This paper reports on flight trials that were performed under the auspices of an industry-led European Commission project known as More Autonomous Aircraft in the Future ATM System (MA-AFAS) . Focus of the project was on technical retrofit solutions for integrating Airborne Separation Assistance System (ASAS) functions on aircraft. Pilots were given assistance in performing “pass behind” or “merge behind” maneuvers. Despite the promising results, incorporating a fully integrated gate-to-gate airborne system using ASAS into a current generation flight management system remains cost prohibitive.
