1 Total Airport Management Systems Institute of Flight GuidanceDr.-Ing. Christoph Meier
2 Situation Airports are very large, complex systems due to: Interface between different Traffic Modes (Air, Rail, Road,...)Internal Traffic (Passenger, Luggage, Cargo, Crew,...)Various Services (ATC, Catering, Fire Brigade, Towing cars,...)Dependencies between Services due to:Share of common resources (e.g. Tarmac of the Apron)Share of common objective (Transport of Persons and Goods)
3 Problems Historically grown Structures Different commercial and governmental StakeholdersPartly conflicting Interests between StakeholdersFurther Fragmentation in the near FutureCo-ordination from the Local Point of View of the ServicesLocal Decision Making without Globale Situation ViewVery conventional Techniques for Co-ordination
4 Total Airport Management System Innovative IdeaTotal Airport Management SystemATCApronControlAirlineCatering...Airport Ressources
5 BenefitsOptimized Use of Airport Ressources due to Integrated OperationsMore Throughput through the AirportEnhanced Robustness by Improved Management of ExceptionsMore Money for the ServiceLess Environmental Impact for the SocietyMore Comfort for the Passengers / Customers
6 Questions What are the Possibilities and Limits of TAMS? Who would benefit and how big are the Benefits?What Technical and Operational Changes would be necessary?What Technologies could be used?Centralized or Distributed System Architecture?How to Test, Demonstrate and Validate a TAMS?How can an Airport migrate to a TAMS?Who will operate such a TAMS?...
7 What we are already doing Modelling Airside and Landside ProcessesInvestigating new HMI TechnologiesDeveloping first TAMS Ideas and ConceptsPreparing a Development Environment
8 What is still necessary In order to speed up research further funding is necessaryA joint effort of research and users would be more efficientEuropean ATC Providers would directly profit from optimized Airports, so Eurocontrol should have a certain interest in TAMSMobility is one of the most important topics of tomorrows society, so the EU should have a certain interest in TAMS
9 Potential further Steps 1. Pilot StudyThourough Determination of the State of the ArtSituation Analysis at 3-4 European AirportsDefinition of further necessary work more in detailBuilding Research ConsortiaDevelopment of Operational and Technical Concepts2. Feasibility StudyDetailled Requirement AnalysisPrototyping main parts of a Total Airport Management SystemEvaluation in simulation and field test...
