Metron Aviation is the leading innovator in air traffic flow management (ATFM) solutions for the global aviation industry and is a committed partner to air navigation service providers (ANSPs), airlines, airports, and civil aviation authorities worldwide.
Metron’s ATFM technology managed the flights for 30% of all global passengers in 2019. Metron’s ATFM systems are currently deployed in the United States, Singapore, Australia, the Republic of Korea, Colombia, Curaçao, and South Africa.
Building on its distinction for operational excellence and innovation, Metron offers demand capacity balancing, weather resilience and capacity modeling, post-operations analytics, environmental metrics, along with expert operational support and training.
Working with ANSPs from around the globe, Metron supplies turn-key solutions for full ATFM implementation suitable to a variety of ANSP environments and goals. From business case and needs analysis, to systems integration and implementation, Metron has unparalleled tools and services that enable ANSPs and stakeholders to minimize delays, improve capacity utilization, increase predictability, reduce CO2 emissions, and advance performance through post-operation analysis.
Metron’s solutions provide:
• Demand Capacity Balancing
• Collaborative Decision Making
• Post-Operational Analysis
• Data Management and Systems Integration
• Weather Translation and Capacity Impact
• Environmental Reporting
• Operational and Technical Training
Metron’s HARMONY platform provides demand prediction and monitoring for airports and airspace, and enables ANSPs to perform demand capacity balancing through modeling, initiation, monitoring, and revision of automated traffic management measures including arrival and departure ground delay programs, airspace flow programs, slot interval programs, and fix balancing, among others. It enables authorized aircraft operators to optimize their schedules through slot substitutions that can result in delay reductions to one or more flights.
Metrics and reporting are key requirements for evaluating and improving ATFM operations. Metron’s data architecture allows rapid analytical queries to identify and evaluate problem areas, inefficiencies, trends, and the effectiveness of and compliance with ATFM measures and procedures, among others.
Metron offers a mechanism for estimating airport and airspace capacity based on changing weather conditions. Metron’s weather translation technologies convert weather forecasts into accurate depictions of weather impacts on airports, traffic flows, and airspace. Raw meteorological forecasts are transformed into representations of avoidance regions, route
blockages, and airspace and airport capacity reductions and constraints. These capacity reductions are layered with forecasted traffic demand to predict demand- capacity imbalances that will impede operations en route as well as for each runway configuration at an airport. Metron’s weather translation products provide common situational awareness among air carriers and traffic managers mitigating the weather impacts of convection, turbulence, ceiling & visibility, winter weather, surface winds, and icing.
Metron is experienced in environmental and energy analysis and can generate fuel burn and CO2 emissions metrics as an integrated component within the HARMONY product.
Metron understands that the successful implementation of ATFM requires more than a purely technical solution; it requires an appropriate concept of operations, and processes and procedures. Metron's subject matter experts are experienced air traffic controllers and air traffic flow managers who provide classroom and on- the-job training to ensure the ANSP’s ATFM solutions are suitable, repeatable, collaborative, and adaptable.
