At the beginning of June 2020 begins the implementation of the X-TEAM D2D project, funded by the European Commission under the SESAR JU programme (Horizon 2020), which aims at developing the new generation air traffic management system capable of ensuring the safety and fluidity of air transport worldwide. The consortium coordinated by Italian aerospace research centre CIRA consists of six partners. The project is being carried out at the Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Aviation in the Transport Systems Department (Aviation Technologies Center). Łukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation will take part in the entire design process, acting as a coordinator of Work Package 2, aimed at determining future scenarios and barriers with respect to the implementation of intermodal transport, emphasizing the specific ATM perspective.
X-TEAM D2D project aims to define, developing and initially validating a Concept of Operations (ConOps) for the seamless integration of ATM and Air Transport into an overall intermodal network, including other available transportation means (surface, water), to enable the door-to-door connectivity, in up to 4 hours, between any location in Europe, in compliance with the target assigned by the ACARE SRIA FlightPath 2050 goals.
The project is focused on the consideration of ConOps for ATM integration in intermodal transport network serving Urban and Extended Urban (up to Regional) mobility, taking into account the transportation and passengers service scenarios envisaged for the next decades, according to baseline (2025), intermediate (2035) and final (2050) time horizons.
The target ConOps provided and initially validated by the X-TEAM D2D project will encompass both the transportation platforms integration concepts and the innovative seamless mobility as a service including ATM concepts. The developed ConOps will be preliminarily evaluated against already existing and specifically defined applicable KPAs and KPIs, implementing both qualitative and quantitative performances assessment approach. The X-TEAM D2D project will develop a simulation-based platform for validating the proposed concept.
