Improvement of the Aircraft Design process for Air Traffic Management evaluations

Abstract : In the field of Aircraft Design, new transport concepts rely heavily on aero-propulsive effects with the objective of providing step changes in terms of energy consumption. Given the strong dependency of the level of lift with respect to engine settings, there is an added value for the designers to complete full simulations of the operational mission to verify the viability of the selected architecture. Regarding Air Traffic Management, the need for more accurate trajectories as well as solutions to characterize new aircraft in the air space has been identified. Taking the opportunity of these shared requirements, the authors present in this paper the coupling between a conceptual design sizing tool and an ATM simulator. The objective is to pave the way for future optimizations of the global system where aircraft would be designed taking into account real flight routes defined by ATM constraints. To validate the simulation model generated by the sizing code, resulting climb trajectories as well as initial cruise phases are compared with real flight traces recorded with an ADS-B antenna.
