AirTOP Airside Aircraft

MODEL, VISUALIZE, AND ANALYZE AIRPORT GROUND VEHICLE OPERATIONS

The AirTOP Airside Aircraft module allows airport authorities, operators, consultants, and other stakeholders to assess and improve airport capacity by modeling airside aircraft operations.

It supports the rule-based modeling of:

  • Stand/gate allocation
  • Push/pull procedures, including taxibot/eTaxi concepts
  • Taxi flow control
  • Runway entry and exit selection
  • Single and multiple runway sequencing
  • Runway crossing
  • Turnaround management
  • De-icing procedures
  • Ground metering and Departure Management (DMAN)
  • Dynamic runway direction changes
  • And more

In situations demanding anything from the redefinition of taxi routes to changes in the runway mode of operation or new ground equipment, AirTOP’s Airside Aircraft module allows users to visualize potential operational bottlenecks and test alternative scenarios. Detailed airside layouts and procedures can be created, modified, simulated and compared using the powerful integrated 2D and 3D graphical user interface and performance indicators such as fuel-burn, taxi-time, or runway queues can be extracted and discussed with stakeholders on a common platform.

This module can be used as a standalone application or in combination with other AirTOP modules to provide complete gate-to-gate simulation capabilities.
