The PARTAKE project will provide a set of mechanisms to enhance TBO concepts while enabling a more effortless and transparent interaction between the ATM DST’s. Furthermore, predictability is a fundamental TBO requirement, which must coexist with flexibility in a dynamic environment subject to different sources of disturbances and perturbations. To improve ATM performance, flexibility should match the demand with minimum distortions to the AU’s needs.

PARTAKE mechanism will support flexible synchronization enhancing both predictability and adherence by analysing the hidden freedom gaps that now a days are not capitalized due to a lack of causal analysis tools to cope with ATM complexity.

PARTAKE algorithms try to minimize ATC directives by a multiechelon approach transforming tight trajectory interdependencies into robust clearances. These new smart time stamp adjustments will be aware of the environment in which they are operating and their freedom gap degree for an optimal combination of trajectories enabling in this way the future implementation of self-monitoring methods. Moreover the capability to communicate and distribute transparent relevant data after the RBT agreement process, enhances TBO to a higher level of fairness and equity criterion preserving AU’s preferences and resilience by improving departure clearances.


The following impacts and results can be outlined:
