The European A-SMGCS project EMMA first consolidated the surveillance and conflict alert functions at three airports (Prague Ruzyne, Milano Malpensa and Toulouse Blagnac), and the successor project EMMA2 will focus on advanced onboard guidance support to pilots and planning support to controllers. The main objective of EMMA is to enable the harmonised A-SMGCS implementation at European airports. A mature technical & operational concept, as developed through EMMA, will ensure consistency of traffic information given to controllers and pilots. This is the basis for a common situation awareness and safe ground operations. The associated operational concept has define the roles and tasks of the onboard and ground stakeholders and the procedures from an overall, holistic point of view. The development of conflict detection and resolution has not only increase safety but also efficiency. The project is following an iterative development process with system maturing phases followed by functional and operational testing phases. Two test campaigns were developed. Licensed controllers as well as aircraft pilots and ground vehicles drivers were involved in testing in order to gain realistic and operative results. Controllers and pilots were trained in a simulated environment and on-site to prepare them to cope with a level 1 or 2 A-SMGCS under real operational conditions. The systems implemented were to be verified and validated against the predefined operational and technical requirements. On-site long term trials at these test sites and additionally at the busiest European Hub at Paris were carried out. The harmonised concepts of operations was be applied and validated thanks to functional and operational testing under real operational conditions. Active participation of licensed controllers and pilots from different countries has ensured the success of EMMA on site validation.
