Deployment Scenario Title

Improved vertical profiles through enhanced vertical clearances

Deployment Scenario Description Improved vertical profiles through enhanced vertical clearances: the objective is to develop automation support for ATCOs to issue vertical constraints that help achieve more efficient flight profiles while ensuring separation provision. In the first step, for flights still in climb, enhanced predictions of vertical profile data are presented to ATCOs to facilitate decision-making. In a second, more advanced step, the ATC system will generate proposals for conflict-free clearances that take anticipated aircraft performance into account, and which can be uplinked to the flight crews by ATCOs.
