air traffic and weather coverage data, due to legacy technology. A cost-effective option is lacking for high-resolution surveillance of low-level airspace from the ground up. The need to surveil airspace where manned and unmanned vehicles of tomorrow will operate requires a new vision: a low-cost, distributed constellation of phased array radars. This talk covers the importance of low-level surveillance and how reimagining radar systems as multi-function, short-range sensors can overcome the inconvenient truth of the Earth’s curvature, and mitigate the impact of buildings and topographical changes to address the evolving airspace needs.

Wednesday 13 March Free Education Europe For Aviation Theatre: European Aviation Organisations Team Up for World ATM Congress "Europe For Aviation” is the theme around which European aviation organisations working to implement the Single European Sky (SES) gather at World ATM Congress 2019. Strong collaboration between European aviation organisations (civil and military) is proving key to generating growth for the industry and to meeting the passenger demand for safer, smarter, greener, and more seamless

air travel, in line with the EU Aviation Strategy. During the Congress, these organisations will showcase how through collaboration they can go much further in tackling pressing ATM challenges, such as air traffic delays and congestion, drone integration, digital transformation, and cybersecurity.

Europe for Aviation Theatre The “Europe for Aviation” Stand (#849) and Theatre (#1151) will host a wide range of debates, presentations, and guided walking tours, illustrating the collaboration in action between European aviation organisations working to implement the Single European Sky, namely the European Commission, EUROCONTROL, SESAR Joint Un-

dertaking, SESAR Deployment Manager, European Aviation Safety Agency, European Defence Agency, Innovation and Networks Executive Agency, and EUROCAE. In doing so, the organisations will show how between them they cover the full project management cycle from policy and funding to research and deployment.

Theatre Briefings The theatre sessions will cover a wide range of technical topics, including U-space, CNS strategy, cybersecurity and civil-military cooperation. 10.00 – 11.30 11.45 – 13.15 13.30 – 14.15 14.30 – 15.30 15.45 – 16.30 16.45 – 17.30

Towards Global Interoperability U-space Developments – State of Play (followed by U-space walking tour) Panel Debate on Civil-military Collaboration Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) Evolution and Strategy Cybersecurity - Time for Concrete Actions, Together SESAR is Delivering!

• Dealing with the rising capacity crunch in the air and on the ground. Hololei cited data showing that one out of five flights in European airspace was late last year. • Mitigating aviation’s impact on the climate. Research and innovation will play a key role in sustainable growth and clean air transport, but ATM will need to contribute by limiting delays and shortening routes, he said. • Addressing challenges due to digitalisation, including big data and cyber security. “The weakest link can easily destabilize the entire chain, and none of us want to be

the weakest link,” Hololei said. But the biggest issue is the ability to deliver safe capacity as the current European system reaches its limits, he said. Last year, according to EUROCONTROL data, enroute delay was twice that of 2017. “Lack of capacity and staffing accounted for 64 percent of all delays,” Hololei said. “This is simply not acceptable nor sustainable.” Hololei’s remedies include speeding up the development of SESAR Solutions; developing proposals for short-, medium-, and long-term solutions to deliver a single European digital sky; and increasing airport capacity. The keynote session closed with questions for Hololei from Poole and the audience, including:

SESAR led participants on its “Increasing Capacity Through New ATC Concepts” walking tour.

How optimistic are you that we can deliver a single European sky? Hololei said positive signs of progress include deployment of SESAR Solutions, strengthening of the role of the Eurocontrol Network Manager, and the upcoming Wise Persons Group and European Commission’s Airspace Architecture Study. “The issue of national sovereignty is the main source of defragmentation,” he said. “Why can’t an airplane move like a truck across European borders? Philosophically, this is very difficult to understand.” Hololei said another plus is cooperation with the military. “Nobody would have thought 10 years ago we could have achieved what we have now.”

How are the US and Europe working together to facilitate the integration of SESAR and NextGen programs? “We both want to have the highest level of security, but we might have different means of getting there,” Hololei said. “We don’t need to work together in exactly the same way, but interoperability is the key word.” Why isn’t there a single European general aviation research program? “Our interests are better served when Clean Sky and SESAR are separate,” Hololei said. “It’s important that each program continue to have its own focus and not blur into something where focus will be lost, especially with SESAR moving from the development to deployment phase.”

Peter F. Dumont, President and CEO of ATCA, introduced yesterday’s InterFAB Panel “Fragmentation or Subsidiarity? A Question That No One is Asking,” which tackled the pros and cons of fragmentation and how to deliver maximum efficiency for the airspace. In his address to the FABEC OPS Theatre audience, Dumont noted that World ATM Congress has been eager to create a platform for FABEC to open a discussion for a few years. The theatre served as that venue and a welcome spot for debate, all with the objective of improving the overall experience for the airspace user. “We’re here to discuss new technologies and share operational issues that affect day-to-day activity. Operations lie at the heart of all the business we do. It introduces a new dimension to the Exhibition and brings a wider understanding of the [issues] we face in air traffic management,” said Michiel von Dorst, FABEC, LVNL.
