Welcome to IMET!

IMET is a SESAR Joint Undertaking long term research project Investigating optimal approach for future trajectory prediction (TP) systems to use METeorological uncertainty information.

Meteorological forecasts may contain uncertainty information. However, that information is underused in air traffic management (ATM) applications. It is envisaged that incorporating Met uncertainty information will benefit TP of aircrafts, subject to ATM constraints such as minimise flight time, fuel usage, and environmental footprint, without compromising safety. In IMET, a standard trajectory predictor (TP) will be extended so as to input Met information including uncertainty. The extended TP’s output will consequently contain uncertainty which, in turn, can be utilised by a TP based decision support tool (DST), such as Medium Term Conflict Detector (MTCD), Conflict Resolution Assistant (CORA), and Arrival Manager (AMAN).
