Paper 31 -- Pilot Perspective Of Asas Self-Separation In Challenging Environments

This paper describes the results of two Real-Time Simulation experiments (RTS2 and RTS3) on ASAS Self-Separation, conducted on the Research Flight Simulator at NLR in Amsterdam, within the context of the Mediterranean Free Flight (MFF) Program. RTS2 specifically investigated the procedures defined for transitions between Managed Airspace (MAS) and Free Flight Airspace (FFAS). Both Airborne Traffic Situational Awareness (ATSAW) and Airborne Self-Separation Assurance have been addressed in Managed and Free Flight Airspace, respectively. For RTS3 a pilot human factors evaluation was conducted on ASAS Self-Separation, investigating the effects of weather, military activities and failures. Further, training needs for ASAS Self-Separation have been assessed, as well as the need for a vertical navigation display.Based on the results from these experiments it can be concluded that there are no showstoppers found for ASAS Self-Separation in challenging environments. The Human Machine Interface as well as the Conflict Detection & Resolution algorithms appear well accepted by participating subject pilots. Slight adjustments to the ASAS algorithms and procedures were identified based on the experiment results.
