Description

The scope of the project is to equip TAP Portugal fleet with ROPS (Runway Overrun Prevention System) functionality (for a total of 50+ aircraft).

ROPS is an aircraft system which protects the equipped aircraft against runway end overrun on all airfields they land on.

ROPS reduces the Aircraft runway excursion risk at landing by:

  • Continuous monitoring of Aircraft energy during landing phase

  • Converting Aircraft energy into actual necessary landing distance

  • Comparing necessary landing distance to the landing distance available, in real time

  • Alerting pilot crew in case of potential overrun
