Use Case Areas
Enabling more sustainable flight operations through increasing the share of CDOs and improving the taxiing process.
Continuous Descent Operations (CDO)
Increase the share of CDOs from Top of Descent to save carbon and noise emissions!
Optimise your airspace procedure to enable more efficient arrival routings and share information with stakeholder.
- Showing current state and constraints from an airline and airspace perspective
- Fuel and emission saving potential
- Tracking targets and realised savings
Continuous Descent Operations are an essential element in any fuel saving programme of an airline, while air traffic control enables the aircraft to operate such procedures and airport surrounding housing areas are less affected by aircraft noise. The benefits of these procedures are widespread. Constraints can be traffic volume, airspace restrictions and the right insights to measure the current state to take the right measures. Aeroficial Intelligence helps to analyse airspace to provide insights on the constraints in the local airspace. Having available also fuel consumptions from each aircraft descent compared to an optimal approach enables fuel and emission saving use cases.
Reduce taxi stops and save emissions!
During the taxi process at airports and especially at congested airfields, stop-start traffic during taxiing is happening on a continuous basis. Each of these stops is leading to an increase in engine operating time as well as additional fuel burn due to an extra acceleration phase. Imagine an aircraft that has been waiting in a stop and is now ready to continue its taxi process, how much fuel will be used for the acceleration process?
Aeroficial Intelligence helps to measure each of these stops, no matter if this was a stop after pushback, in a Queue, before the holding point or in a de-icing situation. In addition, Aeroficial Intelligence helps to show innovative procedures how stops can be reduced to save CO2 emission and reduce the carbon footprint at the airport.
- Reduction in airside stops
- Help to reach emission targets
- Operational cost savings
