I-4D receives the “Enabling Technology Award” for air traffic management excellence
The Airbus-developed I-4D (initial four-dimensional) system has been
recognised for technological excellence by leading information provider
IHS Jane's, underscoring its capabilities for improving the efficiency
of air traffic management operations worldwide. I-4D - which is a
cornerstone of the SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) programme -
utilises a new-generation system for enhanced arrival flow management,
improved flight punctuality and more capacity, and its first flight
tests were completed in February using an A320 test aircraft. The
"Enabling Technology Award" was received by Airbus and its partners
Eurocontrol Maastricht and Noracon at the Canso Air Traffic Management
dinner this month in Amsterdam.
