At SESAR Innovation Days to present a way to improve local air quality around airports

The AEON project has recently participated in the last edition of SESAR Innovation Days. During this well-known conference, the Consortium presented a paper and a poster to illustrate the set of tools developed to assist ATCOs in managing the increased number of vehicles that may be introduced on the ground to cut fuel consumption and therefore

A Taskforce for Advanced Surface Movements (A-SMGCS)

Among the different task forces launched by EUROCONTROL, the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation, one has been launched recently to take into account all recent ATC/ATM developments that can impact EUROCONTROL A-SMGCS Specifications. The first meeting of the A-SMGCS TF took place in mid-November 2022. As a task force member, the Consortium had the

A paper on greener taxiing operations

In mid-October 2022, the Consortium participated in the Towards Sustainable Aviation Summit in Toulouse. The AEON project presented its second paper illustrating the project results after the validation session. After an overall description of the context of the application, the paper moves to the presentation of the concept, the inter-operating supporting tool and the validation

Increasing Automation in ATM and Airport Operations

AEON and ARTIMATION are SESAR JU exploratory research projects supporting the European Union to increase the level of automation in ATM and Airport operations. In particular, the projects are providing an innovative concept of engine-off taxiing techniques (i.e., WheelTug, TaxiBots and Single-Engine Taxiing) and transparent and explainable algorithms presented with different visualisation techniques to improve

Greener Taxiing Operations being validated at ENAC

In the first week of July, the AEON Consortium met in Toulouse at the ENAC facilities to carry out the final evaluation of the operational concept that integrates engine-off taxiing techniques such as TaxiBots, E-Taxi, WheelTugs and Single-Engine Taxiing. The evaluation of AEON's solution began almost a year ago when the Consortium asked the Advisory

Defining the future of airport ground operations

The AEON project has recently flown to Amsterdam Schiphol to meet the partners of the ALBATROSS project, an SJU-funded industrial project aiming to demonstrate how the technical and operational R&D achievements of last years can transform the current fuel-intensive aviation into an environment-friendly industry sector. The two Consortia were able to exchange the results from
