The volume of global air traffic has been steadily increasing for years. To accommodate the anticipated growth moving forward, Airbus is supporting PEGASE (Providing Effective Ground & Air data Sharing via Extended Projected Profile) - which is part of the SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) initiative. PEGASE connects jetliner and ground systems to optimise trajectory in three dimensions (latitude, longitude and altitude), plus time with real-time exchange of trajectory information – the Extended Projected Profile – between aircraft and air traffic management systems.
