The objective is addressing a de-icing management tool to be used on airports with an Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) implementation, during de-icing conditions.
It aims at improving the predictability of aircraft de-icing operations by increasing the accuracy of information related to when the procedure is going to take place, how long it will take and when the aircraft will be ready to taxi for departure, which is currently calculated at best by predetermined estimates. The concept envisages that de-icing operations are no longer characterised by the A-CDM as ‘adverse conditions’, i.e. a state that is in need of collaborative recovery procedures, but rather a part of normal operations in the winter period. The de-icing process can therefore become predictable under certain weather conditions and treated as a regular procedure in normal operations.
The implementation of the objective allows for the scheduling and monitoring of de-icing operations by addressing two key functions:
• The first of which is to accurately estimate the duration of the de-icing and/or anti-icing procedures for a given airframe. This elapsed time is dependent on three parameters: the aircraft type, the prevailing weather conditions at the airport during the aircraft’s visit and the number of de-icing rigs used for the application of de-icing and anti-icing fluids.
• The second function is to calculate a de-icing sequence that optimises available resources and allocates them to slots in a timeline while taking into account the constraining variables that limit how the problem can be optimised. For on-stand and after-push operations de-icing rigs are assigned to these slots, while remote de-icing considers the track availability at the designated location, i.e. the de-icing pad.
NOTE FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each military authority to review this Objective IN ITS ENTIRETY and address each of the SLoAs that the military authority considers RELEVANT for itself. This has to be done on top and above of the review of "MIL" SLoAs which identify actions EXCLUSIVE to military authorities.
