September 2007


Who we are

Who We Are

  • Canada’s provider of civil air navigation services

  • Private sector company

  • 5,300 employees

  • Second largest ANS in world

  • 7.0 million IFR movements per year

  • Supported through service charges

  • Regulated by Federal Government (Transport Canada) on safety performance

After 10 years

After 10 Years

  • Safety

    • IFR to IFR LOS from 1.36 (per 100,000) in 1997 to 0.77 in 2006

  • Service

    • Increased collaboration, reduced delays and fuel burn

    • Customers savings of $100 million annually

  • Service Charges

    • 6 % increase since 1999, 14 percentage points below inflation

    • 4% reduction effective August 1, 2007

  • ANS Non-Operational Costs

    • Additional $100 million in annual savings

  • Technology Innovations

    • $1 billion invested in safety, service, efficiency


Enhancing safety and efficiency

Enhancing Safety and Efficiency

  • Customers’ Goals

    • Safety

    • Schedule

    • Efficiency

      • (fuel savings = reduced emissions)

    • Value


Enhancing safety and efficiency1

Enhancing Safety and Efficiency

  • Global focus on industry with concerns about:

    • Rising fuel costs

    • Energy supply

    • Safety and security

    • Greenhouse gas emissions

  • Innovation and optimization by all industry players required to address these concerns

  • NAV CANADA will do its part


Enhancing safety and efficiency2

Enhancing Safety and Efficiency

  • Identify/explore new and viable methods to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve flight efficiency

    • Optimum route and altitude

    • Continuous climb to cruise

    • Continuous idle descent to approach

    • Lowest possible approach minima

    • Minimum ground delay

    • Increased airspace capacity

    • Increased airport capacity


Enhancing safety and efficiency3

Enhancing Safety and Efficiency

  • Example: Investigate effects of noise abatement procedures on:

    • capacity,

    • arrival and departure rates,

    • fuel burn and emission production

  • Coordinated investigation into ‘potential’ with stakeholders


Optimizing atm

Optimizing ATM

  • Improve safety and efficiency by:

    • Increased application of RNAV with performance

    • Airspace and airport capacity enhancements

    • Complementary aircraft and ANS technology


Area navigation rnav

Area Navigation (RNAV)

  • Initiatives

    • RNAV Routes

      • Random Route Trials

    • RNAV STARS (Standard Instrument Arrivals)

    • RNAV SIDS (Standard Instrument Departures)

    • RNAV Approaches (WAAS and RNP)


Northern organized track structure ots

Northern Organized Track Structure (OTS)

  • Implemented January 2007

  • 2,100 flights per year

  • Saves 1-3 min/flight

  • Fuel savings of ~315 metric tonnes/year

  • CO2 reduction of approximately 1,000 metric tonnes/year


Airspace optimization

Airspace Optimization

  • Expanded Northern surveillance coverage in 2004

  • RVSM implemented throughout Canada in 2005

  • Expanded Northern Direct Controller – Pilot Communications (DCPC) in progress*


Automatic dependent surveillance broadcast

Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast

Multilateration

Multilateration

  • Tracks and identifies all transponder equipped targets in all weather conditions

  • Improvements to capacity, efficiency and safety

  • Initial installation at Vancouver Harbour; Fort St. John


Enhancing capacity

Enhancing Capacity

Visual Aircraft Spacing Tool (VAST)

  • Fewer delays experienced by users

  • Adaptable as a spacing tool for:

    • converging runways

    • dependent and independent parallel approaches

    • single runway operations

  • Increases in capacity

    • up to 30% in Calgary

Converging Runway Display Aid (CRDA) Application


Increasing efficiency

Increasing Efficiency

Extended Computer Display System (EXCDS)

  • Advanced tower, terminal, airport and en route coordination system

  • Automates flight data transactions

  • Part of suite of ATM products designed to improve efficiency


Looking ahead

Looking Ahead

  • Expansion of northern surveillance and VHF communications

  • Expansion of GPS-based (RNAV) en route and approach procedures

  • Increased use of Polar Routes; Northern OTS

  • ADS-B and Multilateration implementation
