Assessment of Mobility System Concepts - Understanding and Identification of potential benefits of new Mobility System concepts.
Cluster of enablers: 
Creating the Basics
Capability
Capability: 
Implementation of all air vehicle operational concepts.
Sub capability: 
n/a
R&I needs: 
Develop simulation models integrating all relevant air vehicle operational concepts (including large civil transports, unmanned aerial systems, personal aviation, helicopters… ) and aerial activities (e.g. commercial transport, search and rescue, communication, surveillance…) to allow the assessment of new air vehicle technologies, systems and concepts concerning various criteria (environmental impacts: emissions, noise; fuel efficiency; safety and security; social acceptance; comfort & passenger satisfaction aspects of the vehicle; speed and travel time aspects) and new trade-offs among the various operational concepts.
Achievements
2020: 
‘main types’ of aviation (mainly transport) can be accurately assessed and modelled
2035: 
Evolution 2020 & additionally expansion of model to the whole aviation system (special mission, UAV, GA, leisure aviation, S&R etc.)
2050: 
Evolution 2035 & improved capabilities for new mobility concepts /technologies
Key Performance Indicator: 
Degree of assessment and modelling capability of the whole aviation system
