    Climate-optimised flight routes

    Cli­mate-op­ti­mised flight routes

    March 4, 2021 
    The two graphs show ex­am­ples of how flight routes from Eu­rope to North Amer­i­ca can be made more cli­mate-friend­ly. In the up­per di­a­gram, it can be seen that a much more norther­ly flight route (green dashed line) has a small­er cli­mate im­pact than the short­est flight route (blue) and most cost-ef­fec­tive flight route (black sol­id line) to the south. The fur­ther north the flight path is shift­ed, the low­er the cli­mate im­pact (in­di­cat­ed by fur­ther dashed flight paths in be­tween). The il­lus­tra­tion be­low shows that a cli­mate op­ti­mi­sa­tion of the flight path can al­so be achieved by vary­ing the flight al­ti­tude. The colour scale shows which ar­eas have a com­par­a­tive­ly high cli­mate im­pact when an air­craft flies through them. The cli­mate im­pact shown in­cludes, for ex­am­ple, how ex­ten­sive and long-last­ing con­den­sa­tion trails are formed in cer­tain re­gions. Il­lus­tra­tion ac­cord­ing to Lührs et al. 2018.

    Real-time simulation of air traffic situations in the ATMOS simulator

    Re­al-time sim­u­la­tion of air traf­fic sit­u­a­tions in the AT­MOS sim­u­la­tor

    March 4, 2021 
    The Air Traf­fic Man­age­ment and Op­er­a­tions Sim­u­la­tor (AT­MOS) will al­so be used in DI­AL for the re­al-time sim­u­la­tion of high­ly au­to­mat­ed sys­tems and cer­tain air traf­fic sit­u­a­tions.

    March 4, 2021 
    In­no­va­tive Air Traf­fic Man­age­ment (ATM) con­cepts such as sec­tor­less flight guid­ance are be­ing fur­ther de­vel­oped in the Sec­tor­less Lab of the In­sti­tute of Flight Guid­ance, among oth­er things.

    Con­den­sa­tion trails and the re­sult­ing con­trail cir­rus make a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the non-car­bon-diox­ide ef­fects of air trans­port on the cli­mate. These must be min­imised for cli­mate-op­ti­mised flight routes.

    Screenshot of the RIESGOS demonstrator

    Screen­shot of the RIES­GOS demon­stra­tor

    March 1, 2021 
    The RIES­GOS demon­stra­tor is based on a mod­u­lar and scal­able con­cept for mul­ti-risk in­for­ma­tion. It con­sists of a se­ries of in­de­pen­dent, dis­tribut­ed web­ser­vices, and a us­er in­ter­face that ac­cess­es these ser­vices. The graph­i­cal us­er in­ter­face of the demon­stra­tor can be ac­cessed from a web brows­er. The main screen is di­vid­ed in­to three main dis­play ar­eas: the cen­tral map win­dow, the con­fig­u­ra­tion wiz­ard for the con­trol of each web ser­vice to the left, and the re­sults pan­el to the right.

    Ecuador – warning of volcanic activity

    Ecuador – warn­ing of vol­canic ac­tiv­i­ty

    March 1, 2021 
    In the Co­topaxi Na­tion­al Park in Ecuador, the dan­ger of vol­canic ac­tiv­i­ty is present. The 5897-me­tre-high Co­topaxi – one of the high­est ac­tive vol­ca­noes on Earth – is lo­cat­ed here. Since it is lo­cat­ed on­ly 50 kilo­me­tres from the cap­i­tal, Quito, the po­ten­tial for dan­ger is high.
