Noise Reduction Measures
By usage of Research and Development programmes and other activities which enable both the assessment of the impact of noise resulting from ATM activities and identification of the means to limit or reduce their impact whilst accommodating growing demand. This could include performing noise impact assessments upon demand.
Minimising Gaseous Emissions:
- To produce and implement ATM developments and concepts, including ATFM enhancements, which provide reduced ground delays, shorter routes, more optimum flight profiles and reduced airborne holding, thereby reducing fuel burn and associated emissions.
- To develop Research and Development programmes, analytical tools and models, which assess the impact of emissions resulting from ATM activities, and identify the means to limit or reduce their impact.
- To improve co-ordination between airport operators, aircraft operators and air traffic services in order to use the airspace and ground infrastructure more efficiently.
