Munich Airport
Leader: Munich Airport


In the SESAR deployment context:

  • EU 409/2013 on the definition of common projects, the establishment of governance and the identification of incentives supporting the implementation of the European Air Traffic Management Master Plan

  • EU 716/2014 on the establishment of the Pilot Common Project supporting the implementation of the European Air Traffic Management Master Plan, making binding the implementation of six first ATM (Air Traffic Management) functionalities, constituting the first Common Project, referred to as the "Pilot Common Project".
    Among these 6 new ATM functionalities listed is Airport Integration and Throughput, which includes the deployment baselines Airport CDM as well as A-SMGCS level 1 & 2.

  • PDP published by the Deployment Manager, in the Fast -Track FT 2.2.1 Sub AF2.2 Departure Management integrating Surface Management Constraints.

  • The goal of the project is to implement collectively with other airports an A-SMGCS System capable of level 1 and level 2 operations in preparation for level 2+ operations at a later date, according to the Preliminary Deployment Programme FT 2.1.1).

  • The departure sequence at the runway shall be optimized according to the real traffic situation reflecting any change off-gate or during taxi to the runway.
    o Thus enabled, A-SMGCS shall provide optimized taxi-time and improve predictability of take-off times by monitoring of real surface traffic and by considering updated taxi times in departure management regardless of meteorological or other impacting conditions.
    o In a further step, planned routing and planning functions shall calculate the most operationally relevant route as free as possible of conflicts which permits the aircraft to go from stand to runway, from runway to stand or any other surface movement.
