 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The 4DCo-GC project aims at exploring the concept of '4D Contract guidance and control of the aircraft' as a step change in air transport operations by providing a more radical and environmentally efficient solution for the management of the airspace. Scientific objectives of 4DCo-GC are to: - model 4D contract concepts (strategic, tactical and emergency levels) - develop algorithms (strategic, tactical planning), process and functions (failure management, emergency separation, …) needed to use 4D contacts - define and develop a global tool architecture to demonstrate and analyse the key operating advantages of the 4D contract concept, including the man's role - elaborate an assessment methodology and metrics to qualify and quantify 4D contract characteristics and performances for the control and guidance of aircraft - perform a real time assessment of 4D contract concepts of operations - organize dissemination and demonstration workshops in from of an external audience - derive from a qualification and quantification work, recommendations for future 4DT system development. 4DCo-GC brings together the expertise of 13 European and associated partners coming from 7 countries, for a total budget of 5.7 M€ and a total requested funding of 4.1 M€. This 36 months duration programme of work is built on the results of several past EU programmes and projects. Main results expected out of 4DCo-GC project are technological components (software/hardware/architectures) and recommendations for future 4D trajectories guidance and control systems, addressing several priorities of ACARE. Regarding the short/middle-term expected evolutions of the European air transport system, 4DCo-GC is fully aligned with the orientation of SESAR, and particularly the so-called 'ATM Target Concept'.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

A novel aviation strategy based on the concept of four-dimension (4D) contract guidance will enable aircraft to navigate more efficiently. Helping to improve air navigation significantly, this will enhance safety and reduce costs.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Commercial aviation has revolutionised transport in the last century, and experts concur that for aviation to be sustainable it requires a much more automated air transport system (ATS). As part of the solution, aviation authorities have envisioned the 4D contract concept, which can solve current challenges of aircraft trajectory prediction and enhance safety. This visionary strategy binds aircraft to remain inside their assigned 4D volume, as defined by a predetermined contract, although the idea still requires more research and development.

The EU-funded project '4 Dimension contracts - guidance and control' (4DCO-GC) is investigating 4D contract guidance and control of the aircraft to improve management of airspace and render it more environmentally efficient. It is creating the necessary software and tools to define, model and perfect 4D contract concepts. The project team is performing real-time assessments of 4D contract concepts and related operations using a simulator to outline recommendations and standards for a future 4D transport system.

Already, the project team has worked on refining the 4D contract concept by defining the required trajectory and margins around the aircraft. It has also developed the simulation infrastructure and modules in line with airline departure and arrival airports and times. Each module deals with specific topics such as conflict resolution, departure/arrival optimisation, ground aircraft planning and contract compliance monitoring.

In addition, the project team has conducted the first simulation exercise to assess compatibility of modules and evaluate the software. The simulation helped clarify the 4D contract concept to external audiences and obtained feedback on the approach, helping refine cutting-edge ideas to improve global air traffic and aircraft guidance.

4DCO-GC has effectively advanced the definition of multiple systems to enable more automated operation of the aircraft, from collision avoidance to health monitoring. If exploited, the results would increase savings and enhance sustainability thanks to more efficient travel. Last but not least, the 4D contract concept will validate Europe's leadership in air transport and propel the aviation industry to new heights.
