DFS extends ETAS Software Order - Permanent monitoring of flight efficiency now also including piston aircraft types and all emission types from aircraft engines for the five largest German Airlines

July 2016 | Safety Assessment

In April 2016, DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH ordered our „Enhanced Trajectory Analysis System“ (ETAS) to be implemented at DFS headquarters in Langen. As the interim checks of the implementation processes run out very positive, DFS now decided to extend the tool’s capabilities by ordering the optional “Turbo Prop and emissions module” allowing detailed emission calculations per flight now for all types of aircraft to be used for the "Arbeitsgemeinschaft Optimiertes Fliegen" comprising Lufthansa group, TUIfly, Condor Flugdienst, Air Berlin and Germania for daily analysis and evaluation of all flight tracks. The extended version will be delivered to DFS in January 2017.
