EASA Airborne Separation Assistance Systems (ASAS)Certification

Friedhelm Runge EASA, Parts & Appliances Section


Overview l.jpg

  • From Demonstration of Function into Operation

  • Involved Parties

  • EASA Certification Principles

  • EASA Rulemaking process

From demonstration of function into operation l.jpg

Test Phase

Installation is optional and the function is “testing”

No or limited interaction with other aircraft or ATM, standard procedures stay in place

Interaction limited to test participants

Operational Phase

Even optional the function is used for a safety critical function e.g. separation and must meet defined requirements

Defined interaction with ATM

Aircraft is eligible if certified for the defined function

Certification can be demonstrated e.g. through AFM statement

From Demonstration of Function into Operation

Involved parties 1 2 l.jpg
Involved Parties 1/2

  • Requirement Focus Group: Define Function e.g. Separation in Non Radar Airspace using ADS-B. Assign Requirements to parties

  • Airspace Regulator (States coordinated through EUROCONTROL in future European Commission within Single European Sky Air Traffic Management SESAM) defines framework for Air Traffic Service Provider and airspace users

  • ATS offers service

Involved parties 2 2 l.jpg

Aircraft certification principles 1 3 l.jpg
Aircraft Certification Principles 1/3

  • Requirements defined per aircraft (CS 25, CS 23, CS VLA) or rotorcraft (CS 29, CS 27, CS VLR) weight and passenger capacity. Requirements cover minimum needed for safe flight.

  • CS 25.1301 Function and installation:Each item of installed equipment must –(a) Be of a kind and design appropriate to its intended function;

Aircraft certification principles 1 39 l.jpg
Aircraft Certification Principles 1/3

  • CS 25.1309 Equipment, systems and installations(a) The aeroplane equipment and systems must be designed and installed so that:(1) Those required for type certification or by operating rules, or whose improper functioning would reduce safety, perform as intended under the aeroplane operating and environmental conditions.(2) Other equipment and systems are not a source of danger in themselves and do not adversely affect the proper functioning of those covered by sub-paragraph (a)(1) of this paragraph.(b) The aeroplane systems and associated components, considered separately and in relation to other systems, must be designed so that –(1) Any catastrophic failure condition (i) is extremely improbable; and (ii) does not result from a single failure; and(2) Any hazardous failure condition is extremely remote; and(3) Any major failure condition is remote.

  • Other requirements depend on the intended operation

    • CS AWO (All Weather Operation) for CAT I/II/III automatic landing

    • AMC 20-4 B-RNAV Navigation

    • (AMC 20-to come) JAA TGL 10 P-RNAV Navigation

    • (AMC 20-to come) ADS-B NRA Use of ADS-B for separation in Non Radar Airspace

    • Airspace use (8.33 kHz, Mode S)

    • Commercial Operation (2./3. System)

Certification need l.jpg
Certification Need?

  • Any design change to an aircraft model needs certification.

    • Example for Design Change: New software, additional interface, new functionality

  • Use of ADS-B for ATC separation in a Non Radar Area is a new functionality having specific requirements

    => Airworthiness certification approval is needed for the installation design on the specific aircraft model.

Certification requirements for ads b nra as provided from rfg in ed 126 to allow interoperability l.jpg
Certification Requirements for ADS-B NRA as provided from RFG in ED-126 to allow interoperability

  • Failure classification for ADS-B NRA application

  • Integrity Requirement for the ADS-B NRA application

  • Transmitted Data: Position information + quality indicators from GNSS source meeting ETSO or equivalent standard

  • Data Quality: Maximum delay time for the position information

  • Data Format: Use of ED-102/DO-260 or DO-260A for ADS-B data computation

Certification result l.jpg

  • Documentation that requirements are met

  • Statement visible to pilots and inspectors

  • Documentation of accepted non-compliances and associated restrictions

  • Basis for airborne use of the function

Overview rulemaking process l.jpg
Overview Rulemaking Process RFG in ED-126 to allow interoperability

Programming process l.jpg
Programming (process) RFG in ED-126 to allow interoperability

  • Executive Director (ED) establishes annual rulemaking program

  • He consults SSCC and AGNA

  • any person may propose issues Form

  • Programme supported by preliminary RIA (Regulatory Impact Assessment)

  • ED can adapt the program

  • Publication of program

  • Regular review of the impact of rules

Programming in practice l.jpg
Programming in practice RFG in ED-126 to allow interoperability

  • The general approach for the development of Year N Rulemaking programme and the advance planning is briefly explained here:

    • 1.The inventory of all rulemaking tasks is presented/

      • At the AGNA (Advisory Group of National Authorities) and SSCC (Safety Standards Consultative Committee) meeting in November Year N-2 requesting their comments for March Year N-1

      • In parallel to the FAA to establish a list of subjects for joint action

    • 2. The Year N programme is adopted in July of Year N-1 and two documents are produced:

      • the Year N Rulemaking programme:

        • Contain deliverables that commit the Agency

      • Year N Advance Planning:

        • Give an indication of the task that are either on-going or will start in the year but will not be finished in that year

    • Comments review by original drafter(s) AND experts not involved in the drafting

    • Comment response document (CRD) to be published 3 months after consultation for 2 month

    • above period can be amended

    • if significant differences: ED may decide to re-circulate

    • if major objections from NAA’s (for rules to be applied by MS), ED shall consult AGNA

    Npa process adoption and publication l.jpg
    NPA Process: RFG in ED-126 to allow interoperabilityAdoption and publication

    • ED will issue decision not earlier than 2 months after publication of CRD

    • Rules + explanatory memorandum to be published in Agency’s Official publication

    Summary l.jpg
    Summary RFG in ED-126 to allow interoperability

    • EASA is only one partner with limited tasks

    • The Intended Function has to be well defined

    • The assignment of responsibilities between the involved partners must be clear

    • Interfaces must be defined properly

    • Rulemaking is not a short term action
