  1. Airfield Ground Lighting Safety & Capacity Enabler

  2. Airport Eco-System Airport Customers Airport Elements Airport management is a complex business: many customers, providers, authorities and airport elements are involved and they do have conflicting interests. • Passengers • Baggage • Cargo • Aircrafts • Runways • Taxiways • Apron Area • Pax Terminal etc. Scen. 1 Scen. 2 ………… Scen. n Airport managers have to evaluate the impact of the proposed solutions (scenarios) in several key performance areas, considering all the stakeholders. Capacity Delays Level of Service Safety Security Emissions Noise Cost HONEYWELL CONFIDENTIAL - FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY

  3. Inefficiencies in Ground Operations • Annually, at major airports in the United States (2009 ASPM) • Over 32 million minutes taxi-out delay (over unimpeded times) • Over 13 million minutes taxi-in delay (over unimpeded times) • Terminal-area volume responsible for 19% of delays at OEP 35 airports in 2009 • Aircraft in Europe are estimated to spend 10-30% of their time taxiing [Airbus 2008] • A short/medium range A320 expends as much as 5-10% of its fuel on the ground [Airbus 2008] • Taxiing aircraft contribute to surface emissions as well as noise • Increased Taxi Times, Fuel Burn, Emissions HONEYWELL CONFIDENTIAL - FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY

  4. Needs of Airside Operations • A-CDM (Airport Collaborative Decision Making) • Unambiguous communications • Runway entrance control • No confusing lights • Less stop and go • Continuous taxi speed • Improved controller efficiency • Optimizing the use of available infrastructure • Robust A-SMGCS (Advance Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems) Towards Optimized Ground Operations HONEYWELL CONFIDENTIAL - FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY

  10. A-SMGCS Guidance with AGL

  11. Runway Functions (Safety) • Runway Protection • Time to touch down in an ‚Impending Arrival‘ arrow • Automatically switching on and locking of runway stop bars 30 sec before touch down • Show runway as occupied • Automatically switch off stop bars behind landing aircraft • Automatically switch off all stop bars, if aircraft slower than 80km/h • video scene • Smart Runway Protection • Automatically switch on runway stop bar in front of aircraft for line up or crossing runway • video scene HONEYWELL CONFIDENTIAL - FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY

  12. Taxiway Functions (Safety) • Aircraft separation (blocking) under CAT II/III • Under weather condition CAT II/III there is always one switched on stop bar between two aircrafts video scene Taxiing with Guidance by TXC and STB; Fog Picture Source: Atrics GmbH

  13. Individual Routing (Capacity) • Automatic Individual Routing • An optimal route (with relation to distance) is shown for each individual aircraft which has a stand or runway as destination • On a landing aircraft the runway exits are switched on into the direction of the destination • The route for each pilot is displayed with taxiway center line lights • The route ends at a switched on stop bar, an aircraft which drives in front, at the border of an area of responsibility, at the destination • video scene • If a pilot leaves his assigned route a ‚route deviation‘ alert is generated and as soon as possible a new optimal route is calculated and displayed to the pilot • video scene

  14. Individual & Collective Routes • Individual routes consider restricted areas (Safety) • Restricted areas are considered by individual routes video scene • Collective route for lot of aircrafts and displayed through the taxiway center line lights Taxiing with Guidance by TXC Picture Source: Atrics GmbH

  15. Key Benefits • Safety – 70% less incursions • Prevention of Runway Incursion with increased situational awareness for pilots • Efficiency & Environment • Continuous Taxi Speeds – pilot maintain speed at intersections • Reduced Handover delay – frequency is free from continuing taxi clearance • Improved Traffic Sequencing – More time for planning by reduced workload • Smooth Flow of Traffic – No route deviations or holding position overruns • Capacity – Up to 15% increase and corresponding reduce in delays • Increased LVP Taxiway throughput – Automated provisioning of longitudinal separation • Cost Effectiveness • Increased Controller Productivity – Handle Traffic growth without additional resources • Economic use of lighting equipment – Reduced lamp burning and replacements HONEYWELL CONFIDENTIAL - FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY

  16. SESAR-JU “Follow the Green” Results • Increased FLIGHT CREW’S SITUATIONAL AWARENESS (>Factor 3) • Pilots see a potential in further improving SITUATIONAL AWARENESS by providing information on sequences and stop reasons, e.g. via GMG • Reduced FLIGHT CREW’S WORKLOAD (>50%) • Reduced FLIGHT CREW’S FRUSTRATION LEVEL (less ambiguity) • Very good USABILITY values (easy to understand and credible) • Increased SAFETY (4 route deviations in pre-SESAR, none with AGL) Source: SESAR AGL Validation HONEYWELL CONFIDENTIAL - FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY

  17. SESAR-JU “Follow the Green” Results • Reduced TAXI TIMES (>37% in low-vis, >17% in CAVOK) • Increased TRAFFIC FLUENCY (> -65% stops in low-vis, > -40% in CAVOK) • Reduced FUEL BURN (>40% in low-vis, >18% in CAVOK) • Reduced EMISSIONS (>40% in low-vis, >20% in CAVOK) • Improved AIRPORT TAXI PERFORMANCE (~100% performance in low-vis) • Reduced MOVEMENT DELAY (>50% time reduction TXR to movement) • Reduced COMMUNICATION EFFORT (~50% reduction of R/T time) Source: SESAR AGL Validation HONEYWELL CONFIDENTIAL - FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY
