Optimising runway usage at high-demand, capacity-constrained airports can be difficult, especially for mixed-mode operations where airports have only one runway for both arrivals and departures. The Orthogon Integrated Arrival Departure Manager solution solves the problem of when and where to insert departures into the airport arrival stream.
While individual AMAN and DMAN systems offer important benefits, an integrated system unlocks additional improvements for mixed-mode runways such efficiency and capacity improvement. The system allows for more flexibility of mixed-mode operations by identifying gaps in the arrival sequence, to be utilised for additional departures. Moreover, a more realistic and precise accuracy on landing and departure times will increase predictability. Consequently, situational awareness is improved for Tower and Approach allowing them to better plan while accomplishing their performance goals.
