Abstract

The performance and ATC integration of DLR’s wake vortex advisory system "WSVBS" (Wirbelschleppen-Vor-hersage- und -Beobachtungssystem) for the dependent parallel runway system 25L and 25R at Frankfurt Airport are described. WSVBS has components to forecast and monitor the local weather and to predict and monitor wake transport and decay along the glide paths. WSVBS is integrated in the arrival manager AMAN of DLR. Each 10 minutes it delivers minimum safe aircraft separation times for the next hour to air traffic control. These times are translated into operational modes for runways 25L/R aim-ing at improving the capacity. From 66 days of a perform-ance test at Frankfurt it was found that the system ran stable, the predicted minimum separation times were safe and the capacity improving concepts of operation could be used in 75% of the time. From fast-time simulations the eventual capacity gain for Frankfurt was estimated to be 3% taking into account the real traffic mix and operational constraints in the period of one month.
