Abstract

We integrate existing technologies and build an infrastructure that is ready to leverage emerging technologies to realize an oceanic TBO capability that is seamless with the domestic air traffic operations and a solution that is within the near-term horizon. Technologies include surveillance (both traditional ADS-B and space-based ADS-B) as well as domestic weather radar and other weather source (e.g., GOES satellite information), and a probing capability to allow oceanic traffic to plan TBO operations into domestic airspace. We investigate how to to assist the airlines in submitting oceanic flight plan amendments in Trajectory Options Set (TOS) formats for offshore airspace compatible with the FAA?s Collaborative Trajectory Options Program (CTOP).
