ASSET is co-funded by
the European Commission

  • ASSET is a research project within the 7th European Research Framework Programme (Cooperation/Transport)

  • 14 highly qualified partners in 5 countries from industry and research representing a broad spectrum of relevant stakeholders work together in ASSET

  • On time performance of European air transport is suboptimal largely resulting from a variance in off-block times. This leads to poor punctuality and the necessity for costly time buffers

  • System performance at airports bear large potential for improving punctuality and predictability though many research initiatives stem from ATM research focussing on A-SMGCS and CDM Procedures with a natural gravity only on airside aspects
