Domain category: 
Operational Concept
Enabler
Enabler: 
To fully utilise achieved SESAR, NextGen, Clean Sky outcomes to minimise environmental impact and fuel consumption
Cluster of enablers: 
Improving air operations and traffic management
Capability
Capability: 
Optimisation of each flight phase and of overall flight at unitary aircraft level
Sub capability: 
Multi-criteria flight optimisation in new ATM context
R&I needs: 
- Develop trade-off tools and operational modes for flight planning and real-time flight management enabling multi-criteria optimisation versus travel time, fuel consumption, chemical emissions, perceived noise...
Achievements
2020: 
* 4D- trajectory management introduced * Worldwide meteo models for aviation available * Trajectory optimisation includes vertical and lateral profiles in airport areas * Concepts for on-demand decision support from Ground established
2035: 
* 4D trajectory management is generalised * Free flight operations with self-separation is generalised * Worldwide meteo models include data related to contrails * Real-time meteo data available for all ground/air actors * Multi-criteria aircraft trajectory optimisation is generalised and covers new aircraft configurations * Reduced crew operations including Electronic copilot and Ground cockpit framework are possible * Contrails impact, if confirmed, is mitigated * Multiple aircraft formation flights are possible * Concepts of operations are available for personnal aircraft * Specific concepts of operations for UAS are available (including for passengerless/fret UAS)
2050: 
* UAS and personnal aircraft operations are routinely possible in the fully integrated Air Transport System
