Operational analytics and planning is key in the current European airspace since the Single European Sky scheme requires the tracking and reporting of several KPIs from Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) to Eurocontrol (EU commission 390/2013). Furthermore, with a 2.8% increase in European flights in 2018 resulting in ever more crowded airspace, managing the traffic efficiently require new tools to enhance the operations of ANSPs, to perform them: safely, ecologically and efficiently.
The ANSPs generate and receive a substantial amount of data every day. For example, ATRAK is processing circa 20 million records per day in the Czech Republic FIR alone.
By exploring operational data, ANSPs can:
- Get a concise picture from the vast amount of operational data and to benchmark decisions
- Enhance operational insights drawn from the data by merging it with other sources
- Investigate what occurs in the network and which areas can be improved
- Assess the effects of future decisions and forecast evolutions of the operations
