Traffic Optimisation

Traffic optimisation solutions & green operations

Ensuring effective Air Traffic Management operations at and around airports today calls for innovative, perhaps even ground-breaking procedures and decision-support systems. Globally, the ICAO Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU) provide an appropriate blueprint. At the European level, the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) programme is blazing a trail for ATM modernisation and greener operations.

Frequentis Orthogon, which joined the Frequentis group in 2021, is recognised as the global leader in high-performance traffic synchronisation solutions. Its solution portfolio boasts a 20-year track record of success, with skyguide leading the way as the first Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) to deploy the AMAN back in 2001. Today, ATCOs worldwide trust the Frequentis solutions to manage air traffic at and around airports in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way possible.

Frequentis was recognised for its contribution to sustainability in aviation with the CANSO Maverick Sustainability Award in 2021.


Products & Solutions

Integrated Arrival Departure Manager (IAD)

It can be difficult to optimise runway usage at high-demand, capacity-constrained airports, especially in the case of mixed-mode operations at airports that have just one runway for both arrivals and departures. The Frequentis Integrated Arrival Departure Manager (IAD) solution addresses the challenge of balancing arrivals and departures for maximised airport performance, for example by optimising the efficiency of integrating departures into the arrival stream.

Arrival Manager (AMAN)

The Frequentis Arrival Manager (AMAN) solution helps air traffic controllers efficiently manage inbound flights to optimise runway and airspace capacity. AMAN offers decision-support capabilities to all controllers managing arrivals. Where required, it can be deployed in multi-runway configurations and multi-airport environments. In 2021, the Frequentis Orthogon AMAN won the CANSO Maverick Sustainability Award for its contribution to sustainable aviation.

Departure Manager (DMAN)

The Frequentis Departure Manager solution supports consistent optimised planning of outbound airport traffic, in turn driving optimised target times at the runway and the stands. Its key objectives are the efficient management of airport departure traffic, to ensure maximum utilisation of the available runway capacity, and the appropriate management of additional constraints such as Minimum Departure Intervals (MDIs) and Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) requirements.

Demand Capacity Balancer

The Demand Capacity Balancer (DCB) is the world’s first Airport Operations Plan (AOP) management tool. The solution provides a powerful digital twin of airport operations and significantly extends the current planning horizon of Airport CDM to support the AOP implementation in Europe and globally. DCB enables information sharing and integration with the Network Operations Plan (NOP), for example through its unique capability to calculate Target Times of Arrival (TTA).

Stand Optimiser

The Stand Optimiser manages stand planning and allocation at airports. It improves stand utilisation through KPI-based optimisation and what-if capability, resulting in better airport efficiency and increased capacity. Its unique capability to integrate with our Demand Capacity Balancer (DCB) helps to connect airport airside and landside information and contributes to the Airport Operations Plan (AOP) for early and proactive performance management by all airport stakeholders.

O4D Trajectory Prediction

The Frequentis Orthogon 4D (O4D) Trajectory Prediction has a proven track record of more than 20 years in providing reliable trajectory predictions in air traffic management (ATM). O4D contributes to air traffic flow management (ATFM) and air traffic control (ATC) as well as the coordination with airspace users to achieve optimum trajectories. Frequentis Orthogon successfully deployed the O4D Trajectory Prediction as a service within skyguide’s pioneering Virtual Centre programme.

FREQUENTIS to ensure greater airspace safety and capacity for EUROCONTROL MUAC fallback operations

  • Safety and airspace capacity will be enhanced at one of Europe’s busiest and most complex airspaces
  • The Fallback Controller Working Position (CWP) follows Single European Sky open data interface principles
  • Based on the Frequentis OneATM user interface framework ODS Open Platform, the CWP ensures resilient operations even at high traffic volumes

EUROCONTROL, MUAC, one of the Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) of four EUROCONTROL member states – Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands, selected Frequentis to provide its CWP as part of the MUAC fallback automation system. To ensure a high airspace capacity during fallback operations, while maintaining safety levels, EUROCONTROL's primary CWP will be mirrored by the fallback system, enabling controller requirements to be met in a similar way.
