Technical systems tend to undergo changes and thus will sooner or later require adjustments to new requirements or conditions. Currently, major changes in Air Traffic Management (ATM) are on the way, as ATM modernizations programmes like SESAR or NextGEN are getting momentum. ATM systems are rather complex and pose high demands on safety. Besides safety, other performance parameters like efficiency or environmental and climate impact have to be taken into account. Here, simulations can help to evaluate advantages of new developments or ideas, without jeopardizing the safety of others. The DLR’s Institute of Flight Guidance operate an Air Traffic Simulation software called TrafficSim, which in detail is capable to simulate realistic aircraft movements and handle scenarios with high traffic. Core of this software is a generic Flight Management System (FMS) which was developed at the DLR within the project PHARE (Programme for Harmonised ATM Research in EUROCONTROL). The purpose of this FMS is to create a 4D trajectory for each aircraft in the scenario. Data link communication could be used to negotiate trajectories with the ground part of simulation. The TrafficSim is in continuous development and generates configurable as well as realistic 4D trajectories, or even entire traffic scenarios (e.g. Europe-wide) for various research projects. Since the FMS is capable of most modern FMS-functions like full 4D, self separation, interval management and low Required Navigation Performance (RNP), all aircraft of a scenario can be individually equipped with a subset of modern airborne capabilities. This paper describes the steps to generate a 4D trajectory based scenario and shows the scope of the TrafficSim and how projects benefit from this simulation.
