contribution to opstimal

In work package 1, integration and usage of DLR’s efficient conflict detection for large traffic scenarios, where an n-dimensional bisection of airspace allows a significant reduction of complexity, resulting in a performance where conflicts of one 4D-trajectory can be detected in a European traffic sample holding more than 30k flights in ~10ms on standard PC hardware.

In work package 3, beside its role as work package lead, DLR integrates and provides its airport collaborative decision making (ACDM) simulation, a dedicated development of an airport-net-performance-display as well as several dedicated tool developments for the System Wide Information Management (SWIM) compliant distribution of flight plans, their associated updates and timing information for synchronization purposes.

In work package 4, DLR assists in and provides solutions for the general SWIM compliant data sharing of the whole project.
