The U.S. Trade and Development Agency is hosting a workshop to facilitate the exchange of best practices and technologies for reducing aviation emissions and fuel consumption, as well as for improving the efficiency of airline operations. The workshop will connect U.S. companies to key decision makers from several Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies to discuss how advanced air traffic management (ATM) and air traffic control (ATC) solutions can support these efforts.
Commercial aviation and air traffic across the APEC region, particularly within Southeast Asia, continues to expand with corresponding effects on congestion, route times, fuel consumption and overall transportation costs. Stakeholders throughout the region are seeking technologies and practices to achieve ATM efficiencies in order to reduce fuel consumption (which reduces costs as well), decrease carbon emissions and increase capacity while not requiring capital intensive infrastructure changes (which also leads to cost savings).
The event will feature case study examples of how ATC and ATM techniques can lead to positive efficiency benefits. It will also highlight the results of a recent USTDA-funded effort to assess how Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) and Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) tools can be used to improve the efficiency of airline operations and reduce aviation emissions and fuel consumption.
