The information is used for a variety of purposes such as responding to community noise complaints, reacting to and learning from incidents, and collecting valuable summary flight statistics for use with landing fee programs and to aid future planning decisions.
Recent developments with FlightOps have added the capability to display weather radar image overlays and display real time ASDI data which will assist operations staff with tactical decisions.
Weather images enable airfield operations staff to see local weather conditions and judge how these may affect operations at the airport. FlightOps also captures the weather images for historical replay alongside flight tracks to aid investigation of aircraft flying non standard departures.
ASDI is the Aircraft Situation Display to Industry, a feed of aircraft operational information from the FAA which covers the whole of North American airspace. The ASDI data is used to supplement the flight track data from the local airfield radar delivering flight track data over a wide area and critical information such as the Estimated Time of Arrival. Updated in real time, this information is very effective in helping airfield tactical planning.
Robert Brodecky, head of Brüel & Kjær EMS in North America said, “These additional capabilities really enhance the value of FlightOps, particularly in small airfields where this sort of data is not easily available. FlightOps provides a simple means to display what's happening now, while capturing a wealth of historical information to help investigation, planning and marketing at the airport”.
