Deployment Scenario Title

Aircraft as an AIM/MET sensor and consumer

Deployment Scenario Description Aircraft as an AIM/MET sensor and consumer: this Solution addresses the application of information made available by the aircraft (e.g. aircraft meteorological data, information derived from ADS-C, CNS status information) and improved use of MET and AIM information by airspace users. It makes it possible to increase AUs’ situational awareness and improve strategic trajectory management and collaborative decision-making.
