Presentation Theater Schedule
|10:00– 10:45 a.m.
Speaker: Glyn Owen, CGH Technologies
|11:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
||Inmarsat ADS-C and Global Flight Tracking
Speaker: Joseph Teixeira, Inmarsat
Description: Inmarsat has played a leading role in evaluating the use of existing satellite surveillance and communication technology to meet ICAO’s global flight tracking requirements. Using ADS-c and CPDLC and in partnership with Airservices Australia an evaluation has just been completed and it has exceeded all expectations and fully validates that existing satellite technology is a cost effective and safe means for airlines and ANSPs to achieve ICAO’s recommendations. Inmarsat’s next generation I4 satellites are now offering higher speed, highly secure and stable satellite surveillance and communications to meet global flight tracking and new high speed data applications.
|1 – 1:30 p.m.
||1st Place Proceeding Paper
Learning Aircraft Behavior from Real Air Traffic
Speakers: Arcady Rantrua, Eric Maesen, Sebastien Chabrier, Marie-Pierre Gleizes
R&D Dept, Sopra Steria, Toulouse, France
SMAC Team, Paul Sabatier University, IRIT, Toulouse, France
|2 – 2:30 p.m.
||Remote Towers – Next Generation Tower Operations
Speaker: Markus Klopf, Frequentis
Description: The concept of Remote Towers is becoming an operational reality with deployments planned by ANSP’s in various continents. Also larger airports now consider remote tower technologies as a viable concept, not just to save costs but also to improve safety. The Frequentis Remote Tower Solution builds upon the vast experience of Frequentis in the area of mission critical control rooms, and provides a highly reliable solution built to improve the operational performance of ATC operations.
|2:45 – 3:15 p.m.
||Improving Traffic Flow in the UK through Extended Arrival and Departure Scheduling and Metering
Speaker: Thomas Günther, Harris Corporation (Senior Product Manager OSYRIS)
Description: This presentation summarizes how the Harris’ OSYRIS AMAN/DMAN helps air traffic controllers to optimize traffic flows in the London Terminal Control Area (TMA) and across the United Kingdom (UK) airspace. It will also show how AMAN sequencing and metering supports efficient delay absorption by allowing aircraft to fly with fuel-efficient speeds to the agreed metering fix. This session will provide examples of how Harris OSYRIS solutions have helped reduce fuel burn and save airlines 1.4 million USD and help optimize airport traffic at one of the world’s busiest airport runways.
|3:30 - 4:15 p.m.
||Developing Future Concepts with Data from NextGen NAS
Speaker: Phillip Holmer, GDIT
Description: NextGen’s successes include expanded availability and access to NAS data, opening opportunities for new commercial services and insight into the NAS operations and performance. Through simulation, for example, including data visualization techniques, NAS data can be assessed to develop aviation R&D concepts while supporting validation practices. This presentation will focus on opportunities for applying NextGen data to future NAS concepts.
|10:00 – 10:45 a.m.
||The Move to Managed Services
Speakers: Experts from Across the ATM Industry
Description: Globally, Air Traffic Management Systems are undergoing transformation. Initiatives such as NextGen and SESAR are focused on enabling new capabilities, improving efficiencies and modernizing aging infrastructure. With several programs in process, and more anticipated in the coming years, these initiatives create an ideal opportunity to consider the advantages that can be delivered using a Managed Services approach rather than traditional procurement models. Managed services can play a significant role in reducing total cost of ownership, extending capabilities and providing service life beyond those supported by traditional procurement models. This panel will offer a look into Managed Services being deployed today in the U.S. and internationally, lessons learned, and cost-savings and best practices realized.
|11 – 11:45 a.m.
Weather Translation and Impact
Speaker: Tim Myers, Metron Aviation
Description: With more than 60 percent of delays caused by weather-related factors, there is a significant need for common situational awareness when developing effective strategies for mitigating risks posed by meteorological and other natural hazards on aviation. Metron Aviation has developed a web-based weather translation service called Network Weather Resilience which combines ensemble weather forecasts with a look ahead horizon of 0 to 48 hours and applies weather translation models to identify the capacity impact of the weather. By doing so, we can display weather impact risks and associated alerts to users. The session is based on the Network Weather Resilience capability, which is currently under operational trial since March 2014 at EUROCONTROL by the Network Manager in Brussels.
|1 – 1:45 p.m.

|10 – 10:45 a.m.
||Data Comm Departure Clearances – An Ops Overview
Speaker: Chris Collings & Jerry Smith, Harris Corporation
Description: This session will highlight the operational implementation of Controller Pilot Data Link Communications under the FAA’s NextGen Data Comm program. With initial services deployed at three sites in the US, this session will demonstrate how the initial deployment of Data Comm operates today for the controller, pilot, and dispatcher, the expected operational benefits, and where the program expects to go in the future.
|11 – 11:30 a.m.
