Abstract:

Interval Management-Spacing IM-S is a concept enabled by Automatic Dependent Surveillance- Broadcast ADS-B technology. It consists of ground and flight deck-based capabilities and procedures designed to enable aircraft to achieve and maintain spacing relative to each other.IM-S delegates the spacing task to the flight deck and enables flight crews to follow speed guidance generated by avionics to achieve andor maintain spacing relative to a Target Aircraft. IM-S increases throughput in capacity constrained airspace by spacing aircraft closer togethermore consistently than is otherwise possible.
