The services that FerWay can provide are illustrated by means of practical ATM System questions and paths for solution that FerWay services will employ. Most importantly, these questions illustrate the types of challenges in which FerWay can support your organization. Feel free to contact FerWay for your specific ATM Developments and their innovations.
In this section, some examples of questions that may arise in the development of Trajectory Prediction (TP) are given. FerWay has extensive experience in the field of TP design, development and validation. Check our Project section for an illustration of these activities.
FerWay can support your organization whether you need to build a new TP from scratch, evaluate and tune an existing TP or upgrade TP functionality.
Question: Defining the accuracy requirement for a Trajectory Predictor.
Most of our ATM System functionalities rely on a Trajectory Predictor (TP). Which accuracy requirements do we need the TP to satisfy in order to be able to serve these functionalities?
Question: Measuring the accuracy and performance of a Trajectory Predictor.
How do we establish the current accuracy performance of our Trajectory Predictor? How do we establish functional correctness?
Question: Upgrading the Trajectory Prediction function.
We have established higher accuracy requirements for our Trajectory Predictor (TP). Do we need to develop a new TP or de we upgrade our current TP?
Question: Implementing a hi-resolution weather model in the TP.
Currently we use meteorological data (winds aloft and temperatures) with a low granularity. What will be the benefit of using hi-resoution weather than can be provided by contemporary weather models like HIRLAM or RUC? Which design elements do we need to consider to attain our TP accuracy targets?
Question: Achieving Trajectory Prediction Synchronization.
We established we need to synchronize two different TPs used in our ATM System. How can this be achieved and to which extent should we pursue synchronization?
Question: Dealing with more than one Trajectory Predictor in an ATM System.
We want to introduce new ATM System functionalities which will work with a different Trajectory Predictor (TP). What are the effects of such differences? Are these effects acceptable or how can the negative effects be mitigated?
For example: A TP is used in the overall ATM System for driving presentation events. Another TP serves a conflict detection module. A third TP is considered for introduction to serve the an enhanced AMAN. The integration of the new AMAN-TP is analyzed in the context of the existing ATM-System. Potential sources as well as effects of differences are identified. Where possible these differences are analyzed for their impact.
