SALSA is based on Multi-source ADS-B architecture of a system-of-systems that can automatically track, acquire and deliver trajectory information to ATC. Starting with an assessment of prevailing state and current developments in the context area in ATC/ATM and the extension of Free Route Airspace (FRA) foreseen by SESAR, SALSA aims to present the revised separation minima as potential new standard for the non-radar airspace. SALSA aims to achieve such new standards based on exploratory research and robust simulation and modelling in the context of multi-source ADS-B system and required performances. Although SALSA modelling and simulation are primarily for the separation minima reduction and not as a predictor of collision-risks, as part of the study, first assessment of impact of system performance on flight safety is provided.
The study outcome will provide a basis for further developing the concept for the intended benefits of multi-source ADS-B in supporting enhanced air-space and separation management.
